2 stars "The music consists in 2-3 humming refrigerators at the same time, plus a portative fan that turns back and forth to make the anyway inexistent rhythm, and finally a coming cluster of threatening killer bees! "


This is the most stunningly harsh yet appropriate review I've yet seen for an album on PA. If only I'd read it, I might not have bought it. I can't say my opinion is quite as disapproving, but I have to insist that greenback's review hits a lot closer to the mark than I would like.

If you've ever used an album to punish someone, that isn't a good thing.

Tangerine Dream's vision of outer space is frightening and desolate. If they had turned to soundtracks sooner, they might have written this for 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is good in the sense that they've succeeded in realizing a vision. I will admit from time to time I can find myself getting into it. However I feel, this is not an album most people would enjoy, never mind bother to sit all the way through.

Keep this one very low on your priority list. Listen to the core Tangerine Dream works (Rubycon, et al.) listen to other bands and other genres and if you remain curious then come back to Zeit, but be warned it isn't to be taken lightly. 2 Stars, for diehard Tangerine Dream fans, completionists, terminally bored people, passive aggressive librarians, aliens, serial killers and people who like H R Giger a little too much.

Excellent sound system not optional. It constantly pushes the bounds of every speaker system I've tried (My Bang and Olufson earphones, car speakers which are usually surprisingly good and my laptop).

R-A-N-M-A | 2/5 |
