Review by Modrigue
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars One of the must innovative electronic music of its time ! Among the first bands to possess a Moog synthetizer, Tonto's Expanding Head Band offers with Zero Time smooth and relaxing experimental songs, surprisingly melodic by moments. The album alternates very good and weaker passages and venture into a variety of sounscapes.

The record opens with the little cosmic epic Cybernaut. Its efficient slow pulsing rythm and powerful keyboards solos announce future works by Synergy. A mindblowing overture ! In opposite, Jetsex is the most experimental track of the disc, containing mostly strange effects without a true melody. There comes the highlight, Timewhys, displaying a grooving and enchanting space ambiance, very in the vein of Gong's You and Tim Blake's albums, a couple of years before ! The next song, Aurora, is the most peaceful of the album, as if you were in a spaceship drifting slowly into a lost galaxy... to then arrive a myserious place put in music with the improbable and ethereal Riversong, which sounds very mystical and oriental. The disc ends with Tama, a small melancholic but nonetheless enjoyable song.

With their first album, Tonto's Expanding Head Band proves that they are one of the most inventive band ahead of their time. The record predates many electronic gimmicks that will be employed later in the 70s'. Experimentaly composed but quite accessible, Zero Time will make the happiness of ambient and electronic music explorers ! 3,5 stars !

2 stars Built by boffins

"Zero time" is more important for its place in prog, and indeed music, history than for the music it actually contains. T.O.N.T.O. stands for The Original New Timbral Orchestra. This is not in fact an orchestra, but the first polyphonic synthesiser. Up until its invention, synthesisers were monophonic, giving the type of sound first heard on tracks such as ELP's "Lucky man". The developers of T.O.N.T.O. were Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff, the performers on this album. Hence you can see why I say the music is of secondary importance, it was written by a couple of boffins and without wishing to be unfair, at times it sounds like it!

The album consists of just six tracks spread unevenly over the two side. The three on side one ("Outside") run to around 13 minutes, while side two ("Inside") is over 20 minutes. No other instruments are used other than the synthesiser, which provides the rhythms and the main themes. While the sound effects and unique synthesised atmospheres will these days sound somewhat tame and prosaic, at the time (1971) they were baffling and exciting.

This album really is all about the sounds though. Apart from some processed vocals on "Riversong", it is entirely instrumental, with spacey sounds and slow atmospheric washes dominating throughout.

The album served as an effective marketing tool for the T.O.N.T.O, with many commercial artists using it to distinguish their music soon after. "Zero time" has taken on a legendary status due to the album's rarity in the intervening years. The reality is though that it is an interesting rather than enjoyable album. It will now return to my LP collection to lie undisturbed for another 20 years.

3 stars Full of great big fat Moog electronic keyboards from the late 60's, sounding pretty beefy and splodgy. The last track 'Riversong', sounds astonishingly like parts of Robert Rich's 'Bestiary' album from 2003. In fact much of this album sounds incredibly like 'Aphex Twin' or a softer 'Autechr ...
