3 stars Tangerine Dream's Encore is a tour document showing the long, involved, ambitious compositional structures featured on the band's 1977 USA tour. However, I can't put it on a level anywhere near the likes of Zeit, their previous double album following a one-song-per- side structure. The fact is that whilst all the music here is very pleasant, and there's a decent enough Edgar Froese guitar solo thrown in on Coldwater Canyon, the music here is in no way as memorable or haunting as their classic material, or even their better studio albums from this period. Personally, I just don't really see Tangerine Dream as a live band - their approach to electronic music demands the crystal clarity that in 1977 was only accessible in a studio. Ah well.
