Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of this 1972 album from the German Electronic pioneers including a bonus live disc. Zeit was recorded at the Dierks Studio near Cologne and also featured a guest appearance by Florian Fricke of Popol Vuh. One of the group's finest early albums, Zeit was enthusiastically championed in the UK by John Peel and was a major breakthrough for Tangerine Dream. This edition includes a previously unreleased bonus CD of Tangerine Dream's legendary Kalngwaldt performance recorded in Cologne in November 1972, fully restores the entire unedited double LP version to compact disc and includes a lavishly illustrated deluxe booklet with new essay.

Perhaps no other album better defines the aims and techniques of kosmische musik than Zeit. As Julian Cope explains in his Krautrocksampler, "...its remarkable unchanging unfolding near-static barely-shifting vegetable organic-ness takes over the room and permeates the whole house...the room in which Zeit is playing becomes that room." To say that Zeit is otherworldly is understating the matter considerably. These are the sounds the stars make as they exhaust their nuclear fuel and collapse inward through the fabric of space itself to some inscrutable fate. These are sonic portraits of yawning alien vistas, hymns to the staggering distances between the island galaxies. Zeit evokes ancient memories of our extraterrestrial origins, visions that are at once immense, incomprehensible, profound, amorphous and utterly cosmic. The sustained cello note that slowly emerges out of the silence at the beginning of "Birth of Liquid Plejades" resonates like some fearful cord of memory being struck at the base of one's brain, dredging up dim shadows of mystical transfigurations from the inorganic to the sentient, from nonexistence to being. Like an iceberg slowly forming, the piece adds layer upon layer of sound, eventually drifting into an interlude of stasis and calm supported by Edgar Froese's plaintive organ and the aqueous flow of guest Florian Fricke's modular Moog. "Nebulous Dawn" ushers in Eno's ambient music program a decade ahead of schedule. Rising out of a primordial drone, the piece quickly turns into a lysergic nightmare, visualized in sound and transmitted on the radio waves of the subconscious mind.Read more ›

Note: there is a further remastered version of this album out with two discs that ups the dynamic range on the last 3 songs considerably. Sound Quality is all up to your ears. There are now I think 3 main CD versions. The original which is a little crusty, the early 2000 version, and the two disc. I would get the 2 disc and try and find the others on the net if you need them. The cover art for this one and the newest one are slightly different in color and tone.

You really don't need to know much about this one. It is one of TD's utter masterpieces. Innovative and enthralling to the end. "Birth of Liquid Plejades" may be the single greatest ambient/electronic track in history. Eerie and so encompassing in high-end headphones. Smoke up for this one and turn the lights off. There is nothing else quite like it.

So this is Tangerine Dream's third album from 1971, back in their early days when they were more droning than melodic (ie., it's nothing like Tangram). You won't find the repeating arpeggio-like sequences on this one that you find on Phaedra from a couple of albums later either. In fact parts of this album remind me a lot of Rubycon, but this one is darker and more haunting and less rhythmic (still has rhythm though), has a kind of sci-fi/horror soundtrack feel to it. I really enjoy listening to the beats - by which I mean the way the frequencies of the different synth sounds interact with each other so that they constructively interfere.

This album is ace and I enjoyed it because of how moody it is. All the tracks have their own character to them so it doesn't get too monotonous. Probably my second favourite TD album I've heard so far (which includes Electronic Meditation, Phaedra, Ricochet, Stratosfear, Force Majeure, Tangram and Exit).

My impression of Zeit is that the band members of Tangerine Dream were aiming to try and out-do the dark, nightmarish psychedelic period of Pink Floyd (such as what we experienced from albums like A Saucerful of Secrets, Meddle and even the studio portion of Ummagumma for that matter). I think it actually works. This is some EXTREMELY moving stuff.

Unlike Pink Floyd however, there's no actual songwriting to speak of. Just waves upon waves and layers upon layers of incredibly spooky soundtrack/ambient sounds that will definitely take your mind through a variety of the creepiest settings and places in the entire universe. Seriously, this stuff is so whacked out that your imagination won't stop at just planet Earth. This journey takes us to Neptune and beyond!

Interesting side note- the more you hear this stuff, the more it absorbs into your mind. The ambient sounds actually manage to come together to create lengthy masterpieces. I can't explain HOW it works, but it does. Give it a chance. Definitely the kind of album you need to hear several times in order to fully and properly digest.

My favorite song by FAR is the opener titled "Birth of Liquid Plejades". The first 7 minutes sounds like nothing but the DARKEST violin (or cello) solo in the history of mankind. It sounds like it's just repeatedly playing one or two ominous notes over and over, totally reminiscent of the soundtrack from the relatively popular film There Will Be Blood. After that portion of the song is over, these organs come into the picture and they're noticeably creepy as well. The synths are remarkably melodic, if I recall. That carries us through most of the song.

Let me describe "Birth of Liquid Plejades" even more.
