4 stars I haven't bought a TD album since Underwater Sunlight and only really bought this because it was dedicated to the memory of Syd Barrett. So shock number one is that it is not an instrumental album, it has vocals, (which is enough to send many a Tangerine Dream fan into a flat spin), and shock number two arrives on the form of the vocals themselves - some reviews have likened Chris Hausl to Mark Almond, which is close, but not strictly accurate, but they would be perfectly at home on an 80's synth-pop CD (or more recently Dark Wave and EBM). However, that be said, the guy can sing and it really fits the music to a T. He even manages a passable Irish lilt on Lake of Pontchartrain, which is my only niggle here - I have strong doubts about the song being Traditional Irish, since Lake Pontchartrain is near New Orleans and is about a Creole Girl.

Musically, TD have re-found their stride and any of the tracks here (sans vocal) would sit comfortably alongside tunes from Stratosphere or Force Majeure - Edgar Froese's lead guitar breaks are equally worthy of those albums alone (most notably on A Dream of Death). In fact it is the guitarmanship that really lifts the majority of the songs, for example the acoustic guitar overlaid with some seriously sustained electric/ebow guitar from Thorsten Quaeschning on The Blessed Damozel is just sublime. Add to this the vocals (adapted from 17th & 18th century poetry from the likes of Shelly and Blake) and Tangerine Dream have produced something really special.

4 stars Well it has been a very long time coming as in purchasing some recent Tangerine Dream material, however by giving Madcap's Flaming Duty some dutiful listening I decided to invest in the full CD version. I am not disappointed as if there is any accusation that TD do not reinvent themsleves then this is proof to the contrary as was the Tyger and Cyclone releases in bygone years. This is a richly laden vocally driven album and whilst the music resembles Froese's works mainly the vocals are so well done the album holds up really strongly overall. A great TD release sounding fresh and great vocal work from Chris Hausl. There are some excellent Celtic influences also especially on ' Lake of The Pontchartrain'. Other highlights would have to be ' Hymn to Intellectual Beauty', ' Dream of Death' and ' Shape of Sin' If you like this album you will also enjoy Infinite Symphony by Clearlight Symphony. Similar in many respects and quality vocals which is a winning formula to change! Four stars.

2 stars Well, I guess that I will be one of the few that won't feel like rating this album pretty high here.

It is of course not the first time that Edgar Froese has integrated vocals on a TD album, but he never did to such an extent. And after over an hour of this treat, I have to say that the mellow, uniform and inexpressive tone from Chris Hausl is quite working on my nerves.

I'm afraid that my perception of this album won't match the majority of (very few) my fellow reviewers. IMO this album is all flatness and (mainly) boredom. Some fine guitar during "A Dream Of Death". Big deal!

Out of almost fifty reviews from the band, I consider this album as one of the weakest TD work so far. Dull, pitiful and totally lacking of originality. Some deep "Talk Talk" feeling is even available; the most noticeable of these "moments" is probably "Hear The Voice". A typical and great "press next" track. Just as the painful "Lake Of Pontchartrain". One of the worst for sure. But is "Mad Song" any better??? I doubt.

It really hurts me when I have to review a TD album which doesn't fulfil its role. Without any spirit nor flavour: so is "Madcap's Flaming Duty". Fortunately, it didn't happen so often. This sounds as no TD at all. I can only recommend to avoid such an album. Unless you would like to listen to some sub "Human League" compositions ("One Hour Of Madness") or some sub "Spandau Ballet" ballad ("Man").

I guess that you have the global feel?

You can easily miss this release. I will be extremely generous because of the emotional link I have with the band: two stars. But gosh! These vocals sitting at each corner!!!
