Underwater Sunlight

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
Underwater Sunlight was the first album Paul Haslinger recorded with Tangerine Dream and his presence is immediately felt. With Haslinger, the group relied more heavily on strict structures and jarring compositional flourishes, which is only appropriate, since he came directly from a classical background. The group hadn't quite figured out how to fully incorporate these techniques into their music, but the results on Underwater are nevertheless fascinating.

    UNDERWATER SUNLIGHT

    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''

    An artistic and mellow album from a great New Age band

    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.
