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"...

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.

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.

4 stars The Quintessential Tangerine Dream!

Their best album - very close to 5 Stars! In the 1980s Tangerine Dream would become cheesy, but on this album they are at their most inventive. They use a large swath of electronic instruments (the original analog synths) but also guitars, melotrons, and traditional instruments played through various effects (delay, etc) to produce a highly original and musical album. While they established the basis for their sound on the previous "Phaedra" album, it is on this one that they excel. The result is an original mix of psychedelic soundscape, haunting and emotive , futuristic repetitive synth sequences, and experimental musique concrette, but without the limitations of any kind of pre-set structure (no time signatures, key signatures or chord progressions to worry about). It works exceptionally well, taking you on a sound voyage that is like no other. Later on, Tangerine Dream would start using drum machines, chord progressions, and structured melody lines, which sometimes worked and sometimes did not, and in doing so lose some of the magic of unstructured but highly musical soundscape exploration that this album characterises. Highly recommended. I give this 8.8 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which is just shy of my criteria for 5 stars. So, at the top end of 4 PA stars.

2 stars This is one of the many movie soundtracks released by Tangerine Dream in the '80s. Actually Christopher Franke was still in duo with Edgar Froese.

I haven't seen the movie, but I guess it was quite a sad story. The music is extremely melodic, with no rhythm at all. Apart of few tracks like in example "The Hospital Room" whose first half reminded me of Camel's RAIN DANCES, there's very few in this album that scores only 33 minutes in length, also considering that some tracks contain reprises and quotes from the main theme.

"More Pills" is another 1 minute track which could have been extended, but unfortunately it remains just a sort of false start. I mean that taken one by one they are decent, but none of them can be remembered after the first listen, if not for the title track which has several reprises.

This music was likely appropriate for a movie which, I have read, is about a nurse in a war zone getting involved in drugs. From a progressive point of view it's absolutely non-essential. Not the worst thing released by TD in that period, but it can be forgotten in the huge production of this kind in these years.

Forgettable.

Review by Scorpius

4 stars There are two different types of Tangerine Dream fans. Those who despise this album and those who believe it is a masterpiece. I happen to fall very close to the latter of these two. This album is very underrated, but I do see where those who hate it are coming from. Certain tracks fall short, holding down the rest of the album from critical acclaim. Lets get to it, shall we?

The album begins with "Cold Bent Sidewalk", a 13 minute epic that introduced vocals into Tangerine Dream's sound. This track was actually my introduction into the band, so I might be biased here, but I think it's genius. Many people criticize the vocals for being uninspired and bland. I honestly don't understand where this is coming from. I always thought the track had riveting, inspired, beautiful vocals that blend with the song perfectly. The vocals on this track and the next are one of the main reasons this album divides TD fans so much. Although the vocals are endlessly criticized, there is no denying how epic and beautiful the instrumental part of this track is. Synthesizer and moog arpeggios intertwine with some almost Jethro Tull-like flute. Its simple, its genius, and most importantly, its Tangerine Dream.

The next track is "Rising Runner Missed by Endless Sender". This is the track that for me, holds this album back from 5 stars. The vocals are grating and repetitive, and so is the music. The keyboard arpeggios are back, but this time all they do is repeat, with a change in pitch every minute or so. Thank God this track is short, or I might have had to give this album a lower rating.

The final track is "Madrigal Meridian", a 20 minute epic closer. No more vocals. Happy? This track is your classic Tangerine Dream epic. Epic tracks like these, at least for me, are generally hard to dissect, so I wont even try. Let me just say that if you are a fan of the older TD sound found on Rubycon and most of Phaedra, you will love this track. Had it been on a more respected TD album, this track would get the much needed respect and love it deserves.

1 stars Might work for nature shops...

First let's define the "ambient" mention from the title. Both old fans expecting a come-back / revisit of early TANGERINE DREAM's "kozmische" material, like "Zeit" or "Atem", and more recent electronica lovers eager for 90's quality ambient works in the vein of THE ORB, THE FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON or early AUTECHRE will surely be disappointed. Instead, "Ambient Monkeys" mainly consists in a continuous mixture of more or less new-age TD from the nineties, noodling, natural sonorities and animal sounds. Sometimes, attentive listeners will recognize a known title...

The point is, this environmental soundtrack was only used by the band before starting concerts to warm audiences up. These pieces were initially not meant to be released. However, on "public demand" by the fans, the Froeses finally made this available. So who is to blame?

In conclusion, was it worth it? Not really... The "music" will rarely catch the ears of both classic and 90's TANGERINE DREAM lovers. Only for fans of background ambient wanting to sonically dress their vegetal lounge or bathroom with a "nature" soundtrack...

