Alpha Centauri ‎(LP, Album). If not quite as distinctive as the albums that came immediately before and after it, Alpha Centauri is nevertheless a strong work of '70s kosmiche music and a fascinating chapter in the ongoing story of Tangerine Dream. This issue comes complete with both sides of 1971's Ultima Thule single, the a-side of which is possibly the biggest anomaly in the TD catalogue (a somewhat conventional sounding progressive rock instrumental) and a live recording from the same year, which make it a particularly worthwhile purchase.

As if the sound is breaking through your speakers, Alpha Centauri begins its journey. Like a call to psychedelic arms, the first track "Sunrise in the Third System" marches on with its organ. The mixing of the three tracks found on Alpha Centauri leaves something to be desired, in that the tracks are not mixed the way they would be today with each track endlessly flowing into the next like a stream. Nonetheless, when one is not paying too close attention to such details, the album seems to flow quite smoothly.

Listening to 'Alpha Centauri' recalls an entire spectrum of emotion. Equal parts serenity and anxiety, this is an album so subtle that it can make your entire mood shift minutes before you can trace the cause back to the rising beat.

Schnitzler's replacement was the rambunctious organist Steve Shroyder (himself a member for only one album). The trio of Froese, Franke and Shroyder (along with two guest musicians) recorded TD's second record, Alpha Centauri, and had little difficulty living up to the freaky promise of the Dream's debut. Pieces like "Sunrise In the Third System" (an organ-led mystic processional) and the single (!) "Ultima Thule Part 1" (with a very non-TD rock thud) proved the band were learning how to pour maximum mood into more compact structures.

Comments:

lucky kitten
With my sealed copy the picture disc was ok but the main album record was so scuffed up it's unlistenable. Anyone else seeing anything like this?
