5 stars This album was a risky business for Tangerine Dream. Exploration of a progressive rock territory plus their typical Berlin School avant grade experiments mixed together that was enough for many hard core fans of electronic music. But the band really tried to be different. Their previous Virgin Years albums were excellent but when Baumann left the band the guys decided tu use a different formula, as an experiment probably or they wanted some attention from prog fans too. I don't know. So they recorded Cyclone, album that is beyond anything ever done in both generes. I mean seriously, even vocals that appear for the first time on TD record are different than anything you've ever heard. Some parts are sung in an unknown language like it was a spell or something. First track is an avant grade progressive rock, second one mixes prog rock and electronic music, the last one is an uptempo Berlin School extravaganza that lasts over 20 minutes. What an amazing record Cyclone is. And it wasn't their last word. I think all of their Virgin Years albums are excellent. But this one is the most original of them.
