Nice packaging and concept, but it falls a bit short of the mark in execution. Side one is almost totally dominated by Tangerine Dream's Tangram, which can be found on the album of the same name, so inclusion here seems a bit superfluous. Not only that, it is a pretty average TD track when compared with much of their early 70's output. With the extreme emphasis on 80's synthesizers, there is little on side two to distinguish one track or artist from another. I certainly respect the effort that went into this, but I would much rather hear a compilation of Kraftwerk, OMD, YMO, Tomita, and other early electronic artists, even if it might make for a more commercial outing.
Compilation from 1981 showcasing lots of creative avant garde music with emphasis on synths. Leftfield soundtracks, "hearts of space" type cosmic soundscapes, Melodic but yet abstract experiments, ocassional robotic alien voices here and there. Some of them have an odd bossanova casio easylistening vibe which add some lightness to some of the heavier tracks. Some touches of prog rock in some tracks. Underground music in the 21st century does sound like 80s inde underground music, but the mainstream music of the 21st so far ONLY wishes it could sound this lp,: as our contemporary radio and tv is clogged with derivative corporate hypercommercial dribble.
Some beautiful, exclusive music here...not ambient as stated...much more interesting than that!
