4 stars With the previous album Cyclone, Force Majeure is the most progressive Tangerine Dream album: many hard rock guitar solos, acoustic guitars, drums and cello. When you think about it, it is very weird for a band like that to have drums! But it works very well. They are only 2 keyboardists: Edgar Froese and Chris Franke. The album has many intense floating keyboards, very melodic ones and finally there are excellent melodic sequencers. Globally, it sounds a bit like Jean Michel Jarre (Oxygene, Equinoxe). It has some strange and psychedelic parts. The numerous melodic parts are really catchy and addictive, and they were, AGAIN, the official music of TV News here in Quebec, in the early 80's. Apparently, there is something in the track "Through metamorphic rocks" that corresponds to the odd sound of equipment during a happened failure. Force Majeure really prepares Tangerine Dream to their new modern sound of the first half of the 80's, started with the next album Tangram.

Rating: 4.5 stars