4 stars The best "Dream Mixes" volume

Definitively the one to get. For the first time in the series, "The Past Hundred Moons" carries proudly its name: Going back deeper in the band's history to propose remixes of both modern and classic TANGERINE DREAM from the Schmoelling era and "Encore". 2 tracks are rearranged versions of the titles of the same names from the 1999 albums "Mars Polaris" and "Great Wall Of China", 6 are revisits from 1977-1984 studio or live TD, and 1 is a new composition by Edgar Froese. Recorded in 2000 and 2001, incorporating nineties' big-beat, drum'n'bass and even jungle approaches, these remixes are really refreshing and some even manage to bring a new youth to the source material!

The first half of the disc is nearly perfect. Longest track of the record, "Prima Time" is based on "Silver Scale", the first part of a 20 minutes suite often played live at concerts in 1980-1981, but not officially released until 1994 on the "Tangents" box set. Opening the album with such a confidential piece in TD's catalogue is quite audacious. Spacey and varied, the result is very cool. "Astrophobia (Red Supernova Mix)" keeps the threatening atmosphere of the original from "Mars Polaris". Its jungle beats and futuristic sonorities take you to a dark voyage into unknown spatial territories, while the last part is rather peaceful and contemplative. Then comes the best passage, "Stereolight". An intelligent, dynamic, well-crafted revisited fusion between the iconic pulsating pre-trance "Monolight" and the ending of "Desert Dream", both from the 1977 live album "Encore". Just listen, this track almost brings another youth to these vintage titles! Great, easily one of the best "Dream Mix" ever! "Diamonds and Dust" uses the well-known "Diamond Diary" frenetic sequence from the soundtrack album "Thief". On the contrary, this new version doesn't manage to offer enough variations for 9 minutes. A bit too long and repetitive.

Located in the middle of the disc, "Blue Spears" is the only novelty of the record. Composed by Edgar Froese, this soothing ambient piece turns a bit new-age and can remind at times the orientation taken by the band in the late 80's. Not too bad, but not remarkable either. "Meng Tian (Smart Machine Remix)" is a boosted-up version from a title of the "Great Wall Of China" soundtrack. The ambiance is faithful to the denomination, punchy, robotic and rocking! "Girl on the Stairs" is the English literal translation for "Das Mädchen auf der Treppe". The delicate "White Eagle" track was renamed so and slightly reworked for the corresponding German TV series "Tatort" episode. This time, the remix contains cool variations of the main theme. The disc ends with two concert classics from the Schmoelling era. "The Spirit of the Czar" is based on the first half of "Poland", peace and zenitude. The ender, "The Comfort Zone", revisits the last third of "Logos Part 1" last third. Not the best remix here but still spacey and pleasant.

"The Past Hundred Moons" represents what is expected from a "Dream Mixes" volume: Rearrangements of modern and vintage TANGERINE DREAM, studio, live and soundtracks, good choice of classic and lesser-known pieces ("Silver Scale", "Desert Dream"). Even if the 90's electronic sonorities are a few years late and despite a few lengthy passages, the music is overall convincing and refreshing.

Give it a try, even if you don't like post-Franke TANGERINE DREAM. You might be surprised. Very recommended to fans of TD's Schmoelling era, but also to those who grew up with the nineties' electronic beats. By the way, "Dream Mixes 3" can be also be a way for the youngster generations to discover what was this German pioneering band about...

3 stars Finally embracing the nineties

3.5 stars

Least worthy of its name, this "Dream Mixes" release is nevertheless one of the most interesting of the series. Contrarily to the first double compilation, this second volume features only two 1997 remixes from TD's recent albums, "Turn of the Tides" and "Goblins Club". All the other tracks are new compositions, 4 by Jerome Froese, and only 1 by Edgar.

After ten years of mediocre studio material where the band was searching for renewal, "Dream Mixes 2 - Timesquare" arrives as the long awaited disc, the one that can bring hope to the fans. At last, Froese and son are finally taking confidence on the 90's by (progressively) giving up the new-age orientation taken since the end of the 80's and adapting their music to the big-beat / techno / jungle drums and sonorities, while making the TANGERINE DREAM style evolving. Everything is not perfect yet, but this almost-studio opus do come as a welcomed surprise.

"Mobocaster" is a rearranged version of "Twilight Brigade" from "Turn of the Tides". An average track, relaxing but cheesy at times, which is not very surprising considering the source album. The spacey ambient "Jungle Jacula" contains a middle-eastern-ish ambiance and female vocalizations. A pleasant composition that can remind early FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON works. "Towards the Evening Star (Blue Gravity Mix)" is of course a remix of "Towards The Evening Star", the best track from TD's last album back then, "Goblins Club". Its big-beat drums and additional variations render the title even more cosmic. Overall a pretty cool remix. Concerning "Digital Sister", its jungle and trance atmospheres make it rather enjoyable.

