Only gets 1 star because I can't give 0,
This review is from: Zeit (Expanded Edition) (Audio CD)
This album has got to be the most tedious monotonous drone I've ever heard, I gave it a chance and listened to it with an open mind and just wished I hadn't, complete waste of time. Yes, it was made before my time but so is most of the music I listen to, this is music I wont be listening to again. Pretentious crap

This isn't a review of the product, merely an expression of taste.

Clearly this reviewer has had a taste by-pass. One Direction fans go home!

TD are true pioneers of electronic music.As a few other people have commented your so called 'review' is not a review as such, its more like a statement of your lack of musical knowledge and taste.

Its really not an album for the ipod "listen for 3 seconds then skip to the next track" generation; Zeit, like most electronic music of the time demands attention and a quiet moment to reflect and envelope yourself in the soundscapes. But then if you don't get it, you don't get it.

Although I have TD's full catalogue and got into them at school when they released "Phaedra", I completely concur with your feelings about "Zeit". You get the impression that they started with the name ("Time" in German) and worked from that. That is "Well, we'd better record something 'loooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnn

Barry Lees - I understand that you don't like it - thats fair enough. But I love the slowly evolving textures and atmospheres - its quite beautiful - in my opinion. It's also my opinion that from Stratosfear onwards they were really much less interesting and inventive than with their earlier work. The last time I saw TD live was on the tour when they recorded Ricochet ('75 or '76 - I forget which now - so long ago) they really were a great band then.

I entirely agree: I saw them in (I think) Autumn 1974 or '75 when they were assembling the music for what was to become "Ricochet" - Christoph linking the different segments' tempos with drums in the studio. I remember them heralding their purchase of "computer" [digital] instruments but, with the programmable sounds, they may as well have been carrying around recorded backing tracks to use onstage because they seemed to lose their 'spontaneous' edge around that time. My own opinion is that the "Virgin" period was their best and the recent stuff is becoming "background" or "elevator" music. I still maintain, however, that the likes of "Zeit" and "Electronic Meditation" should be deleted in the interests of good taste.

I think expectation is key when it comes to an album like Zeit. It can only work and please the ear if one desires a sonic experience rather than music with chords and harmonies.
