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"...

Force Majeure
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by poito

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.

Encore (Live 1977)
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

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.

Stratosfear

Review by poito

3 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.

Ricochet
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by poito

5 stars Oh yeah, they were there. Twenty years since I've listened to this album for the last time. And certainly not because I didn't like it, I reminded it as one of the greatest. Time flies when tons of music are knocking the door waiting for a kind ear to let them in. But they were there, as fresh and powerful as the first day. Ricochet is one of the most creative albums of the 70's, probably the music has no the complexity of canterburians, the virtuosity of symphonic masters, or the academicism of fusioners. What was then? Well, it was a bit of all that, but above all, it was tantalizing, hypnotic, and powerful; you can't leave the room when this album is on. Most other music will have some trouble when the years go through, but Ricochet stands as if done for you yesterday night. No matter your favorite stream, it is for you. Trust me. It has not aged a bit. It rivals with Rubycon for the climax of the band. The striking thing is that in less than two years the band was able to release the four most creative albums of their career, and at least two all-time masterpieces, an impressive record. Only two years earlier they were recording noises for space horror movies, and suddenly they were shocking the world with electronic yes, but flourished melodies in a bombastic style that will stick in your brain forever. So powerful it is.

Zeit 'Largo In 4 Movements'
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by poito

1 stars If you like sci-fi you sure will recognize the sounds poured in this album. This belongs to the early epoch of this mythic band, when they were catching space ghosts out there. I must have two or three tapes by Klaus Schulze somewhere, a former member of the band, I used them to close the old crazy parties in my flat, when my friends had already gone and only the people nobody knew, gate crashers attracted by the noise and fun, wanted to take my room by assault and stay there forever, then it was time to put one of these in the cassette player. Magic reaction, everybody begun to march (or they crawled? can't remember) back to the streets, and I got my house back and empty. That's what this music is good for. Did I say music? Sorry. But it is useful. I mean it. And someone may like it, I did it sometime, or it probably wasn't me. Sure, it wasn't me.

Phaedra
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by poito

2 stars Phoedra is probably the first album that hit the international scene for this mythic band of the 70's. Masters of synth electronic music, this album meant the end of an epoch in their career, or the start of a new one if you like. The difference with the next album Rubycon is enormous. You have here an essentially ambient music, neatly spacy, that puts you out there amongst starships, galactic monsters and laser guns, elegantly though, but there is little compositional work, that is the main difference with the new Rubycon's era. If you heard about TG, you probably are familiar with the later, this one you won't like it. Maybe one may get hooked for a while in the hypnotic rhythms and clouds, but that's it. I remember when I bought the tape nearly 30 years ago, I did it in the hope that it would be similar to Rubycon, Ricochet or Stratosphere, but I got disappointed. Too much star wars for me. This is for fans of electronic music, which I do not see as Prog though I respect other views. Anyway, by no means this has similar quality or style to Rubycon, as it appears from the ratings. Don't get confused, they are totally different and for different audience. Phoedra is a minor work, only for hardcore fans of electronic music, and possibly overrated because it meant the birth of masterpieces like Rubycon and Ricochet. But get ready to bore, better if you skip it and go directly to those.

Rubycon
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by poito

5 stars Mythic band of the 70's. The grandeur of TG was that spite of the artificial synth-based sound they were able to turn heads of youngsters of an epoch and listen to their music, no matter their Prog, Heavy, Jazz, or whatever musical orientation. Obviously, not all their work had the same effect, but their masterpieces did. That's the case of this Rubycon, probably the climax ever of synth music. Many would think of TG concerts as boring shows where a few guys behind a bunch of synths and cables pressed a key every now and then. This probably was so in this album too, but the music is nothing like the improvisational spacy clouds they abused of earlier. Rubycon is not even close, it has a notable variety of tunes mingling smoothly, in and out of the tide of powerful sound that these guys were creating from who knows where. It might have been the influence of math composers like Steve Reich, whatever, but the tunes were something new, never heard before, ground breaking indeed. Rubycon stands out of the rest of their production; it meant a gigantic step ahead in their trajectory. They jumped from ambient, spacy, extremely simple composition in the former album Phaedra to a completely different level; only two 18 min long magnificent tracks full of blending tunes mostly keys and synths, but also included a few drum bits and fabulous slow but wall-shaking guitar riffs, fighting the overwhelming pounding background for a space in the air. This album is precursor of machine music, space music, math music, and never matched. I had not listened to it for more than 20 years, and I have to admit it has aged perfectly, even better, it has not aged at all, it is music out of time. Believe me. A masterpiece. If you don't get immediately captivated, probably you are dead, dear.

