Tangerine Dream biography
Edgar Froese first formed The Ones in 1965. After several private concerts (notably at Salvador Dali's house), the band changes its name for Tangerine Dream.
After a first release featuring Klaus Schulze and Conrad Schnitzler "Electronic Meditation" (1969) Tangerine Dream will abandon aleatoric experimentations to concentrate on radical cosmic synth atmospheres. "Alpha Centauri" (1971) will be a landmark of the band's first explorations in electronic realms. Without a regular pulse but just with organ chords, a few manipulated guitar lines and synthesisers effects, "Alpha Centauri" remains an absolute epic and classic cosmic adventure. The following year, the contemplative "Zeit" represents a milestone, an abstract & timeless musical world. "Atem" (1973) whose line up (Froese / Franke / Baumann) will participate to TD's classic years until 1977 is an obscure and mind-blowing electronic symphony.

In 1973 start TD's classic & popular Virgin years. The captivating "Phaedra" contributes to the trademark sound of TD, with Moog arpeggio, pulsating sequencer patterns and powerful synthesisers sounds. An all time classic that launched the band's notoriety and career outside of Germany. Next to "Phaedra", "Rubycon", the live "Ricochet" and "Stratosfear" deliver ethereal and complex rhythmical soundscapes. In 1977, the band released the soundtrack of "Sorcerer" (directed by William Friedkin). A dark, moody atmospheric album (with a rather similar material used in previous albums). "Sorcerer" is also the last studio work with the classic TD line up. The vocalist Steve Joliffe and the drummer Klaus Krieger were employed for Paul Baumann's replacement and record "Cyclone". Disconcerted, the album is badly seen by the public and the critic despite that it introduced many interesting elements to TD's music. In 1979, almost in duet, Edgar Froese and Chris Franke record "Force Majeure".

In the 80s, TANGERINE DREAM knew a long and fruitful career in writing music for screen. The departure of Chris Franke in 1988 marks momentarily a hard blow to the band's musical creativity. During the 90s, TD published numerous live albums, soundtracks. Edgar Froese's son, Jerome integrates the band. They release several albums as "Melrose", "Rockoon"...

Purgatorio (Dante Alighieri - La Divina Commedia)
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by molokaicreeper

4 stars This Tangerine Dream album is an essential addition to any fan of the band. It includes a studio version of a previous live performance at the Royal Festival Hall, in London, in March 2004. At the opening night of the Ether Electronic Music Festival which was followed by the world premiere of a restored version of the Italian silent movie "Purgatorio" from 1911 by Giuseppe de Liguoro's, second part of Dante Alighieri's "La Divina Commedia."

Judged by the fact that this is such an important piece of history, one must listen to it as such. Very dramatic at times, while the original sound of Tangerine Dream takes a peak in songs like "All the Steps to Heaven", "The Glowing Zodiac Wheel" and "Slave to the Gods" then closest with a very anthemic array of songs such as "Till The End Of Silence", and "Spirit Spiral".

Rubycon
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by BatBacon

4 stars I had actually forgot how exciting this album was until I heard it on my way home from work some days ago. I work in a small supermarket, stressful days and late nights. This night I was almost dying of tiredness, could hardly get my ass on the bus. I guess everyone has this kind of nights, so you probably know exactly what I mean. Then think of the feeling of finding a kind of comfortable seat in a almost empty bus. Its almost midnight and its completely dark outside the bus window, except for some street lights and a few cars passing by.

Usually I would listen to Dark side of the Moon or anything by Sigur Ros at nights like this, but this night I just happened to find some old and forgotten Tangerine Dream albums on my iPod. For some reason I remembered those as pretty hard to get into, a bit disturbing and noisy. "It was so long ago though", I thought and put Rubycon on play and it was a great soundtrack for my travel home.

This isn't an album like you usually know it (you know, with songs and [&*!#]), but then again you don't really expect an usual album from a german synth groupe in the 70s. That would be to simple. Here we have two songs only, but they stretch for over 17 minutes each. Also its hard to say if there really is so much happening in the songs. I guess it is, but slowly and very floaty. Trying to explain it in text would make a quite dry review, so Im not going to try that. A highly surreal painting would probably make more sense than a text, because thats what the record seems to be about. There is no story or any events here, this music is more like a journey to a very strange, some how hunting but very beautiful place. Its the kind of music you can almost see floating through the air, even though you couldn't possibly describe it to anyone.

