Review by philippe
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Content Development & Krautrock Team
3 stars More accessible than the previous Froese's efforts and more orientated to soft, mainstream synth music, Stuntman is a recommended album for those who want to spend a relaxing moment throw a spacey, atmospheric musical journey. The electronic material used by Froese is dominated by analog synth, rejecting Mellotron and other vintage keyboards, electric organs. The opening track of the album is built around a slightly rythmical sequencer part with gorgeous synth melodies...the best tune is Drunken Mozart in the Desert, a quite emotional composition with etheral and ambient synth arrengements. However this album can easily disconcert the Tangerine Dream and Froese's fans from the first hours...it's not pre electronic music with an experimental bent but soft ambiant electronic music.

5 stars This is one of the most helium-boosted electronic albums I have ever heard, maybe with the Tangerine Dream's "Tangram" album! Actually, this record surely gave the perfect pace for the new orientation of the Tangerine Dream's sound of the early 80's, immortalized with the arrival of "Tangram". Many floating keyboards and electric guitar solos are obviously reminiscent of the "Force Majeure" album. Absolutely DYNAMIC & progressive New Age not suited for relaxation, this record is the best of the Froese's albums. Needless to say "Stuntman" has numerous similitudes with the "Tangram" album. Shall I add "Stuntman" has some of the Jean Michel Jarre's elements, especially on his 2 first albums "Equinoxe" and "Oxygene", like the ultra slow wah-wah effect applied on the VERY intensely floating streams of keyboards, or like the very melodic & floating keyboards arrangements for instance on the last part of "Drunken Mozart in the desert". I like the violent & sustained bottom peak + highly floating keyboards in the debut of "Dali-esque sleep fuse": this is the REAL "Tangram" sound! Notice on this track the impressive helicopter emulation! All the tracks are excellent!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

3 stars Stuntman is a good album from the frontman of Tangerine Dream. It was 1979 too so in many ways a brave release from Edgar Froese just prior to the bands epic ' Tangram' album.From the opening bubbly ' Stuntman ' to the wonderfully serene ' It would be like Samoa' the album kicks off in style. ' Detroit Snackbar Dreamer' is just perfect in depicting a late night ambient cruise down through ' Industria'. Perfect hooks and great spatial balance.

Side two of the vinyl starts with the wall of sound know as ' Drunken Mozart In The Desert' 10 minutes of pure TD references more reminisent of ' Force Majeaure' compositions. The last two tracks play out in a similar vein but personally ' a dali-esque sleep fuse' encapsulate everything this good album has to offer. Recommended to all true TD fans as this holds itself up as a really good solo effort.3 and a half stars would be more accurate.

4 stars An unexpected high point in Froese's discography. Next to Epsilon in Malysian Pale, this would be the one album I would recommend, even to the casual Tangerine Dream listener, as it is a lot more satisfying then the Tangerine Dream output from '79 and '80.

On tracks like Stuntman and It Would be Like Samoa, the approach is light-weight and poppy but nevertheless done very stylish. From Detroit Snackbar Dreamer onwards we're in for the real treat. Froese weaves one enchanting melody and sequence on top of the other and achieves an album whose lush sounds simply bathe in light. Quite a difference from the (equally astounding) dark drones from Phaedra.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Stuntman is Edgar Froese moving towards a poppier synth sound, and is almost pre- new-age sounding (only a touch). Though this album isn't actually bad, it's definitely not like the amazing Aqua or Epsilon in Malaysian Pale. Stuntman seems to be geared towards accessibility rather than the usual experimental journeys that Froese is known for in his solo work and within Tangerine Dream. This is an album that foreshadows the effects of the '80s on great progressive electronic artists.

I have to agree with another reviewer, philippe, that the best track on this album and the closest to Froese's famous sound is "Drunken Mozart in the Desert", but I still don't particularly care for it too much anyway. To me, this whole album sounds like elaborate variations on Camel's "Aristillus" from Moonmadness, which was even the most pointless track on that album (great album, though). These tracks do still progress though, in an '80s Tangerine Dream-meets- Kraftwerk kind of cold, dead, dreamy style.

Stuntman isn't great, and I'm honestly taken aback by the favorable rating on this album. This album isn't really comparable to Froese's best work done earlier in the '70s, but all in all, it's definitely better than most of Tangerine Dream's '80s-'90s albums.

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Edgar Froese's solo albums are usually a step down from his concurrent work in Tangerine Dream, since they are mostly produced in order to earn some quick money to fund more Tangerine Dream projects. Stuntman is a welcome exception, standing head and shoulders above Cyclone and Force Majeure, the preceding Tangerine Dream releases. It's the standard late 1970s early 1980s Tangerine Dream stuff spiced up with Froese's guitar work and better compositional taste than he's shown since Stratosfear - proving once again that, like Klaus Schulze, Froese is a master of evoking atmosphere in electronic music. An excellent purchase for any fan of electronic music in the Tangerine Dream mode.

Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This was Edgar's last album of the seventies released in 1979. He's gone completely digital for the first time although he does add analogue synths and piano to this record. The mellotron is gone (gasp).

"Stuntman" has this electronic beat as almost horn-like synths join in. "It Would Be Like Samoa" has these outbursts of sound along with birds chirping then flute-like sounds. An electronic beat joins in before 1 1/2 minutes. The flute-like sounds stop after 4 minutes as other sounds cascade in and out. Then it becomes more spacey. "Detroit Snackbar Dreamer" has these strange and fairly high pitched sounding synths and a beat.

"Drunken Mozart In The Desert" is spacey as a beat comes in just before 2 minutes. It stops after 5 minutes as sounds pulse. Horn-like synths with spacey background sounds take over 6 1/2 minutes in. "A Dali-Esque Sleep Fuse" is really the one song that stands out for me in a positive way. Faint sounds to start then it picks up with a beat. Guitar-like synths come in then they stop before 6 minutes as a fast paced sound takes over. It's spacey late. "Scarlet Score For Mescalero" has these slowly pulsating sounds as other high pitched ones play over top.

A good album and one many Froese fans rate highly. For me 3 stars is the right rating.

PROG REVIEWER
5 stars As good as any Tangerine Dream album, 1979's 'Stuntman' was proof that it really was all about the group's founding member. The one constant in the group's four-decade existence, Edgar Froese - Dali companion, psychedelic guitarist, Berlin School-founder, electronic innovator - has enjoyed a remarkable career. Under his leadership Tangerine Dream issued a plethora of classic albums, enjoying a glorious first fifteen-years that began with the experimental acid-rock of 'Electronic Meditation'(1970) and included such groundbreaking albums as 'Phaedra'(1974), 'Rubycon'(1975) and 'Force Majeure'(1979). Tangerine Dream were a big deal during the 1970's, and the group enjoyed strong album sales and regular sold-out tours. This allowed Froese to commence a concurrent solo career and for some - though whisper it quietyly - Froese's own albums proved just as remarkable, if not better, than his work with Tangerine Dream. For this writer, both 1975's lushly-mysterious 'Epsilon In Malaysian Pale' and 'Stuntman' represent the very best of Froese's solo material, albums that rank alongside the very best of Tangerine Dream. Issued during 1979, the same year as Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' and 'Apocalypse Now'(a great year...) 'Stuntman' finds Froese matching the meditative ambience of his earlier records with a slightly more melodic hue. Its a beautiful album, and because this writer loves it so much he finds it very difficult to write about. That's how good it is. If you're looking for more beyond your-now complete Tangerine Dream collection, the solo career of Froese is the place the to visit. Enjoy. STEFAN TURNER, BRISTOL, 2013
