1 stars Snippets of the new straightforward TANGERINE DREAM sound, culled from the post-'Force Majeure' era and recycled from various sources, make up this soundtrack. The result is a cross between MIKE OLDFIELD at his 80s blandest and a rather amateurish TD mash-up. It feels like EDGAR FROESE has turned his creativity ray on this stuff for all of ten seconds. It's pleasant, mid-tempo, rather dancey music that simply doesn't engage the listener. But then, few instrumental movie soundtracks do.

'Beach Theme' is not bad, though it doesn't need to be so space-fillingly reprised. 'Igneous' is a lift from 'Thru Metamorphic Rocks' and works far better in the context of 'Force Majeure'. The world - and you - simply do not need this, or any TD soundtrack.

Not horrible in itself, but its very blandness is frightening given the sheer intensity of TANGERINE DREAM at their best.
