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"...

Review by Scorpius

4 stars There are two different types of Tangerine Dream fans. Those who despise this album and those who believe it is a masterpiece. I happen to fall very close to the latter of these two. This album is very underrated, but I do see where those who hate it are coming from. Certain tracks fall short, holding down the rest of the album from critical acclaim. Lets get to it, shall we?

The album begins with "Cold Bent Sidewalk", a 13 minute epic that introduced vocals into Tangerine Dream's sound. This track was actually my introduction into the band, so I might be biased here, but I think it's genius. Many people criticize the vocals for being uninspired and bland. I honestly don't understand where this is coming from. I always thought the track had riveting, inspired, beautiful vocals that blend with the song perfectly. The vocals on this track and the next are one of the main reasons this album divides TD fans so much. Although the vocals are endlessly criticized, there is no denying how epic and beautiful the instrumental part of this track is. Synthesizer and moog arpeggios intertwine with some almost Jethro Tull-like flute. Its simple, its genius, and most importantly, its Tangerine Dream.

The next track is "Rising Runner Missed by Endless Sender". This is the track that for me, holds this album back from 5 stars. The vocals are grating and repetitive, and so is the music. The keyboard arpeggios are back, but this time all they do is repeat, with a change in pitch every minute or so. Thank God this track is short, or I might have had to give this album a lower rating.

The final track is "Madrigal Meridian", a 20 minute epic closer. No more vocals. Happy? This track is your classic Tangerine Dream epic. Epic tracks like these, at least for me, are generally hard to dissect, so I wont even try. Let me just say that if you are a fan of the older TD sound found on Rubycon and most of Phaedra, you will love this track. Had it been on a more respected TD album, this track would get the much needed respect and love it deserves.

Prog Reviewer

1 stars Might work for nature shops...

First let's define the "ambient" mention from the title. Both old fans expecting a come-back / revisit of early TANGERINE DREAM's "kozmische" material, like "Zeit" or "Atem", and more recent electronica lovers eager for 90's quality ambient works in the vein of THE ORB, THE FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON or early AUTECHRE will surely be disappointed. Instead, "Ambient Monkeys" mainly consists in a continuous mixture of more or less new-age TD from the nineties, noodling, natural sonorities and animal sounds. Sometimes, attentive listeners will recognize a known title...

The point is, this environmental soundtrack was only used by the band before starting concerts to warm audiences up. These pieces were initially not meant to be released. However, on "public demand" by the fans, the Froeses finally made this available. So who is to blame?

In conclusion, was it worth it? Not really... The "music" will rarely catch the ears of both classic and 90's TANGERINE DREAM lovers. Only for fans of background ambient wanting to sonically dress their vegetal lounge or bathroom with a "nature" soundtrack...

4 stars The best "Dream Mixes" volume

Definitively the one to get. For the first time in the series, "The Past Hundred Moons" carries proudly its name: Going back deeper in the band's history to propose remixes of both modern and classic TANGERINE DREAM from the Schmoelling era and "Encore". 2 tracks are rearranged versions of the titles of the same names from the 1999 albums "Mars Polaris" and "Great Wall Of China", 6 are revisits from 1977-1984 studio or live TD, and 1 is a new composition by Edgar Froese. Recorded in 2000 and 2001, incorporating nineties' big-beat, drum'n'bass and even jungle approaches, these remixes are really refreshing and some even manage to bring a new youth to the source material!

The first half of the disc is nearly perfect. Longest track of the record, "Prima Time" is based on "Silver Scale", the first part of a 20 minutes suite often played live at concerts in 1980-1981, but not officially released until 1994 on the "Tangents" box set. Opening the album with such a confidential piece in TD's catalogue is quite audacious. Spacey and varied, the result is very cool. "Astrophobia (Red Supernova Mix)" keeps the threatening atmosphere of the original from "Mars Polaris". Its jungle beats and futuristic sonorities take you to a dark voyage into unknown spatial territories, while the last part is rather peaceful and contemplative. Then comes the best passage, "Stereolight". An intelligent, dynamic, well-crafted revisited fusion between the iconic pulsating pre-trance "Monolight" and the ending of "Desert Dream", both from the 1977 live album "Encore". Just listen, this track almost brings another youth to these vintage titles! Great, easily one of the best "Dream Mix" ever! "Diamonds and Dust" uses the well-known "Diamond Diary" frenetic sequence from the soundtrack album "Thief". On the contrary, this new version doesn't manage to offer enough variations for 9 minutes. A bit too long and repetitive.