Exit
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by Progfan97402

4 stars Exit is the third album with Johannes Schmoelling, their previous album was a soundtrack to Thief, a movie starring James Caan (I never seen the movie, as those kind of movies, apparently a crime movie, never really appealed to me). Since this came right after Thief, I get the feeling the band wasn't in the mood for side-length pieces (but they went back to that on their next album White Eagles). Kiev shows that early '80s Tangerine Dream sound, there's a lady speaking, I guess, Ukrainian (Kiev is in Ukraine). I also noticed a synth sound that sounded exactly like the intro to Michael Jackson's "Beat It', which meant the same synth was used, the Synclavier II, but, if I remember right, the band was less than happy with the Synclavier II, so it was never considered a major synth in their gear. I guess this album dated from the Cold War, that only makes sense to record a song bearing a title of a major (then-Soviet) city. Much of the album is rather upbeat, compared to Tangram, as clearly shown on "Chorozon" and "Network 23". "Remote Viewing" more or less hearkens back to '70s Tangerine Dream, especially with the sequencers, and does capture somewhat the atmosphere their '70s, even though it's recorded on newer (for 1981) equipment. It's a rather accessible album, that's for sure. If you have an aversion to that early '80s sound, and prefer the mid '70s classics, you probably won't find this enjoyable, but I find Exit rather good, and worth having.

Stratosfear
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by Progfan97402

5 stars In 1989 I was 16 years old, I first heard of Tangerine Dream. I heard some of their music played on public radio, and I was wondering what the fuss was all about. They were likely playing something off Optical Race. My knowledge of them were spotty, but then I learned they had albums out in the 1970s, but the only one I was aware of shortly after was Stratosfear. I didn't realize until 1994 that their debut appeared in 1970 (Electronic Meditation, which is not particularly electronic or meditative, but guitar and organ-driven Krautrock). So I had a bit of an aversion to Tangerine Dream, but in 1994 I took a chance, figuring it's the 1970s albums I should be looking for, and bought Stratosfear, and ever so glad I did. Since buying all their other 1970s albums, it was clear that on Stratosfear the band was attempting a more melodic approach. The title track clearly demonstrates that, sequencer still play a big role, but in a more catchy way than before. I noticed quite a bit of the ARP Pro-Soloist being used here, even though one isn't even credited at all. "Big Sleep in the Search of Hades" is definitely less "commercial". Nice use of harpsichord and Mellotron flutes, but some really creepy tron choirs are also used as well as the Pro-Soloist. This piece really blows me away! "3 AM at the Border of the Marsh from Okefenokee" starts off rather calm, then you get blasted with tron choir, before slow paced sequencers creep in with tron flute. "Invisible Limits" starts off calm, the sequencers kick in at a high pace, before going into a more tripped out passage, and a calm piano passage towards the end. I was so happy to get Stratosfear, it totally changed my attitude on the band, hardly the "New Age" fluff I dismissed them as (to be fair, I felt they slipped into mediocrity by the mid 1980s, Underwater Sunlight is the most recent TD album own). While many describe Stratosfear as an attempt at something more "commercial", I really don't feel it that way. In fact there is plenty of stuff that would scare off mainstream listeners. Mainstream listeners who prefer Underwater Sunlight, Optical Race, Lily on the Beach, and such release would likely be scared of Stratosfear (never mind Zeit which would likely make them coil in terror). To me this is nothing short of a classic, and was the first TD album I bought, and without a doubt an album I can easily recommend.

Le Parc
Tangerine Dream Progressive Electronic

Review by Progfan97402

2 stars When I say how Tangerine Dream was quick to enter the 1980s with Force Majeure, Edgar's solo album Stuntman, and Tangram, I am obviously referring to the early '80s, more in tuned with the era perhaps up to 1983. 1985's Le Parc, their last non-soundtrack album with Johannes Schmoelling clearly shows TD full-on 1980s. I mean the era of the decade people most stereotypically associate with that decade: drum machines, digital synthesizers such as the Yamaha DX-7, that sort of thing. The sequencers have been completely ditched, I guess the band was happier having more lightweight and portable gear. The album is named Le Parc, and no surprise each song title should bear the name of certain parks around the world, except for the title track, which became the theme song for a short-lived TV series called Streethawk (imagine Airwolf if it were a motorcycle). I really don't know what to say, it screams '80s. The Streethawk theme song no doubt was inspired by Sylvester Levay's theme to Airwolf, that similar '80s electronic vibe. "Zen Garden", unsurprisingly has a rather Japanese feel to it. On some songs, I was rather surprised to hear that '70s Solina string synths among that '80s sounds. To be honest, it doesn't sound too distinct from incidental music heard on movies and television, but then the band had been scoring for quite a few films by this time. To this day, I find this just plain OK. I mean, put Le Parc up against classics from a decade before like Phaedra, Rubycon, and Ricochet and this totally crashes and burns. I hate to be so hard on the band, but this was a big reminder that, when I was around 16, at the end of the '80s when I first heard of Tangerine Dream, I failed to understand what the big deal about these guys were, because I was hearing stuff like this (or their following albums up to Optical Race) on a local public radio station. I still own the album, but this band simply fell victim to the 1980s. It's like they could have backed Phil Collins by this point. It sold tons better than Zeit, I'm sure of that.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
