Tangerine Dream's "Zeit" is the best ambient music album I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Its musical soundscapes are mind-blowing. They range in ambiance from the sedate to the insistent. Though each of the four tracks runs nearly twenty minutes, they never lose their intensity as they explore their separate themes to the full, leaving the listener satiated and (in my case at least) smiling.
How to describe this kind of music--everybody brings something different to it...the music blows electronic bubbles that drift through your mental horizons, sometimes tickling your brain, other times gently carrying your mind to distant shores, and still other times challenging you with eerie soundbursts. "Zeit" is best heard in a quiet room with headphones on, because there is a lot going on here that will reward you only on multiple listenings. Depending on your own mood, you may even perceive the songs differently as you listen to them repeatedly.
In short, I never get tired of this album. If you like ambient music with a dark feel to it, I predict you will love "Zeit."
