Tangerine Dream biography
Edgar Froese first formed The Ones in 1965. After several private concerts (notably at Salvador Dali's house), the band changes its name for Tangerine Dream.
After a first release featuring Klaus Schulze and Conrad Schnitzler "Electronic Meditation" (1969) Tangerine Dream will abandon aleatoric experimentations to concentrate on radical cosmic synth atmospheres. "Alpha Centauri" (1971) will be a landmark of the band's first explorations in electronic realms. Without a regular pulse but just with organ chords, a few manipulated guitar lines and synthesisers effects, "Alpha Centauri" remains an absolute epic and classic cosmic adventure. The following year, the contemplative "Zeit" represents a milestone, an abstract & timeless musical world. "Atem" (1973) whose line up (Froese / Franke / Baumann) will participate to TD's classic years until 1977 is an obscure and mind-blowing electronic symphony.

In 1973 start TD's classic & popular Virgin years. The captivating "Phaedra" contributes to the trademark sound of TD, with Moog arpeggio, pulsating sequencer patterns and powerful synthesisers sounds. An all time classic that launched the band's notoriety and career outside of Germany. Next to "Phaedra", "Rubycon", the live "Ricochet" and "Stratosfear" deliver ethereal and complex rhythmical soundscapes. In 1977, the band released the soundtrack of "Sorcerer" (directed by William Friedkin). A dark, moody atmospheric album (with a rather similar material used in previous albums). "Sorcerer" is also the last studio work with the classic TD line up. The vocalist Steve Joliffe and the drummer Klaus Krieger were employed for Paul Baumann's replacement and record "Cyclone". Disconcerted, the album is badly seen by the public and the critic despite that it introduced many interesting elements to TD's music. In 1979, almost in duet, Edgar Froese and Chris Franke record "Force Majeure".

In the 80s, TANGERINE DREAM knew a long and fruitful career in writing music for screen. The departure of Chris Franke in 1988 marks momentarily a hard blow to the band's musical creativity. During the 90s, TD published numerous live albums, soundtracks. Edgar Froese's son, Jerome integrates the band. They release several albums as "Melrose", "Rockoon"...

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A cheesy but enjoyable live set from Tangerine Dream. Some sections of the epic Logos would crop up here and there in other work over the 1980s - for instance, there's the beautifully dramatic bit about 20 minutes in which was memorably used in one of the most unforgettably dramatic scenes of Michael Mann's The Keep. If you cannot stand the polished, cinematic style of 1980s Tangerine Dream, it probably won't be for you, but if you do it's a treasure trove of electronic playfulness and a welcome break from the occasional sterility of their studio albums of the era. Three and a half stars.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars Considering the sheer mass of material Tangerine Dream cranked out in the 1980s between studio albums, live albums, soundtracks and archival releases, it's easy to feel swamped by it all, and there's some justification to the idea that Edgar Froese and his cohorts spread themselves too thin. Underwater Sunlight, however, is a highlight of their mid-1980s torrent of material, with Froese and Paul Haslinger trading soaring guitar solos over an impeccably composed and produced synthesiser backing. It's a bit New Age in terms of both theme and execution, but if all New Age music were like this then we'd be lucky, lucky listeners.

4 stars Tangerine Dream's stint at Virgin had seen them transition from the psychedelic electronic pioneers of their early days to the sleek, technologically advanced unit poised to absolutely glut the market with material over the course of the 1980s, particularly through their soundtrack efforts. All snark aside, though, this is one of the better Tangerine Dream albums of the 1980s; like Exit and Thief, it's very much a product of their new post-transition sound, but it's one of the more gorgeous and intricate examples of it, and the production standards have hold up well to this very day. A fascinating electronic trip, with a mysterious, awe-inspiring atmosphere - like the soundtrack to a documentary about a lost civilisation that never existed.

Review by Vinyl Connection

3 stars The album opens with '4.00 Session'. It's an epic, a pulsing, sweeping, hypnotic journey in the grand TD tradition of Phaedra or Stratosfear. But whereas the average length of a 70s Dream-side was seventeen minutes, '4.00pm Session' clocks in at almost half-an- hour. Although it is interesting and enjoyable throughout, there is a vague sense of absence, of something missing; '4.00 Session' is like a well developed draft, just waiting for a little injection of magic?a flash of melody here or a piercing guitar jab there?to elevate it to greatness. Perhaps what is missing is Edgar Froese, that's what I think as I flip the record for side two.

Two pieces here, a reworking of 'Rubycon' (17:25) that opens with some experimental sounds before settling into the classic analogue pulse. It's great, if not revelatory. Then a fair dinkum cover version, the theme from "Stranger Things". Well done, sure, but, er, why?

