4 stars "Sohoman" is the first half of TD's 1982 Sydney concert. It contains material from the corresponding recent releases "White Eagle" and "Logos", and 2 improvised compositions not offically available before. While not explicitly mentionned, the source tracks have been overdubbed / tangentized. For this review, I will focus on the music only, not on the method used by the band.

"Convention of the 24" and "White Eagle" are good renditions of their studio versions from "White Eagle". "Logos Part 1" features indeed only the end of the first half of the corresponding track of the official live release.

Now for the novelties. "Ayers Rock" is the main interest of the record, it features fast energic pulsating sequences with "Commodore 64" chip-like passages. I do enjoy the electronic dark, tense atmosphere of this improvisation. On the opposite, "Bondy Parade" offers a much more lighter ambiance, as if you have escaped from danger and you were now driving towards sunlight. This tune could have well suited the epilog of an action movie. The name is taken from "Bondi Beach" in Sydney.

Although short, I recommend this release for 80's TANGERINE DREAM fans or for those who just want to discover new tracks. If you want to go deeper, the entire performance without overdubs is now released on the Bootmoon series as "Sydney - February 22nd 1982".

Modrigue | 4/5 |
