4 stars Electronic Meditation isn't like the Tangerine Dream albums that most people know. This debut is non-melodic, avant-garde, and experimental krautrock that follows no structure other than being unstructured. Most of the instrumentation is organic (percussion, violin, cello, etc.) compared to most of Tangerine Dream's discography, but the music is clearly still electronically dominant. For being as underrated as it is, this album is actually very original sounding krautrock. Tracks like "Journey Through a Burning Brain", "Cold Smoke" and "Ashes to Ashes" feature fine psychedelic krautrock-type guitar-based jamming with experimental electronic noises filling the background, and any krautrock fan should kind a lot to enjoy here. "Genesis" and "Resurrection", though, are electronic-based sonic experiments that feature slow percussion and near-tribal fluting.

All in all, I seriously feel this album is underrated greatly. Sure, it doesn't sound much like the Tangerine Dream that people love, but this is a surprisingly good album among the krautrock genre.
