Free System Projekt - Atmospheric Conditions. 2002 Netherlands

Atmospheric Conditions is a 2 CD set compiled of various outings from 2001 and 2002, including live stints in the USA and England. The Dutch collective Free System Projekt have long been considered one of the finest groups playing in the Berlin School revivalist style. Raging sequencers, mellotron overlays, and analog synthesizer soloing are the order of the day. Though the various tracks are all improvised, the sound is remarkably consistent, and the end result seem like variations on Tangerine Dream's Rubycon. In my mind, that is T. Dream's finest moment, so any group who can emulate that same composition style are much welcome here.

Personal collection
CD: 2002 Quantum

Fortunately I bought the 2 CD set when it came out. Today it's become prohibitively expensive.

Sensations' Fix - Portable Madness. 1974 Italy

And here we have... the single greatest space rock album of all time! No small claim that. Not an irreverent throw out to grab one's...
