5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 Sept. 2005
Format: Audio CD
This rather strange collaboration with drugs guru Timothy Leary has been dismissed by some as overly gimmicky and not up to usual Ash Ra Tempel standards. It does, in my humble opinion, still have much to offer though.
Downtown opens the proceedings in funky, bluesy style and shows how this most mercurial of bands could effectively traverse genres at the drop of a hat. Power Drive and Right Hand Lover sound like almost conventional pop/rock songs (albeit with most unconventional lyrical themes!) with Gottsching showing he can rock it with the best of 'em when he wants to, before Velvet Genes gives us a more Krautrock-ish track. The long track Time, which covered the whole of the second side of the original album, returns to the classic Ash Ra Tempel 'kosmische' sound, reprising the seminal chord-sequence first heard on Schwingungen, but with the Timothy Leary voiceover. As a great example of trippy ambient hypnotic mood-changing music, I like it. Lots.
This is, perhaps, not the best album to listen to as an introduction to this most mercurial of bands (better to go for Schwingungen, Join Inn or the eponymous first album), but is still a very worthwhile effort and highly recommended.

This album came out in the seventies and has always been a bit of an outsider production. Acid guru Tim Leary teams up with Ash Ra Tempel to produce this genuinely odd album designed for a psychedelic 'night in'...to take you somewhere else.
Imagine a very spaced out Velvet Underground meeting an acid evangelist wanting to 'do things' to your head... armed with a new-fangled synthesiser, some out there attitude... and lots of incense ... in a crazy groovy loft apartment somewhere in Haight Ashbury...and you are somewhere near what you get here.
File under Far Out.

By D. J. H. Thorn VINE VOICE on 1 Feb. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One of a series of 'cosmic music' projects overseen by Rolf Ulrich Kaiser, 'Seven Up' is full of surprises. I was taken aback when I first heard the opening few minutes of the 15-minute 'Space'. The perfunctory, drunken blues of 'Downtown' wasn't what I expected. It dissolves in a psychedelic blur, however, and when the band emerge from the other side they launch into the raging freakout, 'Powerdrive'. Each 'song' starts and ends in similar fashion but represents a different pop genre, and, apart from 'Downtown', is performed against a background of cosmic turbulence.

The other track, 'Time', occupies 21 minutes and builds gradually through a series of atmospheric twists and turns that never settle into any pattern. At about halfway, however, it takes on the beautifully eerie shape that runs through to the end. The production on 'Seven Up' is hardly crystal clear, but this enhances the effect AT achieve. As for Timothy Leary, he appears to contribute little to the album apart from some well-placed utterances on 'Time'. Not an album I took to at first, but one which I love now.

Oh man! What a trip..... 2 Sept. 2005
By Cartimand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This rather strange collaboration with drugs guru Timothy Leary has been dismissed by some as overly gimmicky and not up to usual Ash Ra Tempel standards. It does, in my humble opinion, still have much to offer though.

Downtown opens the proceedings in funky, bluesy style and shows how this legendary band could effectively traverse genres at the drop of a hat. Power Drive and Right Hand Lover sound like almost conventional pop/rock songs (albeit with most unconventional lyrical themes!) with Gottsching showing he can rock it with the best of 'em when he wants to, before Velvet Genes gives us a more abstract Krautrock-ish intro that soon metamorphoses back into some blues riffs before reprising Downtown. The long track Time, which covered the whole of the second side of the original album, returns to the classic Ash Ra Tempel 'kosmische' sound, reprising the seminal chord-sequence first heard on Schwingungen, but with the Timothy Leary voiceover. As a great example of beautiful, trippy, ambient, hypnotic mood-changing music, I like it. Lots.

"Remaster" Is Not Remastered 28 Dec. 2012
By Jeff Carney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Is the idea here that Manuel Gottsching did the original vinyl rip released by Spalax? Because this is the same old vinyl rip, so slapping a "Remastered by Manuel Gottsching" sticker on the front really doesn't bode well for the integrity of those involved in this project, as it suggests that there is something new here.

Look, if tapes are lost, then fine. That's life. But to use the same old vinyl rip that Spalax released and not even a fresh one after all these years? On top of that, I cannot hear a thing that is different about this version. They sound the same. If the old transfer was going to be used, I guess the decision was made that nothing much needed to be done with it.

I cannot agree, as the old transfer used some denoising and a far better vinyl rip could be done with some proper declicking software now.

Shame.

4 stars for this album, but 2 stars for the 2011 "remaster."

About the latest Remastering 22 May 2010
By Speedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The previous (Spalax Label) cd edition is not too good, sound wise (muddy). But this new one is an improvement (check that it has the 'Remastered by Manuel Gottsching' sticker on the front). Don't know why the other reviewer did not acknowledge about this. There is more clarity and more high frequencies to be heard now. The album is still not well recorded as it was originally made live and in 1972. But it is definitely worth the purchase if you like this album. Also the 4 pages booklet has more info and i think it includes the original artwork. Recommended to all Ash Ra Tempel heads out there!

Great psycodelic experience 25 May 2012
By f_vandenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Two of the classical psycodelic tracks, with the hypnotic voice of Timothy Leary! "Time" and "space" are long and complex tracks, its a nostalgic/lysergic most have.

Oh a journey through "Space" and "Time", how wonderful. 16 July 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is Ash Ra Tempel's third CD imported from Germany to the USA. Join on a musical journey through "Space" and "Time" as the New Age group Ash Ra Tempel captures the movements of these two medleys, including the beauty of this timeless recording.
