5 stars This is one of the most helium-boosted electronic albums I have ever heard, maybe with the Tangerine Dream's "Tangram" album! Actually, this record surely gave the perfect pace for the new orientation of the Tangerine Dream's sound of the early 80's, immortalized with the arrival of "Tangram". Many floating keyboards and electric guitar solos are obviously reminiscent of the "Force Majeure" album. Absolutely DYNAMIC & progressive New Age not suited for relaxation, this record is the best of the Froese's albums. Needless to say "Stuntman" has numerous similitudes with the "Tangram" album. Shall I add "Stuntman" has some of the Jean Michel Jarre's elements, especially on his 2 first albums "Equinoxe" and "Oxygene", like the ultra slow wah-wah effect applied on the VERY intensely floating streams of keyboards, or like the very melodic & floating keyboards arrangements for instance on the last part of "Drunken Mozart in the desert". I like the violent & sustained bottom peak + highly floating keyboards in the debut of "Dali-esque sleep fuse": this is the REAL "Tangram" sound! Notice on this track the impressive helicopter emulation! All the tracks are excellent!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
