4 stars If you want to find out what TANGERINE DREAM were like at their most popular, this is the place to start.

'Dream Sequence' samples all the albums from their Virgin years, with none of the dross that followed. Sadly, there's also none of the excellent early 'Pink years' but their inclusion would have changed the feel of this compilation (as well as being contractually impossible). The choice of tracks is almost impeccable and the edits judicious. Of course, they ought to have included the whole first ten powerful minutes of 'Phaedra' and not the pathetic edit we get, but with compilations no two people ever agree.

Getting 'Ricochet Part 2', 'Cloudburst Flight', 'Tangram Set 1' and parts of 'Logos' is itself enough to justify this purchase for those who have a hole in their collection where TANGERINE DREAM should be. Even the few selections from soundtrack albums sound surprisingly better when interspersed with other tracks. More from 'Hyperborea', perhaps, but this is nit-picking.

This is a very good way to find out if you need this sort of music in your life.
