Notes:
A lot of the details on Zeit are inaccurate. According to an article by Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser, in Flash, No.11. Page 9. In German - it is stated that the sessions at Dierks Studio happened over two weeks in January 1972, largely by a quartet version of the group and with Florian Fricke involved in all the recordings except for 'Nebulous Dawn'. The album was mixed two weeks later after recording finished. An Ohr newsletter and Rock In Deutschland (Taurus Press) both give the release date as May 1972.

A truly powerful album. Eerie, droning, and somber sounds waver in and out like the waves of a black ocean filled with vast unknown. It'll make you feel like you've been ripped apart particle by particle and then put back together in a new world.

Great pressing. Wide range, lush sound. I was skeptical because I have worries when it comes to coloured vinyl. Bit the bullet and do not regret it at all. Amazing pressing.

Maybe it's just bad luck but my two copies sound really bad. The sound is very distant and lacks clarity.
And the pressing is super noisy with a lot of loud pops and hisses throughout the LP. Washing it with my RCM did'nt change anything.
Very difficult to enjoy this masterpiece with this release !

Steven Wilson was recently asked to name his favorite album of all time when being interviewed on Romanian TV. Without a moments hesitation he named this album and said it is the one he returns to the most. He even claims he neither understood nor liked it when he heard it for the first time and thought he would forget about it rather quickly. For some reason, however, he kept returning to it and says it has been growing on him ever since. What an amazing compliment.

I have nearly the exact same version but the Matrix / Runout: CTANG-3 12 A2 MASTERED BY DADC AUSTRIA instead of the A1 mentioned above.

Can anyone give a more detailed review about the sound and quality of this pressing? One reviewer says it sounds great another reviewer says it's noisy. I bought the Electronic Mediatation from last years RSD also reissued by Varese Vintage and it was one of the worst pressings I've ever heard, the pressing quality itself was fine but the sound was completely brick-walled, distant and extremely lacking clarity. I'm worried this pressing may suffer from the same subpar sound. Im not expecting audiophile quality here but at least decent dynamics and definition. If anyone can shed some light on the sound quality, please do, greatly appreciated.

I’ve bought the RSD 2018 culturefactory edition (CFU01145, 1500 copies), pressing seems fine and also translucent orange. Any comment on this version?

Impressed with this pressing! Sounds great to me. Any one else's LPs have two different variants of orange? For me sides A/B are a flat orange while C/D are a trans orange.

The godfathers of Dark Ambient, a "must have" album, a miliar stone in electronic music.