Located in the middle of the disc, "Blue Spears" is the only novelty of the record. Composed by Edgar Froese, this soothing ambient piece turns a bit new-age and can remind at times the orientation taken by the band in the late 80's. Not too bad, but not remarkable either. "Meng Tian (Smart Machine Remix)" is a boosted-up version from a title of the "Great Wall Of China" soundtrack. The ambiance is faithful to the denomination, punchy, robotic and rocking! "Girl on the Stairs" is the English literal translation for "Das Mädchen auf der Treppe". The delicate "White Eagle" track was renamed so and slightly reworked for the corresponding German TV series "Tatort" episode. This time, the remix contains cool variations of the main theme. The disc ends with two concert classics from the Schmoelling era. "The Spirit of the Czar" is based on the first half of "Poland", peace and zenitude. The ender, "The Comfort Zone", revisits the last third of "Logos Part 1" last third. Not the best remix here but still spacey and pleasant.

"The Past Hundred Moons" represents what is expected from a "Dream Mixes" volume: Rearrangements of modern and vintage TANGERINE DREAM, studio, live and soundtracks, good choice of classic and lesser-known pieces ("Silver Scale", "Desert Dream"). Even if the 90's electronic sonorities are a few years late and despite a few lengthy passages, the music is overall convincing and refreshing.

Give it a try, even if you don't like post-Franke TANGERINE DREAM. You might be surprised. Very recommended to fans of TD's Schmoelling era, but also to those who grew up with the nineties' electronic beats. By the way, "Dream Mixes 3" can be also be a way for the youngster generations to discover what was this German pioneering band about...

3 stars Finally embracing the nineties

3.5 stars

Least worthy of its name, this "Dream Mixes" release is nevertheless one of the most interesting of the series. Contrarily to the first double compilation, this second volume features only two 1997 remixes from TD's recent albums, "Turn of the Tides" and "Goblins Club". All the other tracks are new compositions, 4 by Jerome Froese, and only 1 by Edgar.

After ten years of mediocre studio material where the band was searching for renewal, "Dream Mixes 2 - Timesquare" arrives as the long awaited disc, the one that can bring hope to the fans. At last, Froese and son are finally taking confidence on the 90's by (progressively) giving up the new-age orientation taken since the end of the 80's and adapting their music to the big-beat / techno / jungle drums and sonorities, while making the TANGERINE DREAM style evolving. Everything is not perfect yet, but this almost-studio opus do come as a welcomed surprise.

"Mobocaster" is a rearranged version of "Twilight Brigade" from "Turn of the Tides". An average track, relaxing but cheesy at times, which is not very surprising considering the source album. The spacey ambient "Jungle Jacula" contains a middle-eastern-ish ambiance and female vocalizations. A pleasant composition that can remind early FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON works. "Towards the Evening Star (Blue Gravity Mix)" is of course a remix of "Towards The Evening Star", the best track from TD's last album back then, "Goblins Club". Its big-beat drums and additional variations render the title even more cosmic. Overall a pretty cool remix. Concerning "Digital Sister", its jungle and trance atmospheres make it rather enjoyable.

However, the best novelty here is undoubtedly "Pixel Pirates". A lively and dreamy voyage aboard a spaceship between the planets! Considering the release period, this title foreshadows TANGERINE DREAM's next studio album, the good "Mars Polaris", and - with some imagination and more upbeat drums - could have been featured on the PlayStation WipeOut soundtracks. The rest of the record is more a mixed bag. Longest track of the record, "Culpa Levis" is also the only new composition by Edgar Froese here. Using female vocalizations again, these 10 minutes aren't bad but not really remarkable either, whereas the title track alternates nice and soapy passages.

For sure, "Dream Mixes 2" still contains some boring moments, but much fewer than on the previous releases. The middle of the album is the main interest. At last, TD's ten years dry inspiration period (since 1987) is coming to an end, Froese and son begin to takes the right direction.

One of their best nineties' releases, and, if I can say so, studio album, with "Mars Polaris" of course. Recommended if you enjoy, or want to discover worthwhile post-classic TANGERINE DREAM.

— First review of this album —
2 stars The source is beginning to dry up...

2.5 stars

Already the fifth volume of the "Dream Mixes" series. What "historical" compositions could possibly be revisited this time? And how many novelties? Well, believe it or not, whereas the precedent volumes featured some new material, all nine tracks from "DM V" are remixes! As the 1974-1984 albums studio and live material was quite reused in the previous opuses, Jerome Froese had dig up some TD's 80's soundtracks to find out something to remixed. Don't get me wrong, some of these movie scores are enjoyable, but they certainly did not meet the heights of the Baumann and Schomelling periods standards...

