4 stars Very difficult, avant-garde music to assess. With their third album, Tangerine Dream creates "Zeit," an album of epic proportions to launch the listener into the true realm of outer space. It's not romanticized outer space- but true space: vast, cold, dark, unforgiving and brutal. Not easily penetrable, many will be alienated by the long, droning cellos or oscillator hums. If you listen well enough, there's lots of stuff going on, but it's very gradual and laid-back- Tangerine Dream definitely wanted to take their time in the delivery of their suites.

I find it not so much music as it is "sonic art." Zeit is hard to "get" and even more so to "appreciate," but persistence and an open mind will give you a reward. Not for the faint of heart, though.
