3 stars 1979 was a tough time for electronic sound in general and especially for Peter Baumann following his departure from Tangerine Dream. This is not a bad album at all but it does tend to lean towards an ' easy listening' category. At the same period there were other awful artists like Romanelli ( Connecting Flight ) trying similar ventures with perhaps more commercial success. I am happy to say that Trans Harmonic Nights rises well above commercial baiting and there are some well delivered songs that will catch your attention. They are in the main 3 to 6 minutes long so don't go expecting any TD like comparisons. There is no mistaking the connection to that master group from Germany. Highlights for me are the whole album but individual numbers worth noting are the beautiful ' This Day', the hypnotic ' Chasing the Dream', ' The Third Site' and the haunting ' Dance at Dawn'. A good album overall and I would recommend to those Tangerine Dream fans, particularly from 1985 onwards.
