3 stars Tangerine Dream's last release on the Virgin record label and a good one at that.This is a real slow burner of an album.The first time I heard it I was underwhelmed but the subtle ideas come through after a few listens.The first peice 'No Mans Land' is very hypnotic with minimal structure.Not a bad opener.Next up 'Hyperborea' is classic TD with it's dark atmosphere and lush synths.The album is worth getting for this peice alone.'Cinnamon Road' is a cute little ditty that contrasts nicely with the previous track.The album is completed by 'Sphynx Lightning' a lovingly crafted peice of music that is never forced but evolves naturally like teh best TD stuff.Overall as an electronic album this is worth 5stars and must be one of TD's best BUT this is a prog site and will prog fans like this? If you are into 'New Age' music like say Mark Isham then you will love this.If you like instrumental music that is more prog based in style like say Camel then this may leave you cold.I give it 3 stars therefore.
