4 stars Recorded in the wake of the disastrous reception of Cyclone - which, to be fair, kind of deserved the critical mauling it received - Force Majeure attains better results than that album. Jettisoning Cyclone's frankly substandard vocalist, the album continues the band's experiments with reintegrating acoustic instruments and rock techniques into their compositions but does so with a bit more taste and care. The acoustic instruments are used to add texture to what are fundamentally still progressive electronic compositions as opposed to prog rock opuses - a clear improvement over the compositions on Cyclone, which weren't sure whether they were one thing or the other. In short, this album is everything its predecessor should have been, and presents another excellent set of Tangerine Dream mood pieces.
