3 stars Without any kind of high expectations but totally open to its offerings, I waited for this 2016, once a Tangerine Dream's "dreamer" (1972-77), Peter Baumann's fifth solo project "Machines of Desire".

Good ideas that never seem to take off. Its music composition, although identifiable, sounds dated, a bit too much, as to move along its own comfortable zones to the point of predictability, which may be the reason why it scarcely goes beyond those launching pad borders.

As for TD's hard core fans this release will throw them back in time to those early days, less the experimental side, the good side of this is that it delivers here and there some nice and catchy melody lines (i.e."Ordinary Wonder', track 5).

As for me, eventhough it has some "nice moments", its predictable approach and its dated sound, as its "fear of heights", will hardly rate above the 3 stars mark, therefore it will be easily lost in the crowd of so-so progressive electronic albums.

2.9 PA stars.
