Background: Released in 1971, Alpha Centauri was the second album by Tangerine Dream.
The album did not chart in either the U.S. or the UK.
As if the sound is breaking through your speakers, Alpha Centauri begins its journey. Crackling and swirling synthesizers seize control of your stereo. Like a call to psychedelic arms, the first track “Sunrise in the Third System” marches on with its organ. … Tangerine Dream’s style of “space music” had not yet been refined and revolutionized as it was a couple of releases later with Phaedra and Rubycon. Regardless, for those interested in a wilder and more reckless ride on the “space music” autobahn, Alpha Centauri should satisfy the need.
