5 stars Okay, so it is a Tangerine Dream album with no synthesizers what-so-ever. So what! It's a fantastic album with rich compositions, a unique sound to it and last but absolutely not the least, the lunatic, in a way punk-like, guitar work of the indisputable master of the instrument, Edgar Froese. The way he keeps on torturing his guitar is simply magnificent. We can also hear some ominous organs, the wonderful drumming of Klaus Schulze supporting Froeses guitar (it's a shame Schulze left immediately after this album), and some nice cello/violin-work by the third member of the band at the time, Conrad Schnitzler. I hesitated a while before giving this album the five-star rating, but then I realized there's no reason for that. It's just so different from the Virgin-era albums, but it's always nice if a band has some variety in their catalogue. TD just changed completely after this album, away the drums and guitars, in the synths. But this is a nice exception in their catalogue, a fine piece of 60's/70's psychedelia.
