Here we have the first TD album with Paul Haslinger from 1886. It's quite good, I should say and to my mind it's one of the few albums that are still interesting, made before their music became more commercial and ''sweet''. It should appeal to both fans of ''classic'' TD sound (like me) and to the lovers of the ''mature'' Tangerine Dream. There are still cool Franke sequences (like on ''Dolphin Dance'', for instance), but the music has become more melodic. By the way, If you like this album you should check out Franke's solo works, such as ''Pacific Coast Highway'' and ''London Concert''Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There are different kinds of fans of Tangerine Dream music, so to understand my reviews, you must understand my tastes. I prefer their later works, with songs that are harmonious, rhythmic, lyrical, and ''pretty.'' Their first excellent album for me was Underwater Sunlight. You might find (by reading lots of reviews) that the people who love TDream's early work dislike the later albums; people who like the later albums don't like the early stuff. I am the 2nd type. Of my 22 or so TDream albums so far, the greatest ones (in approximate order) are: Le Parc, Underwater Sunlight, Lily on the Beach, Private Music, Optical Race, Melrose, Goblins' Club. OK albums are: Tang-go, Force Majeure, Exit. Unpleasant albums are: Turn of the Tides, Rockoon, Stratosfear, Phaedra, Atem, Alpha Centauri, Elect. Meditation, or anything else pre '83. Underwater Sunlight is great! Especially Scuba Scuba. In Song of the Whale, TDream uses a musical dissonance to make sure you remain awake - hope you don't mind! TDream fans who share my tastes MUST try out Patrick O'Hearn.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