The ambient "The Return Of The Time" borrows parts from "Rubycon Part 1". A little deception, as the result is rather soft and never really lifts off. The intent of revisiting the golden-era material is great but... Why not a full reinterpretation of the originals, such as "Phaedra of Nottingham" or "Stratosfear '95"? All the next tracks will faithfully follow their source tune. "Flow Paths" sees a pleasant version of "Exit" enhanced with nice additions and sci-fi sonorities. "Scope Of Mind" is based on the first sequenced part of "Horizon", from the great "Poland" live double-album. The drums make this remix quite lively, although a bit lengthy. Same goes for "Meshwork", a revisit of "Flock" from "Das M'dchen auf der Treppe", more known reworked as "Flock Of Bluebirds" in the "Antique Dreams" compilation. Cool, but the rather non-melodic and repetitive original tune makes it difficult for a 6 minutes long remix to maintain interest. Now... Were there no better tune in the huge TANGERINE DREAM patrimony to choose than the black sheep of the icy synthetic 1982 album "White Eagle", a.k.a. "Midnight In Tula"? I can understand that this pre-video-game-ish melody was fun and kind of iconic in its own way back in the days, but the melody is quite irritating. "Code To Zero" is a little more bearable, mainly due to its retro-futuristic and robotic ambiance, sounding less dated. I admit I can stand more this remix than the original one, however it does not really change my general opinion about it.

Another curious choice is "Polar Circles", based on "Running Out Of Time" from 1989 "Miracle Mile" soundtrack. To be honest, the original track was not really worthwhile. This new track contains a few digressions, but it doesn't prevent the overall from sounding rather flat. On the contrary, with "Alien Sitcom", Jerome made a justified pick by digging up "Mojave End Title" from the good "Wavelength" soundtrack. Despite little messy moments, this intelligent remix also features nice rocking passages. "Hinterland" reuses "Horizon" again, this time the frenetically-sequenced ending part. Easily the most dynamic track of the disc with its big-beat drums, trance-like sections and some middle-eastern sonorities too. the ender, "Mombasa (Touareg Remix)", is simply based on... "Mombasa" from "Booster III", composed by Edgar Froese, and just released 1 year earlier. Definitely ambient and floating with its female vocalizations, this composition is enjoyable but not varied enough.

This fifth opus clearly shows the Dream Mixes formula beginning to falter. The choice of the source material is sometimes questionable and some worthwhile tracks are not fully reinterpreted. Nonetheless, the most important point is that, in 2010, the style is still stuck in the nineties, whereas the then current electronic music scene showed important evolutions during the 21st Century's first decade. TANGERINE DREAM's 1970-1984 material now deserves more modern reinterpretations.

Give it a try if you want, "DM V" has its moments after all, but I'd rather recommend Dream Mixes 3 or 4...

3 stars Mixes old with new

Fourth release of the "Dream Mixes" series, "DM 4" is overall a pleasant volume, accompanied this time by a few surprises. First, there is a certain amount of new material, sometimes supporting TANGERINE DREAM's "historical" compositions, but sometimes the opposite happens. Second, the tracks form a single 70 minutes long piece, which is appreciable. Third, like in the glorious days, the artwork features a photography by Monique Froese. Finally, and most interesting, the music ventures in some unusual "TD-remixing" territories.

The two first tunes are new compositions. "Losing The Perspective" is a short ambient spoken introduction, while "World Of The Day" can remind "Pilots of Ether Belt" from the good "Mars Polaris" at times, but is unfortunately not as inspired. "Perplex Parts" reuses themes from the "Tangram" album, with some cool additions. "Cosmic Merriment" is a whole new track that discretely borrows parts from the 3 first pieces of "Zeit", the DREAM's most radical and least melodic offering! These are "Birth Of Liquid Plejades", "Nebulous Dawn" and "Origin Of Supernatural Probabilities". Audacious and even more unexpected, as "Zeit" is Jerome's least favorite TD album. So, what does it sound like in 2003? Well, kind of trip-hop-y by moments... Not bad but a fully assumed revisit of these early iconic dark ambient/drone adventures in the 21st century should have been more interesting. Then comes the best passage of the record, "Messenger". Finally, a version of "Rising Runner Missed By Endless Sender" without Steve Joliffe's useless vocalizations... as it is fully instrumental. Although its nineties' big-beat drums are a bit caricatural and repetitive, this remix remains very nice.

