3 stars Exit is often criticized for being less progressive overall than Tangerine Dream's previous efforts, which is true, but that doesn't mean that this album is particularly horrible. I feel the same way about this album as I do about Goblin's Phenomena soundtrack, and the two really are kind of similar - they've stayed at their progressive roots, but have ventured slightly into the pop domain in an effort to appeal more to the mainstream crowd. Again, that doesn't mean this is a bad album.

The sound of the '80s affected a lot of great progressive groups, and it's definitely apparent on Exit, which consists of much shorter tracks than usual on a Tangerine Dream album a with far less progression throughout. "Kiew Mission" and "Remote Viewing" are the only tracks on Exit that really have any progression in the song structures, and the latter really sounds like a missing track from Phaedra. The other four tracks are simple, short, individual tracks that create a decent electronic listening experience, but doesn't have the same strength as any of the albums prior to this one.

This seriously isn't a terrible album, and is only slightly less quality in structure than the best of Tangerine Dream's output with an added hint of the '80s.
