5 stars Itīs not strange to be a Tangerine Dream but not like all their records or even periods. Who owns their entire catalogue of more than 100 (!!!) records? Personally, Iīve listened to most of their discography and some of their records have nothing to do with others (usually, soundtracks or some of their latest records are less interesting than their 70īs and 80īs production). So, there are some people who prefer their first and more "avant- garde" records, others like their 1974-1979 or "classic" period...

Personally, I consider that some their best efforts were made when Johannes Schmoelling joined the band. He gave a more melodic side, while keeping sometimes also the "cosmic" essence. So, for me, the best Tangerine Dream record is "Logos", an album which could be the perfect soundtrack for an astral voyage! Itīs music for the mind and for the spirit, something mysterious and magical that itīs not easy to find even in other Tangerine Dream releases.

Itīs a shame that a lot of people consider Tangerine Dream as a mere "new age" band, or simply "electronic", because some of their records are far from being cold and have more "life" in them, not just peaceful tunes or robotic patterns...

Itīs quite interesting to notice that most of their best records were recorded live: "Encore", "Poland", "Livemiles" or this "Logos" are probably my favourite TD records, along with others recorded in studio like "White Eagle" or "Underwater Sunlight". "Logos" is the perfect balance between all the best sides of Tangerine Dream: atmosphear, mystery, melody, original rhythms and warm synth sounds and textures.
