4 stars So my final breakthrough into electronic prog music is happening now. I knew that Tangerine Dream are good, but after Alpha Centauri, I was worried if it also means good for me. Now, it seems like they matured. Melody, I always look for melody and Cherokee Lane has it. Not only have, but isn't losing any of prog-electro quality (as I understand it) . Taking it as a long composition (which seems like trademark for TD), it's long track run. There's basic melody and song slowly comes, slowly varies from it. It goes for 16 minutes, in fact without bigger changes, but as a whole, it sounds, persuasively. Heart grabbing, piano-like start of Monolight, with very soft sound really attract your attention. But of course, that's not the main course. Later, said Alpha Centauri like sounds and "music" came, slowly coming from piano intro. But what came in around 4 minute, synth solo. I know midi music, very used in games of early 90s. This is exactly same music as it was experimentally used 15 years before. And that's it. I don't mind that it sounds sometimes like AC. It's wrapped in human compatible package (it's listenable, pleasure, not horror), because I'm follower of idea that you can experiment a little bit. Even a lot, but show raw things isn't always best way to do it. And this song is perfect example of this philosophy. This one is more variable, explorer way, instead of first one's careful style. Expect even melancholic melody in the end. But as we get to second part, things starts to be little same. Again pattern from first song, but differs in final part. And last one is more like average.

4(-) and I have to thank you TD for allowing me to get aboard.
