3 stars Coming from a self proclaimed hater of live albums, 'Logos' is one of those albums that uses a slow drum machine that the band are slavishly tied down to throughout its duration. You'll feel like giving them a good kick, just to get their sorry asses into gear.

Unfortunately it doesn't really happen. Tangerine Dream sound hamstrung and crippled by the technology that they've promoted throughout the decade. However, as soon as those damn drum machines stop - they let themselves go a little bit, creating something far more interesting. Such a pity then that it's all too infrequent an occurrence.

All spontaneity is lost leaving a sterile and clinical sound which probably sounded great at the time, but now, in 2012 sounds staid and uninteresting.

The second part sacks the drums for the first half but the band still sound like they're playing to a metronome which is annoying as it is painfully obvious that they are doing so. Things get pretty cheesy 12 minutes into this track with every early 80's cliche you can imagine being rammed down your throat. It's almost like listening to an episode of 'Miami Vice'

Still... I'm a real sucker for sequencers, of which their are plenty and it's for that reason only that 'Logos' scrapes a three star rating by the skin of its teeth. In truth it probably deserves two...

Tangerine Dream were hoist by their own petard. And far, far worse was to follow...
