'Crooks & Lovers' is their much anticipated debut album, an assured statement comprised of crafty complexities and coherently juxtaposed angles making use of the freedom from any immediate dancefloor demands.
Steve Schroeder's time with Tangerine Dream proved to be very short, as he soon was replaced with Peter Baumann. Baumann completed what would prove to be the classic and undoubtedly best line-up of Tangerine Dream, producing a string of eight albums that all are classics of 70's electronic progressive music. The first album from this line-up would also show itself to be one of the most ambitious and controversial ones of the band's entire career. It wouldn't be too far off the mark to describe Zeit as the Tales from Topographic Oceans of electronic progressive music.
