"This is a stimulating, melodic, well organized performance which serves as a retrospective of Tangerine Dream's lengthy career and demonstrates their important role in the history of electronic and psychedelic music. Many beautiful pieces, especially Phaedra and Logos, segueing into each other seamlessly. The video is pretty muted but the lights provide an excellent atmosphere. We are favored with an appearance by the soulful Linda Spa but frankly I was perfectly content admiring the swaying movements and brilliant smile, as well as other parts, of percussionist and visual magnet Iris Camaa who pounded her instruments with tremendous verve and skill, providing an effective counterpart to the other, sphinx-like musicians. A very long concert and an excellent value."
A Retrospective on an Incredible Career

"First, this is not a reunion of the band members who performed on the landmark album that was honored during this nearly three-hour concert on June 11, 2005, at Shephered's Bush Empire, London; it is the TD lineup at the time in what is a fantastic retrospective look at an incredible recording career.
The 26 numbers are performed by Edgar Froese, Jerome Froese, Thorsten Quaesching, Zlatko Perica, Linda Spa and Iris Camaa, with the salute to Phaedra given an update as "Phaedra '05." The viewer is placed in the front row for this special event, with the concert shown in its entirety.
It is an excellent souvenir that shows a band that remains in artistic overdrive, but can make a stop at least for one evening to reflect upon the many miles travelled."
