4 stars This is the defining live album from TD in the 1980's. Live Miles is good but Pergamon, recorded live in East Germany in 1986 is an abundantly strong piece of music. It is comprised of two halves, " Quichotte Part 1" and " Quichotte Part 2". The first piece is largely based on the Tangram Set themes, and as this was one of their top five studio releases, then you won't be left dissappointed. " Quichotte Part 2" however is the real jewel, the atypical build up from all TD members until Edgar Froese plays which must undoubtedley rank as one of his best guitar solo's this reviewer has ever heard him play. All the time Schmoelling and Franke's input of equally high standard. There is also a Force Majeure feel to this piece as well which hearks back to their peak from a creative standpoint. The energy on this album throbs and pulses and guarantees to get your adrenalin going. Best played loud. I cannot praise this enough, four and a half stars!