However, the best novelty here is undoubtedly "Pixel Pirates". A lively and dreamy voyage aboard a spaceship between the planets! Considering the release period, this title foreshadows TANGERINE DREAM's next studio album, the good "Mars Polaris", and - with some imagination and more upbeat drums - could have been featured on the PlayStation WipeOut soundtracks. The rest of the record is more a mixed bag. Longest track of the record, "Culpa Levis" is also the only new composition by Edgar Froese here. Using female vocalizations again, these 10 minutes aren't bad but not really remarkable either, whereas the title track alternates nice and soapy passages.

For sure, "Dream Mixes 2" still contains some boring moments, but much fewer than on the previous releases. The middle of the album is the main interest. At last, TD's ten years dry inspiration period (since 1987) is coming to an end, Froese and son begin to takes the right direction.

One of their best nineties' releases, and, if I can say so, studio album, with "Mars Polaris" of course. Recommended if you enjoy, or want to discover worthwhile post-classic TANGERINE DREAM.

— First review of this album —
2 stars The source is beginning to dry up...

2.5 stars

Already the fifth volume of the "Dream Mixes" series. What "historical" compositions could possibly be revisited this time? And how many novelties? Well, believe it or not, whereas the precedent volumes featured some new material, all nine tracks from "DM V" are remixes! As the 1974-1984 albums studio and live material was quite reused in the previous opuses, Jerome Froese had dig up some TD's 80's soundtracks to find out something to remixed. Don't get me wrong, some of these movie scores are enjoyable, but they certainly did not meet the heights of the Baumann and Schomelling periods standards...

The ambient "The Return Of The Time" borrows parts from "Rubycon Part 1". A little deception, as the result is rather soft and never really lifts off. The intent of revisiting the golden-era material is great but... Why not a full reinterpretation of the originals, such as "Phaedra of Nottingham" or "Stratosfear '95"? All the next tracks will faithfully follow their source tune. "Flow Paths" sees a pleasant version of "Exit" enhanced with nice additions and sci-fi sonorities. "Scope Of Mind" is based on the first sequenced part of "Horizon", from the great "Poland" live double-album. The drums make this remix quite lively, although a bit lengthy. Same goes for "Meshwork", a revisit of "Flock" from "Das M'dchen auf der Treppe", more known reworked as "Flock Of Bluebirds" in the "Antique Dreams" compilation. Cool, but the rather non-melodic and repetitive original tune makes it difficult for a 6 minutes long remix to maintain interest. Now... Were there no better tune in the huge TANGERINE DREAM patrimony to choose than the black sheep of the icy synthetic 1982 album "White Eagle", a.k.a. "Midnight In Tula"? I can understand that this pre-video-game-ish melody was fun and kind of iconic in its own way back in the days, but the melody is quite irritating. "Code To Zero" is a little more bearable, mainly due to its retro-futuristic and robotic ambiance, sounding less dated. I admit I can stand more this remix than the original one, however it does not really change my general opinion about it.

Another curious choice is "Polar Circles", based on "Running Out Of Time" from 1989 "Miracle Mile" soundtrack. To be honest, the original track was not really worthwhile. This new track contains a few digressions, but it doesn't prevent the overall from sounding rather flat. On the contrary, with "Alien Sitcom", Jerome made a justified pick by digging up "Mojave End Title" from the good "Wavelength" soundtrack. Despite little messy moments, this intelligent remix also features nice rocking passages. "Hinterland" reuses "Horizon" again, this time the frenetically-sequenced ending part. Easily the most dynamic track of the disc with its big-beat drums, trance-like sections and some middle-eastern sonorities too. the ender, "Mombasa (Touareg Remix)", is simply based on... "Mombasa" from "Booster III", composed by Edgar Froese, and just released 1 year earlier. Definitely ambient and floating with its female vocalizations, this composition is enjoyable but not varied enough.

This fifth opus clearly shows the Dream Mixes formula beginning to falter. The choice of the source material is sometimes questionable and some worthwhile tracks are not fully reinterpreted. Nonetheless, the most important point is that, in 2010, the style is still stuck in the nineties, whereas the then current electronic music scene showed important evolutions during the 21st Century's first decade. TANGERINE DREAM's 1970-1984 material now deserves more modern reinterpretations.

Give it a try if you want, "DM V" has its moments after all, but I'd rather recommend Dream Mixes 3 or 4...