To be a bit obiective about it (its very hard, but I´ll give it a try) this is probably not something you listen to every day, your brain would probably transform into a mushroom if you did (a quite fantastic mushroom with a smiling face though). This is something you listen to alone when its really late and you are too tired for anything advanced but still want something wonderful to fill your tired brain with. It sounds like Kraftwerk without structure, melody or vocals, which is exactly what you need sometimes.

Tangram

Review by tdfloyd

5 stars After the exit of primary member Peter Baumann, Tangerine Dream creates a couple of albums with a real drummer and one of them even has lyrics. While both Force Majeure and Cyclone are very good , especially the former, TD reverts back to their glory days and becomes a band with three keyboardists again. They even go back to 2 side long tracks. but that is where the comparison ends. Johannes Schmoelling arrives and immediately his stamp on Tangram is unmistakeable. Almost gone is the icy spacey ness of Phaedra, and in comes a scheen, along with a more melodic soundscape. Brighter, upbeat and a bit catchy in spots, Tangerine Dream hits a sweet spot between space music and instrumental pop/ rock.

I really enjoy this album and rate it a weak 5 star album. It's the best of the Franke, Froese, Schmoelling lineup.

Review by ebil0505

5 stars As my first exposure to TD and the sub-genre it belongs to, I have found an audio paradise unparalleled by anything I had heard prior to Rubycon. Here there is no simple line-up of your stereotypical rock band instruments set to pump out songs and fall in line to the accordance of the listener's expectations. Instead, we are left to witness electronic music as never comprehended before (at least, for me). While I have no knowledge of the band members themselves or their roles in creating this blissful electronic music, it does not take much imagination to understand why many regard this album as a masterpiece. A dream put into sounds; a soaring landscape of pulsing and reverberating audio effects that transport the listener to realms unknown. Either side to Rubycon is uniquely creative in their own right. They challenge the mind to conjure up images of the listener's choosing, giving isolated experiences specific to each person. TD really give up interpretation to us and leave the swelling moods of electronic pulses and vibrations to themselves. This album is essential, I think, to those who love to really immerse themselves in music and give it their undivided attention. That is to say, most of us Prog listeners.

Zeit 'Largo In 4 Movements'
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by Xonty

5 stars Before I start, I should say it's extremely rare for me to give such a minimal album a 5-star rating, but this really deserves it! Very narrowly gets one, but the only electronic album I've given a 5-star review to.

Right, where to start reviewing "Zeit"? All 74 minutes consist of improvisation, very few melodies, no lyrics, and no concept of time whatsoever (in a way), and I'm guessing lots of people have gone on about the 7-minute cello intro to "Birth Of Liquid Plejades"? Therefore, I'll try to avoid going through each little sequence of notes, because you really have to experience such an almost otherworldly album to get to grips with it.

Definitely a very risky release and entirely pushing the boundaries of music, let along progressive rock. Although many of the themes on here are "kosmische" and distant, somehow it feels like a very personal album. Again, this may be because of the empathy of Tangerine Dream taking such a risk with it. The effects that the musicians use are just blissful, and there is such a magnificent atmosphere and tension throughout. Always something going on. Also, I'd like to give a hat-tip to Edgar Froese. His "glissando guitar" adds a greatly underestimated quality to "Zeit", and this album cover (painted by himself) is so hypnotic and broad. Feels larger than any other artworks in my collection, because of that bloated black circle centring the solar eclipse in the middle.

The album really requires many listens, and you need a lot of time to really be able to indulge yourself in it without being interrupted (not completed achieved by myself yet!). Unlike albums such as "Ommadawn" and "Agaetis Byrjun", you really have to get INTO the mood during your listen, unlike just being in the right mood to begin with, in my opinion. All sounds quite pretentious but this is an album of 4 self-indulgent 20-minute epics. One of the reasons I love it really. The titles of the music have been very well selected in my opinion, especially "Nebulous Dawn" and the title track. You can really get to experience the music more, and with each title making you think and investigate these extracts from "Largo", the album can be interpreted in so many different ways, almost completely different from the last time you heard it in some cases.

