Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Tangerine Dream never enjoyed the same respect in the 1990s as the band responsible for such elemental masterpieces like "Rubycon" and "Ricochet", but that was twenty years earlier. Let's face it: by the time Edgar Froese re-tooled the group to include his son Jerome (whose infant face had adorned so many of his dad's early record sleeves), the music was hardly what anyone would call cutting edge.

But I freely admit to having developed a soft spot for this disc: a quasi-live recording from their 1992 North American tour, and perhaps the quintessential snapshot, for better or worse, of the new TD nearing the start of the next millennium.

It was, as then soon-to-be-ousted President George H.W. Bush might have said, a "kinder, gentler" Tangerine Dream: no longer pioneers of counter-culture electronic meditation, now closer in style to the more audience-friendly aesthetics of JEAN- MICHEL JARRE and VANGELIS. Coincidentally (or not?), the opening fanfare here has more than a slight echo of the Oscar® winning "Chariots of Fire" theme.

Happily, the trademark synth-and-sequencer rhythm and bounce of classic Tangerine Dream is alive and reasonably healthy, dolled up in a bright new digital wardrobe but still irresistible whenever it canters over the horizon. Sure, it's a more earthbound, antiseptic facsimile of the original TD sound, thanks in part to the macho, arena-rock riffing of guitarist Zlatko Perica. And Linda Spa handles her saxophone with an open-hearted grace and dexterity that occasionally tips the music uncomfortably close to a blissful New Age narcolepsy unheard of in the band's proto-ambient infancy (and almost guaranteed to make any old-school fan shudder in his anorak).

But the softer interludes fit snugly alongside the more kinetic dance floor grooves, forming a near-mesmerizing, homogenous flow of uninterrupted music, all of it showing a melodic flair the old TD couldn't hope (or in truth never wanted) to match (the first four tracks work almost like a single 34+ minute non-stop medley). As always with Tangerine Dream the original concert tapes were enhanced in the studio afterward, to a point where it's damn near impossible to distinguish between the live performance and the previously unreleased studio track ("Treasure of Innocence"), tacked on here to fill an already generous CD to its limit.

Of course all the music here is new: again, a habit with live TD. The one exception is the unexpected encore, a cover of (believe it or not) the old Jimi Hendrix chestnut "Purple Haze". It's an entertaining novelty to be sure, but in retrospect also a somewhat mechanical plod compared to the empyrean heights achieved elsewhere on the disc.

Never mind. The song at least earned the band their third Grammy® Award nomination (an honor any self-respecting musician should regard as an insult to the creative spirit). And for listeners still clinging to that early '70s counter-culture lifeboat it offers a final measure of the distance Edgar Froese had traveled from his Krautrock roots.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars "220 Volt Live" is quite a different live album than usual. It is much more upbeat, features lots of electric guitar solo (and not of the mildest ones), some sax is being played as well (but this is not the first time though).

In one word, if you expect their marvellous and stellar music, you might be disappointed. But if you give it a few spins (but I admit that I had to give a lot of them before posting this review), you might be rewarded by your patience.

There are still some nice and atmospheric moments, don't be afraid, but these are quite discreet and short. Each track follows the previous one without interruption (up to "Homeless") which can give the sensation to be faced with a long and unique piece of music.

This is the problem with this work: the sensation of repetitiveness has never been so obvious. And it lasts for about seventy five minutes. This album is still interesting to understand the band's evolution in the nineties, but a traditional fan of the early hour (as I am) might find it difficult to approach.

Melodic guitar and frenetic drumming during the title song are quite a mix, shall I say. Different, but interesting at the same time. The closing part is more conventional and holds very pleasant keyboards.

During the second long number ("Homeless"), the guitar parts sounds more familiar as a "Santana" effort than on a TD one. Again, very nice, but so different to what can be expected.

The first classic TD track is reached with "Sundance Kid". Another beautiful and sculptural piece of dreamy music (at least during its initial phase). The beat afterwards get even more classic and can be compared to their works from the seventies. My favourite on this album for sure.

This seriously guitar oriented live album provides some good moments of emotion ("Hamlet") and a huge surprise: "Purple Haze" from the best guitar player ever (Jimi of course). This is an all instrumental version which does its job but no more. The audience's reaction is amazing. I wouldn't have imagined that TD fans should know Jimi's repertoire (but I am also one example). But maybe that these crowd cheering were added?

In all, this long album is quite decent but it's hard for me to choose between two or three stars. Five out of ten really.

3 stars The skill of creating music that's dynamic, yet boring at the same time. I am the first one to admit that had I actually seen the performance, I would have been left with a much better impression compared with the (overdubbed) CD release.
