2 stars Electronic Meditation was an interesting start from Tangerine Dream. At this point Froese was inclined towards experimentations and free form in rock music (It is still rock, despite the enigmatic title). If you are more familiar with this group's synthesiser driven New Age and Ambient music, it may not be what you expect. I am more of a fan of TD's later works but still think this is important music which at one time had a huge cult following and it deserves to be heard. After all, many reviewers on this site certainly love this. It's also worth being aware that 'electronic' instruments such as synths were rare, expensive and fairly limited back then. This was recorded in a rented factory in Berlin, October 1969. Froese, Schulze and Schnitzler added some moods and eeriness by creating more home made sound effects, including taps from a typewriter, metal sticks and touches from a cello among others. The most memorable part is the openng of "Genesis" As I said, it's intriguing stuff and very spacey, but very "free" with very few musical structures. Not for everyone. 2 stars.