This album is an absolute favourite of mine, and my preferred Tangerine Dream album (the only one I have purchased up until now). The great Piero Scaruffi proclaimed this to be simply "their masterpiece and one of the most important albums of the time, a four-movement symphony which adopted a more electronic format and a looser concept of rhythm." summing it up excellently.

The last thing I'd like to say is that you shouldn't be at all put off by these many negative reviews and the length of "Zeit". Whilst this album does have a lot of lowly rated reviews compared to other electronic classics, look at some of the positive ones! Just as lots of 60s/psychedelic fans cannot comprehend "Trout Mask Replica", or how prog rock fans (like myself) struggle to look past the musical basics and understand the emotion behind indie albums like "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea", "Zeit" falls into the same unfortunate trap...

A-: Definitely a masterpiece, still way ahead of its time. If any of you listen to this for the first time and there is just some appeal to you, buy it! You won't regret it! :P

Review by Thandrus

5 stars Really, a stunning album. Although one might have contradictory impressions about TD's studio albums from 80's, the live recordings are all killers. Here the band presents itself as gloriously as in Ricochet and Encore, but a bit of new age melodic sensibility constitutes a really welcome musical bonus. The format is the same as in their previous live recordings - side long tracks only.

Side A is especially beautiful and may be their best live piece ever. I have the Amiga edition of this concert, given to me by my friend, who bought it at the local fair at app. $1. Funny, isn't it?

Review by sturoc

4 stars I must first correct a few of the above reviewers and then will move on to the review proper.

TD are not a Progressive Rock band They are in a category all their own .And I surprised they get recognized here on ProgArchives . But so be it. Great listeners know quality works of music when they hear it !

Chris Franke played drums on certain segments of compositions and tape playback during this concert /tour .He was actually a drummer prior to joining TD. He replaced of all people Klaus Schulze who had been TD's drummer at that time. Baumann did no drumming for TD. There are no overdubs during the mixing of Richocet the Lp was mixed from multiple performances in England and France during their autumn 1975 tour. The M400 Mellotron was played by Froese, Franke and Baumann at various times during a tour . They were two onstage depending on their state of readiness- note: they were not a very roadworthy instrument. The M400 can play simultaneous sounds. TD had custom tape banks made specifically for them so an inifnite number of instruments can be 'stacked' depending on what tape banks are used.

Now I will not pontificate of TD For they stand on their own and need no fanfare. So I will keep this review very brief.

Side 1 Richocet Pt 1: TD at the height of their sequencer use and still incorporating percussion as they have on earlier epics. Froese's elect guitar is even more prominent during this period. Waves of drumming resound thru out the first half then quickly die away awash in early electronics.

Side 2 Richocet Pt 2: Trademark TD Mellotron flute and piano here in the intro. These themes and motifs will be influencing the next tour and future recordings such as Stratosphere, Encore (the 2nd Live lp for them- a double Lp !) TD's Mellotron flute carries one off to the shoulder of Orion and then drops them into a deep melancholy world of longing.

Enough said now listen, alone in a quiet room or outside gazing at the star filled night.....

