"A friend recommended Tangerine Dream to me based on my appreciation of older Cabaret Voltaire (e.g. Micro-Phonies, TCTSatAotL). I had heard some of the stuff from the Risky Business soundtrack, which was okay but had a little too much 80s cheese-synth influence for my taste at the time. I usually don't judge a book by its cover, but the title of this compilation made my curiosity separate the cash from my hip pocket. What I took home was a delectable meal of psychedelic brainstir. Truly rich -- I'd put it in the top ten of my collection. Sit back, relax, close your eyes and let the analogue synths and insane guitar penetrate and take you where they will. (It also works well as an improved soundtrack for TV, movies, or life.)"
Good sampling of their weird stuff.

"This may not be for everyone. Maybe good for those who wonder what the first few years of Tangerine Dream is like. It does have the kind of music that makes you think you're in outer space. So don't expect the dance-techno type music here. Expect psychedelic space music.Now that this album is out-of-print and it's a limited edition 2 gold disc set, I wonder how much of a collector's item will it be. Only time will tell."

"This is one of my favorite Best of... compilations. This double disc collection highlights the best years (the early years) of Tangerine Dream. DOn't expect cheesy or melodic synths...this is psychadelic sutff living up to its title of space rock. These songs come close to about 20 minutes a piece. Blasting this on your CD player while going to bed makes for a trippy experience. Even though it is not really ambient, if you appreciate that kind of music than you will like this. This is such an undiscovered treasure. Obviously, Tangerine Dream are pioneers of electronica, and mixing it with rock. Truly is one of my favorite CDs."
