5 stars After the exit of primary member Peter Baumann, Tangerine Dream creates a couple of albums with a real drummer and one of them even has lyrics. While both Force Majeure and Cyclone are very good , especially the former, TD reverts back to their glory days and becomes a band with three keyboardists again. They even go back to 2 side long tracks. but that is where the comparison ends. Johannes Schmoelling arrives and immediately his stamp on Tangram is unmistakeable. Almost gone is the icy spacey ness of Phaedra, and in comes a scheen, along with a more melodic soundscape. Brighter, upbeat and a bit catchy in spots, Tangerine Dream hits a sweet spot between space music and instrumental pop/ rock.

I really enjoy this album and rate it a weak 5 star album. It's the best of the Franke, Froese, Schmoelling lineup.
