3 stars Underwater Sunlight, being from the '80s, is of course plagued by the cheesy new-age effects of electronic music from that era. Fortunately, this album actually integrates those elements decently with remaining slightly progressive. Obviously, this album isn't going to be anything like Phaedra or Rubycon, or even Cyclone or White Eagle. Underwater Sunlight is still commercialized '80s new-age music, with corny super-powered guitar playing to match (sometimes sound like rejected Top Gun anthems).

The spacey, cosmic, and dark atmospheric qualities of Tangerine Dream's classic material is long gone. However, for being as cheesy and poppy as this album is, it's still very convincing of an underwater atmosphere. So, that is the positive remark on this album: convincing enough underwater atmosphere. If that's what you're looking for, then this album is for you. But be forewarned, this isn't the dark, pulsing Tangerine Dream that is loved by most.
