The best TD live recording album
Joao Roberto Penna | Santos, SP Brazil | 05/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For me, the best TD live recording album. It's divided in only two parts, with a clear influence by Tangram's studio album (from 1980). Set One is calm, with a beautiful introduction and an introspective atmosphere by keyboards, is excellent! But the Set Two is a magical and incredible voyage with intensive rhythms and the best electric guitar solo by Edgar Froese: he plays with passion, distortion, until his hard solo turns into a keyboards sound after 8 minutes, in a perfectly consonance. Don't doubt: a great album by a great band, in a great live recording! Extremely recommended!"
"...absolutely the finest work by Tangerine Dream."

"I own 26 TD discs and this is the most exquisite listening experience. This classic pre-dates the fall of the Berlin wall and is pure ectasy in every regard.

Those fans of the movie Wavelength will especially appreciate this work."
Good for Berlin

"Pergamon is a live Tangerine Dream album that was recorded in East Berlin, 1980, shortly after Schmoelling was introduced to the band. One can hear elements of previous albums, such as Tangram, but there are exploratory passages that are unique to this album, that make the work stand apart. Thankfully, Franke was still in the band, and his signature sound, haunting and mysterious, is heard throughout, giving it an industrial air that will please fans of Rubicon. There's a lot of clever percussion, and at times one wonders if it will eventually overcome the musical elements of the album. The recording is not as crisp as TD's other live albums, such as Dominion, but each voice is distinctly heard and, overall, it is completely listenable. Listen to it before you buy it: fans will probably enjoy it very much, but newcomers may want to get more accoustomed to the TD sound before jumping in."