Review by agla

5 stars With " Zeit " Tangerine Dream create a space epic, "2001: A Space Odyssey" style, dedicated to the philosophical concept of time. With this cd they perfected the insights, which had begun to explore in " Alpha Centauri ", long suites for cosmic electronic synthesizers. " Zeit " is a real "trip" electronic no melody, and very minimal, that hypnotizes all the time! Perhaps the same Tangerine they wanted to keep playing this " mantra " electronic without pause! " Zeit ' came out' in a double vinyl and already the dark cover foreshadowed interplanetary travel and cosmic dark atmosphere . The album is divided into four movements and it starts with " The Birth of Liquid Plejades " The sound of the cello makes you get up from the floor for seven minutes, you can hear the influence of Ligeti and his compositions for string quartet, then enters the Moog played by the distinguished guest Florian Fricke and the mind begins to make a journey into inner space aided by a minimal and transcendent synth, as long as the song ends abruptly, leaving a feeling of awakening from a nightmare magmatic and hypnotic . The journey continues with the dark " Neboulous Dawn," the representation of the rising of the dawn nebula, on some planet that does not belong to our galaxy. The reverberations of the VCS3 synth of Franke and Baumann, and the generator of Froese reach the goal, coming slowly in the psyche of the listener. " Origin of Supernatural Probabilities " is the third movement which opens the second side and begins quietly with the chords of the guitar, continuing in an incredible journey with synthetic beats and sounds of the cosmos, always played by the generator of Froese: a song worthy of a saga -dark SF, between galaxies and uncharted worlds. The title track " Zeit " closes this epic sci-fi in a dramatic atmosphere, it looks like the soundtrack of an astral disaster. This is the track most minimal and dark cosmic of cd, which could continue indefinitely if not culminate unfortunately the end to wake up from this trip cathartic and enlightening. Few records like " Zeit " marked a turning point in the history of electronic music of '900, setting new standards, that is where all the electronic music from ambient up to industrial have taken inspiration. A incredible work that should not be missed in any collection.

Under Cover - Chapter One
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

1 stars An album of Top-40 covers...from Tangerine Dream? An even better question might be: Why not? But the answer to the second question should be obvious after hearing only a few tracks. The project apparently began as a backstage joke. Expecting fans to pay for such a feeble punch line wasn't, however, very funny.

Some of the song selections almost make sense, at least on paper. Tangerine Dream covering PINK FLOYD ('Wish You Were Here') could have provided a fitting homage to one of Edgar Froese's earliest Space Rock role models. And Tangerine Dream playing KRAFTWERK ('The Model') should have been a slam dunk: one pioneering elektronische musik group paying tribute to another.

But the results are almost unrecognizable, and not in a good way. Nobody wants a cover song to be a karaoke copy of the original. But to render such lightweight commercial material even more insubstantial suggests a total collapse of aesthetic perception, unless the joke runs even deeper than I thought. The soft-focus schmaltz in every arrangement carries a hint of satire, with each song layered in enough synthetic sugar to frighten Hansel and Gretel. Need your fix of musical aspartame? Check out the soporific reading of the Eagles hit 'Hotel California'. Or the bombastic club mix of the Chris Isaak ballad 'Wicked Games'. Or the disco-fried 'Norwegian Wood'.

It can't be easy keeping track of Tangerine Dream's mammoth discography. But after a bite of this plastic turkey even diehard fans may not even bother anymore. File the effort in the 'What Were They Thinking' box: the porcelain one, with the tankful of water. And if it was truly intended as a parody of pop music fashions, the biggest laugh might be the album's ominous sub-title: 'Chapter One', a promise (or a threat) of more to come.

Review by obiter
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The quintessential Tangerine Dream experience. Purely electronic, no lyrics, a flow of interlacing sequencer arpeggios.

For the modern ear this is trance/space before it was invented by whoever it is in the 90s has claimed credit for it.

What to do while getting in the mood for this (not in the Glenn Miller or Rush sense): hug kittens and trees and lie outside watching the stars wheel in the sky. I reckon this album is another one for the isolation tank and incense.

Despite some of the sound effects I am reliably informed that no puppies were strangled during the last third of the title track.

Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares reminds me of a few dodgy sci-fi movies where we are meant to be overawed by the passing of some mammoth inter-stellar space craft (or backing the animation of a dying star/decaying planet's orbit: may sound weird but you'll get it if you listen to it). I'm shallow I was suitably awestruck.

Movements of a Visionary has some of those bubbly effects that are the meat and drink of hardened Ozrics fans. I love this but, I'm always yearning for Ed Wynne to take it to the next level.

Sequent C is simply haunting.

Given a choice between Phaedra and Rubycon I'd take Phaedra every time but that's just me. I feel Rubycon is essential and this masterpiece is an excellent addition to any prog collection. But like I say: I'd pick this every time.
