AllMusic Review by

Despite the tacky marketing gimmick behind Area 51: The Roswell Incident -- an attempt to cash in on the late-'90s UFO fad by releasing a compilation of electronic space-rock under a title that alludes to UFOs -- it's actually not a bad collection, hitting many of the genre's most seminal bands, as well as several newer ambient acts, over two budget-priced discs. Included are tracks by, among others, Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind, Gong, Amon Düül 2, Chrome, Kraftwelt, Kraftwerk's Yamo, and Can bassist Holger Czukay.
