3 stars This is a good movie soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. This soundtrack movie has short songs that quite sound like the albums Tangram, White Eagle and Logos. Actually, they took some excerpts from other studio albums, like "Thru metamorphic rocks (Force majeure)" on "Thief" and the piano intro + a substantial development on the Pergamon album; there is also practically a copy of the beat of "Convention of the 24" (White eagle). Nevertheless, there are some new songs that are not bad, despite a bit diluted and very short; so, globally, if you like the Tangerine Dream's sound of the early 80's featuring Johannes Schmoelling, then should should at least slightly enjoy some tracks on this record. There are unfortunately many variations on the same theme.

Rating: 3.5 stars

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars In general, most of the many Tangerine Dream soundtracks work better as spooky/spacey background music for films, than they do as stand-alone albums. (This is hardly surprising, given their raison d'être.) There are exceptions (SORCERER and THIEF make pretty good additions to a fan's collection), but as a rule, individual tracks are often shorter, with abrupt fadeouts which tend to give the soundtracks a somewhat jarring feel overall. Just as you might start to get into the mood of a selection, it fades quickly away after a mere one to two-minute stay.

This disjointed character is also much the case with WAVELENGTH, the soundtrack from an obscure 1983 science fiction film about aliens stranded in the Mojave Desert. The music itself is worthwhile; it's typical mid-period TD from the Froese, Franke and Schmoelling lineup, but with 16 tracks, many are simply too short to establish the ambiance that the synth band's longer selections so ably convey. There's also a smattering of material lifted or re-created from then-recent studio works, so not everything you'll hear will be new. I can't be bothered doing the "forensic" work needed to identify specific source albums and tracks, but serious fans will recognize the exhumed material when they hear it.

Still, WAVELENGTH has just enough new and interesting material to make it worth adding to the collection of the committed TD follower. Sometime fans or those new to the band, however, would do better with one of the many excellent classic studio albums from the 70s to early 80s.

2 stars It's not that the music in this album is bad. If you look at each single track, except for the "whale stuff" of the first 20 seconds, they are good enough, but the music of Tangerine Dream needs more time to develop and compressing the ideas in 3 or 4 minutes makes this album sound as incomplete.

My impression, without having seen the movie, is of pieces of tapes taken from studio reharsals and transformed into tracks with titles. A patchwork, in few words.

It's nothing more than a collector's item, good for those who want to have all of Tangerine Dream (that's a very hard challenge if you include lives and soundtracks). Newbies and curiouses, please check out Phaedra or Ricochet, first.

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Rock Progressivo Italiano Team
3 stars Tangerine Dream's `Wavelength' is the soundtrack to an obscure Robert Carradine sci-fi film from 1983 (not currently available on DVD or Bluray, but it can be viewed on Youtube), and while it offered nothing truly fresh or groundbreaking from the band, it's still makes for a fine background listen while offering several variations of spacey/electronic ambience. Composed by the trio of Edgar Froese, Christopher Franke and Johannes Schmoelling, considering the albums around it such as `Hyperborea', `White Eagle' etc, `Wavelength' still features the ghostly Melloton, as well as having a distinct mid-70's TD period sound instead of the cold plastic 80's that was emerging during that time. It's mostly comprised of short little interludes and snippets which unfortunately means that many of the tracks rarely get time to develop better, and some sections are reworked pieces from previous albums, but generally if you let the album play in it's entirety, it makes for an undemanding listen of eerie electronic music, and it's certainly far from being one of the worst releases in the band's long discography.

The opening `Main Theme' is a spooky plodding electronic pulse where you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd put an album by Italian horror soundtrack supremos Goblin on the turntable instead! `Desert Drive' is a lovely electric piano balled over positive synths that could have easily been included on the `Tangram' LP. `Mojave End Title' is a racing up-tempo synth-pop burst and is probably the most fully realised piece here. There's little traces of the old Mellotron magic on the droning ambient `Healing', skittering almost dance-like beats on the frantic interlude `Breakout', and the staccato acoustic guitar strums over phasing gently sorrowful synths on `Alien Goodbyes' has a somewhat mournful Pink Floyd quality to it. Deep space hostile alien menace pervades `Spaceship', a cold robotic beat chatters away in the background over imposing synths.

Shimmering synths and restrained Moog trills offer a reflective and meditative tone to side B's `Church Theme' that gradually grows in urgency. `Sunset Drive' has a plodding other-worldly heartbeat loop over stirring restrained Mellotron flutes, slightly dark distortion blows and airy synth soloing drifting around the background. `Airshaft' is a menacing sound-collage, whipping distorted synth lashes, violating electronic distortion and harsh percussive blasts sounding like a fractured nightmare. `Alley Walk' is a soothing respite in comparison, gentle chiming electric piano , like tiny little footsteps and a softly groaning Mellotron choir. `Cryolab' is a lonely downbeat synth drone, `Running Through The Hills' has a nice creeping beat over psychedelic electronics, there's warm placid synth washes throughout `Campfire Theme', and `Mojave End Title Reprise' is exactly what the title says.

Tangerine Dream would offer better soundtrack works (`Sorcerer' and `Firestarter' being particularly impressive), but this is still worth looking into. I actually really enjoy it purely for the fact that it is completely devoid of blatant electric guitar soloing, one thing I always disliked on their studio albums (pretty much from `Force Majeure' onwards if I recall), which I feel made their music a little too obvious and a bit lazy. In the end, `Wavelength' is completely inessential, but a pleasing listen all the same, as well as a perfectly reliable addition to Tangerine Dream collections for more forgiving fans.

Three stars.
