4 stars Tangerine Dream, for me, after Hyperborea just completely lost "it". Throughout the rest of the 80's and all of the 90's they have released some pretty AWEFUL albums. There are about 5 albums or so throughout the time I've dated above that I do like. Finally, after 24 years, Madcap's Flaming Duty, a TD album that I actually enjoy just as much as their earlier work. Vocals for many TD fans seem to be a problem, and well, for some it still is, but I do enjoy them, Chris Hausl (the singer on the album) has a very powerful yet soothing voice. As for the music on the album, this is the closest to new age that Tangerine Dream has ever gotten to. New age seem to scare a lot of people, because all they think about is "EW Yanni", but don't be scared, as its been shown with this album, some new age is quite good. Standout tracks for me would be "Astrophel & Stella", "Shape My Sin", "The Divorce", "Lake Of Pontchartrain", "One Hour Of Madness", "Hymn To Intellectual Beauty" and "Solution Of All Problems".