With a few samples from "Ricochet", "Rebound 03" distillates a mysterious ambiance... Not unpleasant but overall too lengthy. "Floating Higher" is an enjoyable tune on the basis "Love On A Real Train" from "Risky Business", while "From Kiev With Love" is a cool and punchy rearrangement of "Kiew Mission" with a peaceful ending. I had great expectations for "Meta Morph Magic", the shortened remixed version of "Thru Metamorphic Rocks". This is in fact a little lazy and deceiving. Here, the raw original ramshackle is just reused... The sonority was groundbreaking in 1979, in 2003 it should have deserved a proper reworked and clean sound. The album ends with its longer track "The Metropolitan Sphere". With its surprising short acoustic opening, this new composition is calm and polite but not really remarkable.

"DM 4" features more novelties and digressions from the original material than "Dream Mixes 3" as well as some risk taking. This is one of the few Dream Mixes volume to revisit TD's "progressive rock" period (1978-1979) and, to a lesser extent, "Zeit". Furthermore, new material form nearly one third of the disc. However, the quality is not as homogeneous, as the novelties and revisits are uneven. Not mentioning the big-beat / drum'n'bass sonorities, at least, 5 years late...

Nonetheless, despite rather flat moments and lengthy passages, this fourth compilation do have good ideas, a few surprises and different ambiances. If you enjoyed "Dream Mixes 3" and "Mars Polaris", give it a listen.

Review by poito

3 stars Fans of electronic music love TG, and this album is one of their best accomplishments. It was recorded in a live show but the material comes from 1981, released in another album recorded live called Quichotte of rather local distribution. I don't know how much the material was reworked from that one, as the band reused and reworked parts of their former material in subsequent albums. This tells of the feeble compositional effort, but we all know this is not one of the trademarks of electronic music. Anyway, this may be one of the latest shows including Johannes Smoelling, who in my view saved TG from the total decline when Baumann left and introduced new ideas that helped the band to maintain an acceptable level, and probably won a new audience and should be blamed for the final touch they needed to be considered a legendary band. However, in early 80's the sound that initiated a new style and astonished everybody in mid-70's with the mythic albums Rubycon and Ricochet was no surprise anymore. Though TG evolved acceptably well with the albums Cyclone, Force Majeure, Tangram, and this Quichotte the music scene was moving at speed of light and they lost the audience they had borrowed from other styles in mid 70's. If you are a fan of electronic music and do not get bored listening once and again to lengthy hypnotic rhythms, this album is probably a must for you. The formula is however exhausted and spite of admitting I like the effect this music has on me, I cannot give it more than a 3-3.5.

3 stars For a while, this mythic band came out of minimalist math-rhythmic and spacy airs that dominated their production in the 70's and landed in planet Earth, they become human. New instruments, new members, Baumann has left the classic trio, and the new guys seemed to bring fresh air. It must have also spurred on Froese that woke up for a while and got out a bit of the talent they showed in Rubycon and Ricochet. Although there are some excerpts with the characteristic monotonous rhythmic background, the other instruments fly above without limits and add nice riffs, mainstream if you like, but creative and appealing, even catchy. Guitar sections craft excellent tunes, as in the first section of Thru Metamorphic Rocks. This album is a blow of fresh air in the declining trajectory of TG in late 70's.

Review by poito

2 stars From early 70's experimental noises to the sudden outburst of immortal brilliance in Rubycon and Ricochet, something must have happened and we will never know. The following albums Stratosphere and this Encore marked a slow decline, the muses had gone again and the composition was tired, stiff and lifeless, they were living on the ashes of past glories. This Encore has nothing new, just a few excerpts copied from earlier albums. Probably that's why they returned to the noisy stuff, They had emptied?. Probably it was the success with the music a la carte for movies that make them believe it was enough, if so, they were mistaken, obviously. Music for movies is not to listen, is to watch.

Review by poito

4 stars When the dreamy band had hit the streets with Rubycon and Ricochet, they immediately released this Stratosphere album, kind of follow-up to take advantage of the moment. The style keeps the same, but the material is let's say a bit more lazy. Although they keep progressing in the sound that is now much clearer, and the chain of arpeggios that make the powerful beating backgrounds in former albums is less prominent. For the first time there are empty spaces, rock style guitar riffs and floydian guitar backgrounds, and the melodies are not as ground breaking. They still preserve quite. Some moments are really excellent and as tantalizing as before, such as the album title track and the magnificent middle part in Invisible Limits. They recall their first spacy star wars epoch by introducing some spacy noisy whatever fragments that spoil the listen. Too bad they went nostalgic, because I think they had pressed the right key for a true evolution. Unfortunately, they went lazy afterwards and the change didn't materialize. Actually, they got stuck. This is probably the last original contribution of TD. They made some decent contributions in subsequent albums, but always building on past blocks.
