One of the most influential albums EVER!,
This review is from: Computer World (Audio CD)
This was another album that blew my mind when I heard it all those years ago (Echoes from Pink Floyd's Meddle, Tonto's Expanding Headband - Zero Time, Led Zeppelin II and Phaedra by Tangerine Dream were the previous ones)
The repercussive effects left by this album over time are so totally widespread it's difficult to know where to start, so I won't even go there.
Still fresh after nearly thirty years - and it looks as though the "English" version is available now too on CD (mine is the original CD issue in German). I hope the (Re?) mastering has done it justice - all too many engineers these days crank up the levels and smooth the loud bits out to make it "nicer" on a cheap "Argos" stereo, just likt the "safe" vinyl cuts we were given at the time.....
If you like contemporary music, it's ESSENTIAL that you at least get a listen to this work (and Man Machine if you like it).
