Why did you buy White Eagle and Exit?
"You know what uranium is, right?
It’s this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

Exit because it had Kiew Mission and it tripped me out and White Eagle because of this:

Depends what you want, if it's more stuff like White Eagle & Exit I'm not sure I can help. If you want what would be considered their classic Berlin School stuff go for

Phaedra
Ricochet
Stratosfear
Rubycon

If you want their earlier more experiment psyche drone stuff

Zeit
Atem
Ian

Exit is one of my favorite TD albums (it happened to be my introduction to them 30 years ago). That and White Eagle were recorded by the Franke, Froese, Schmoelling line-up.
 
I'm not sure how large your budget is, but at the very least you want the other albums by the same line-up. The ones I would acquire first: Tangram, Thief, Wavelength, Poland.
 
Pergamon – Live at Palast der Republik (1980) — the first studio live album
 
Tangram (1980) — the first FFS studio recording
 
Thief (1981) — an essential album, the first FFS original soundtrack, with a sound very close to Exit as it more or less utilizes the same sonic palette
 
Logos – Live at the Dominion (1982) — second FFS live album, some of the music turned up on the band's soundtrack of The Keep
 
Hyperborea (1983)
 
Wavelength (1983) — a brilliant score with fantastic sounds and a unique remix of "Remote Viewing" from Exit, called "Sunset Drive"; this was released last year as a remaster with restored artwork, new liner notes and much improved sound
 
Poland – The Warsaw Concert (rec. 1983, rel. 1984) — hands down, one of the greatest live albums of all time — four original suites of awe-inspiring music with melodies to spare, and some of the best sequences they ever laid down
 
Le Parc (1985) — more contemporary sounding but just as compositionally integral as its predecessors — also the final recording by the FFS line-up (Johannes Schmoelling left, to be replaced by Paul Haslinger on 1986's Underwater Sunlight, another classic TD album)
 
You mentioned you also like "Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares," so naturally you need the entirety of Phaedra, the title suite of which is among TD's most famous excursions.
 
I'm going to assume you'll be swallowed whole by the immersive brilliance that is Tangerine Dream, and you'll eventually want three other great studio albums of the '70s: Rubycon (1975), Stratosfear (1976), and Force Majeure, which ranks highly with man non-TD fans as well. All of these can be readily listened to in HD on YouTube.

I don't know. I haven't heard those. I only heard Phaedra and Rubycon, and they were very rewarding.

Listen to this ^ guy - he is wise.
One thing I'd like to add is: please go see the live vids of Ricochet on ze JooToob. Absolutely stunning.

Just buy anything from 83- down to 68. Special mention to Madcap's Flaming Duty from the 2000's Plus

You cannot really go wrong and Thief was agreat soundtrack sround the release of Exit.

Froese's solos - Aqua, Stuntman etc from the 70's were solid too.

Tangram for the complete package :-)

Phaedra

Rubycon

On the side you might try Edgar Froese's "Metropolis" (Dbl Vinyl Lp)

They most certainly are. I'll just add two personal faves. 

Green Desert for the Berlin school list and
Alpha Centauri for more experiment drone stuff

Yes more Alpha Centauri people!!!

Though I'm not entirely sure that's what the op is looking for.
Shame though, it's probably their best album along with Atem, Rubycon, Ricochet, Force Majeure and Phaedra. The bootleg box set is also essential TD. Let's you know just how powerful they were as a live act back in the 70s....and it's pretty much all new stuff that you won't find on any of their studio releases.
