4 stars Alpha Centauri is the album where Tangerine Dream started to develop the sound that became their signature sound. This album is dark, ambient, and spacey. Much more electronic-based than their electro-krautrock debut album, this album features space-like synths that float and drone on-and-on coupled with dark organ melodies that echo throughout the cosmic atmosphere. Experimental electronic pulses and sound effects work with the occasional acoustic percussion and flute to fill in the empty spaces when deemed appropriate. The title track is the most experimental one on the album, and is mostly a light, airy atmosphere with fluttering flute and ghostly female voices that sound like long dead space voyagers trapped in the outerbanks of our solar system.

Highly recommended for fans of Tangerine Dream looking for some of their most experimental electronic-based work.
