4 stars Soundmill Navigator by Tangerine Dream is in fact a live album captured in 1976, featuring the classic 70s lineup Froese/Franke/Baumann. The sound is reminiscent of Ricochet and Stratosfear albums, but manages to bring something new that cannot be found on other albums, even on recent fan-live boxsets.

The performance, as other many other ones of this period, is composed of one long 40 minutes epic synthetizer driven piece. Soundmill Navigator begins by setting a dark atmosphere, then goes on to build sonic textures, evoking geometric shapes changing, and finishes with a psyhedelic - trippy sequence. The only reason why I give it 4 stars and not 5 is the sound quality. Anyway, a very good and unique live performance by the pioneers of progressive electronic !

4 stars I guess that some old fans must have been finding their ways into their new repertoire in the nineties. This might explain why TD released this live set from the vaults.

The superb trio from the seventies (Edgar, Chris & Peter) is featured and the music was captured in the middle seventies and the result is of course at the heights of expectations. At least, this is my feeling.

As usual, this live performance was almost improvised and contains fantastic ambient and spacey landscapes as the band was used to in these days. Wonderful atmospheres, magical simplicity, tremendous beauty. This is what you get with "Soundmill Navigator". Almost (only?) forty-two minutes of very good music from these giants.

After such a lots average to good albums released in the past decade, such a lost item could only fill the hearts of devoted fans. OK: the commercial "manoeuvre" is doubtful. OK: the timing is rather short and could have been filled with some other TD moments. OK.

But since the piece is delivered as such, one has to take it as it is. And I can tell you that it quite pleasant. It is not as atmospheric nor melodic as "Rubycon". It includes some fine electronic beats around mid-time and at no moment did I feel the faintest moment of boredom while listening to this lengthy track.

I have received this album with lots of emotion and fever. Should you feel the same while listening to it! You'll be rewarded for sure although the second part is probably less interesting and more predictable except the last five minutes which are absolutely splendid. It reminds me a lot the fantastic "Indian Summer" available on the great "Green Desert".

You know my profound addiction to TD. I rate this album with four stars.

2 stars Advertised as a "Live, June 27th, 1976" concert original, this release does not fully meet the expectations set by that date. Main reasons are the doubtful recording quality and, as everything released by Froese, his inability to avoid meddling with the original material.

In the opening 15 minutes it's as good as impossible to hear what was originally played. Everything is drowned under thick layers of modern new-age synth sounds. As long as tampering with original material goes it's done quite decent, but it's sure tampering, these sounds could impossibly be created in 1976.

After 15 minutes a nice flowing sequence starts, it's one they hadn't used on any other album yet and also the guitar solo sounds fresh and inspired. There are still some modern sounds added but the original music is clearly audible, and enjoyable. In a way it makes this album into another Green Desert case, an album situated in 1973 but with more edited parts then original ones.

Now, I guess most listeners won't bother whether it's all vintage 1976 or not, as long as it's good, and it sort of is, the music is even excellent actually, but you have to dig the somewhat muddy sound of it. Overall, good but for fans.
