Review by ZowieZiggy
3 stars "Tangerine Dream" seemed to have been quite impressed by the Japanese culture. After the release of "Kyoto" which was which conceived during a tour in Japan and released a long time after, TD now offers an oeuvre which is divided into several albums of which three are released so far.

The first leg offers some very interesting music, sometimes close to their great seventies period: "Navel: Part One" & the first half of "Part Three"). Maybe that the fact that Edgar's son is not featured any more can explain this feeling: Edgar is again fully in charge (although one might suspect that he never lost control) and might be willing to integrate more of the "old TD" back again in his works. This is very much of my liking.

The "Second Part" will please more the fans of the nineties since it uses more these characteristically driven electronic upbeat sounds; although more sensitive in this circumstance.

The second piece of music from "Springtime In Nagasaki" (which holds only two) is more experimental for a good bunch. Surprisingly it ends up with a short section that is fully comparable as a Jean-Michel Jarre composition: melodic and commercial. Joyfull and very pleasant indeed.

In all, this album is another good work from Edgar (but these are countless by now). Three stars for the fist step into his "nuclear" music.