The second LP is a live set, recorded in concert at Schwingungen Festival+ in 2016. It is a kind of brief introduction to post-seventies Tangerine Dream, offering nicely crafted performances of a selection of TD pieces:

"Mothers of Rain" from Optical Race (1988)

"Power of the Rainbow Serpent" from Mala Kunia (2014)

"White Eagle" from the album of the same name (1982)

"Dolphin Dance" from Underwater Sunlight (1986)

"Shadow and Sun" also from Mala Kunia (2014)

It's well done, all of it. Yet somehow you feel like you are listening to a very accomplished Tangerine Dream Tribute act. In fact, that's the feel of the whole set. Something tentative about claiming the name; some missing adventurousness maybe. As a tribute, it's fine, but Particles is marking time.

Schnauss, Quaeschning and Yamane have done a sterling job of creating an homage to their fallen leader, but if they want to really breathe life into the brand name they need to be bold, to move out of the master's shadow without abandoning his legacy. They need to integrate the particles of Froese's vision into their own manifest skills. There is absolutely no doubt this trio is capable of that feat. Let's hope they give it a go.

Review by Luqueasaur

4 stars Like a snow cyborg, cold and robotic: 8/10

I'll be honest: I never liked electronic music. I have always associated it, on its entirety, to EDM - almost like bigotry -, which in turn alienated me from exploring it further. It was a shocker to discover how old and prolific electronic music is, not to mention the fact that - behold! - EDM isn't electronic music's only branch, let alone its most influential (at least on evolutionary terms). This review, then, is from the mind of a layman first introduced to this.

The first thing I noticed as I discovered TANGERINE DREAM is how groundbreaking their music was for their time. I wasn't surprised, especially after listening. I assume that, especially on their epoch, this unconventional stuff was an eerie sight. There are no riffs, no sections, no structure. This makes PHAEDRA entirely cold, robotic, experimentative; a lifeless tool. I don't see this as a problem though, because electricity is by default lifeless, and electronic music's proposition has never been to create "impacting, heartfelt melodies". However, it's not "artless" rabble like EDM. PHAEDRA has a purpose, originality, it has no life just like EDM but it's not a repetitive, meaningless bunch of artificial noises put together to make people mindlessly dance to.

PHAEDRA, generally, is cold and rather indifferent. As I said, it's experimentative, and it bases itself mostly on central "melodic pieces" (consider this a synonym of "proto-riff") sprinkled with countless effects. I'll go more specific on each track down below.

Phaedra sounds "futuristic", rushed, nervous and even dark. Look at the album cover: it is a mysterious, abstract object. Just like Phaedra's sound. It feels distant, in distraught, "uncertain". I imagined a foggy, snowy and dense forest as I listened to this. This rather creepy imagery doesn't make the song uninteresting or aversive, au contrair, it's an attraction. The first part features an up-tempo bass-y keyboard arpeggio (that consists the "melodic piece") whose limelight is often stolen by countless different electronic effects that overlap it. The second part is chilly, as if you just entered a huge, dimly lit cathedral, and you can hear the environment's quietude, the immensity's silent ambience. There is also this weird effect that sounds like a dog's high-pitched whine. Highly anxious and intense, it's a definitely interesting song.

Mysterious Semblance At The Strand Of Nightmare is symphonic and immersive. Whatever is the disturbance that made Phaedra so uneasy has been deal with, and now things are calmer. While it sounds cozier, like a choral, I enjoyed better the previous track's constant intervention of effects that broke the sound's stillness. It made it more dynamic. I also find the title rather ironic, considering the ominous image brought is not fitting for the track. "Choir of Angels In An Empty Forest", at least as I see it, kind of is.

Movements Of A Visionary focus most of its three first minutes on distorted rattling effects that sounds more often than not like a sack of pearls being stirred, chirping insects on a dense jungle, a maddened xylophone, and a locomotive's movement. The second part swaps to a more "conventional" sonority, abandoning part. It features a sweet duet of Phaedra's first section's arpeggio and a hymnal organ (shyly present in the first section). I like to imagine this section as a crystalline, translucent composition crafted on a sparkling ice castle under a boreal night. t breaks the album's hitherto electronic experimentation approach, sounding more like musical logic. Its variated, melodic and immersive experimentation convinced me to adopt it as my favorite track from the album.

Sequent C''s , for me, is in-between synthesized Japanese-esque flutes and electronic violin. It's enigmatic, meditative, faraway. I think it's too short though, it had potential on becoming something interesting.

