  • On its first two albums, pioneering electronic Krautrock group Tangerine Dream made clear its intention to use SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS-era Pink Floyd as a jumping-off point for the band's cosmic explorations. While T. Dream was never anyone's idea of a rock band, the first two albums do feature electric guitar and drums used prominently in a way that at least tips its hat to the rock aesthetic. On ZEIT, the group moves definitively away from rock trappings into purely atmospheric, improvised electronics, creating soundscapes alternately ambient and avant-garde.
  • A key factor in this process was the solidification of the personnel. Synthesist Peter Baumann completed the trio lineup that would remain intact for the next five years and create the bulk of what's regarded as the group's classic work. For most of ZEIT, conventional melody and harmony are abandoned completely in favor of pure electronic textures. Things build slowly as waves of analog synth and heavily processed guitar ebb and flow in these largely rhythmless arrangements. Occasional melodic colors do appear in the form of a cello quartet, and the subtly elegant majesty of the group's constantly mutating sonic paintings makes ZEIT sound like the soundtrack to an odd-but-memorable dream.

Professional Reviews
Uncut (2/03, p.91) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Gothic liturgies of mellotron and synthesized abstraction..."

Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.112) - "...In an age when synthesisers were not yet polyphonic, a passing cello section provides the textures that dominate the opening seven minutes....[ZEIT is] icy, meditative calm..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ZEIT still stands as a monument to Tangerine Dream's early adventures in sound, an obelisk on some distant rock to mark the limits of '70s cosmic endeavour."
