Prog Reviewer
3 stars "Wavelength" is a little-known Sci-Fi 1983 movie. The soundtrack is an assembly of various short melodic tunes, whose duration varies from 1 to 4 minutes. The music itself features mainly compositions unreleased in studio albums. Only synth sequencer passages from their recent albums are borrowed, however with different melodies than the studio originals.

The best passage of the disc is "Mojave End". A catchy tune with sound and style similar to "Mojave Plan" from "White Eagle", but entirely new. The other tracks displays various ambiances: slow, dynamic, spacey, intriguing... For example, "Breakout" re-uses sounds from "Convention of the 24", but is more dynamic. Transitions may sometimes be a little abrupt, but there is no real weak track on the record.

One of TANGERINE DREAM's best soundtracks from this period. The band succeeded at composing mostly new material. Fans of the Schmoelling-era of the band can give this record a try.

Modrigue | 3/5 |