In conclusion, I enjoyed this experience. I wasn't expecting it to be nearly as pleasing as it was, considering my - now extinct - prejudice for electronic music. I believe this is a great introduction for laypeople. Important to note is that PHAEDRA's frostiness might be harsh to embrace, so more than a single listen will be necessary. Afterwards, it'll not feel warmer, but you'll learn to enjoy the cold.

2 stars Hyperboring!

Tangerine Dream on autopilot. Not as New Wave as White Eagle, this album sees Tangerine Dream applying their by-now standard 80s formula, which involves endless repetition of drum loops, simplistic chord progressions, and synth sequences. All is not lost - the second half of the title track (but not the first half!) is decent, and there are parts of the long epic ("Sphinx Lightning") that are OK. But the overall effect is intensely boring (not sleep-inducing - if it had been there would have been more merit here, but it is difficult to get to sleep when you are frustrated by the music!). This one is slightly better than White Eagle, but not by much. I give it 2.9 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates as low 2 PA stars. Only for true fans.

2 stars Tangerine Dream goes New Wave.

With each passing album through the 1980s, Tangerine Dream would seem lower their bar further. They added drum machines on repeat, and the originality of their compositions declined. This album is their first truly New Wave album, with drum machine patterns that mimic those being played in the hit singles on the radio at the time (1982). However, unlike those radio jingles, this is still instrumental music, and the result is a constant fleeting with boredom. This album is not quite 1-Star material though - there are snippets of decent music in the long piece ("Mojave Plan") and, particularly, "Convention of the 24", which raise it just enough. But I can't sit through this album all the way anymore. Unless you love early-1980s new wave songs with no singing and stretched out for what seems like hours, I would avoid this album, which is sad because I really love their earlier work, which I find very original and inventive. I give this album 2.8 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which is low 2 PA stars.

3 stars Another live TD winner.

Another live album showing Tangerine Dream to be great live improvisors and composers, this features four long pieces. While each of the four are musically compelling, Tangerine Dream are starting to use drum machines to a greater extent and they infuse parts of the tracks here with them. This tour occurred shortly after they recorded the album Stratosphear, which featured more traditional chord progressions and time signatures, and those creep a bit (but only a bit) into some of these compositions. While both "Cherokee Lane" and "Desert Dream" are great virtually the whole way through, I find parts of "Monolight" and (particularly) "Coldwater Canyon" to be not sufficiently musical, and have to skip those parts. But the rest of those tunes are still very good, and on the whole I would recommend making this a part of your Tangerine Dream collection (definitely better than Stratosphear and most studio albums that would follow). I give it 7.0 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to 3 PA stars.

2 stars The first disappointing TD album.

Although recorded in between two excellent live albums (Ricochet, and Encore), this studio album is the first disappointing release from Tangerine Dream, and unfortunately set the pattern for a series of lesser-quality albums that would follow in the late 70s and 1980s. It is on this album they start using patterned drum sequences, and standard chord progressions on some of the tunes. The title track is the worst offender. Unlike on their previous, hypnotic compositions, the repetitive rhythms here are dull, and the chord progressions are simplistic and second-rate. While the other tracks are better, instead of hypnotic they border on simply boring. The best track, and the only one that stands up to repeated listening, is the short "The Big Sleep in Search of Hands", which features a flute lead and soft piano, and a classy slow synth lead. It is telling here that the best and only lasting tune involves mainly standard instruments, instead of TD's signature synths, but such was the problem that would be faced by Tangerine Dream going forward - by the 1980s their electronic music would become too straight and uninventive to be worth listening to. While Stratosfear is still better than any of their 1980s output, it pales in comparison to Rubycon, Phaedra or Ricochet. I give this 5.4 out of 10, which is in the high 2 PA stars.

While their early studio albums are key classics, I think Tangerine Dream were just as creative playing live on stage. This album is a good example of how well these three musicians can improvise in creative ways to create new music, and also shows that while the studio was an important instrument for them, they were not dependent on it. Indeed, I like their live albums better than their studio albums during the 1980s. Whereas their 80s studio albums come across as mostly stale, they were still able to sound original live on stage. Ricochet is an early live album, sandwiched between the wonderful Rubycon and the disappointing Stratosphear studio albums. Not surprisingly, the music shows a mix of both influences (the unstructured groundbreaking soundscapes of Rubycon, and the more structured drum-machined Stratosphear). But while there is some drum machine on Ricochet, it is not nearly as egregious as would be found on later studio albums, and the synth sequencers still provide the main structure. This album contains two long instrumentals (like Rubycon), which provide some novel music and sounds and flow quite well (apart for one short drum-machine section). I think it is an essential part of their catalogue, tying for second- or third- place alongside Phaedra. I give it 8.0 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to low 4 PA stars.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to E&O Team for the last updates
