2 stars OK this opus is slighty better than the avearge album of the Tangerine Dream for the past 20 years. But what ? Does it makes a great album of it ? No way. There is absolutly no departure from the musical canevas found in the last decade issues of the band (but can it be called a band anymore ?). Pick a random 30 seconds sample of Machu Picchu, put it in a hat with random samples of Autumn In Hiroshima and Blue Dawn, pick one and tell me from wich labum, ah, ah ! No seriously, Underwater Sunlight was the last great album of Tangerine Dream, followed by a rapid decay up down to Tyranny Of Beauty, a fall in oblivion n the techno years and a barely better etheral period from 2000 on, all this with some too rare great tracks such as Comet's Figure Head in Mars Polaris.

Nothing to rejoyce, TD is brain dead.
