Review by ZowieZiggy
3 stars I think that the biggest mistake from TD is to have called this album "Phaedra 2005".

Lots of devoted fans (hi Rico!) were absolutely devastated while they were listening to this album, trying to find out what was the relation with the great original. Actually, there isn't any, although... This is just something else.

This being said, the evolution of the band during the nineties and the naughties was such that this work is far from being poor. Once you have switched the original "Phaedra" button and listen to this one with a fresh and open mind, there is nothing wrong here actually.

Some upbeat electronic during the "remix" of the giant song, some excellent and ambient keys for "Mysterious". This one particularly sounds just splendid (as the original one to tell the truth).

As a whole, my opinion is that it is a good work but the major mistake was to recall one of their legendary albums from the seventies and therefore mislead their faithful fans. I just listen to it as if there no relation at all.

I rate this TD album with three stars. Bear in mind that it was probably a wrong marketing title? but the "new" track "Delphi" should please most of the TD fans from the middle seventies (for the first half) and other ones from the nineties (for the second half). At least I feel like this.

4 stars Sorry everyone; I'm going to just disagree with BOTH camps here. As a Christian, my music collection is roughly divided into two halves: faith and non-faith. On the non-faith side, TD are my favourite group and the original Phaedra, which I first heard back in 1984 or 5, is my all-time favourite ... (read more)

5 stars Forget the fanatics, this is a re-make of an overrated directionless album that far exceeds the is a great modern album that is coherent, accessible and highly enjoyable. I'm glad Edgar Froese decided to go for fresher sounds instead of trying to do it like the amateurish mess that ... (read more)

1 stars Just a few words on this. It happened to me to get through it on the radio and mistook it for a "MIDI" version of their timeless masterpiece. I could have done better with my computer and any VST instrument. It sounds just like listening to a baby trying to play in tune after "Phaedra". This would t ... (read more)

1 stars I have to agree with Ricochet. This album is by far one of the worst albums ever made by Tangerine Dream. It is far, far worse than any new album that they could have made. This CD makes a complete mockery of the original Phaedra. It insults it in every way imaginable. This CD would only be ... (read more)
