4 stars Very good relaxing soundtrack from Tangerine Dream's synthetic period of early 80s. The Keep is a Michael Mann's movie from 1983. The music here alternates smooth atmospheric pieces and more dramatic sequences.

It opens with Puer Natus Est Nobis, an enchanting choir song superposed on synthetizer waves, unusual for Tangerine Dream. The disc contains other odd tracks, such as Arx Allemand which sounds sometimes as Wendy Carlos music ad Canzone which features strange vocals. But the rest of the record is top quality electronic act ! Ancient Powerplant, The Silver Seal and Weird Village are pure mysterious athmospheric ambients. Among other things are featured excerpts from the superbly trippy Logotypes suite of 1982. These are The Night In Romania, Sign In The Dark and the ending Heritage Survival. Most tracks cannot be found on other official releases and manage sometimes to re-discover the Phaedra era music. Froese's guitar work also quite rocks on The Challenger's Arrival and Wardays Sunrise. All that proves that the band was really creative at this time !

One of their darkest and best soundtrack ! Highly recommended for Tangerine Dream and electronic music fans !

Modrigue | 4/5 |
