Yes Progbethyname. Those years were indeed filled with many great compositions but it was a noted shift towards shorter more 'accessible works', for lack of a better word. Many were film soundtracks released as Albums.
But it was quite the change from "Atem' , 'Cherokee Lane', ' 3am at The Border Of The Marsh...' 'Bent Cold Sidewalk'

Not sure how much the record co. had a hand in all that...
I have heard tales of TD doing releases to fulfill Lp quotas in order to get out of contracts.

I
do love Firestarter- a classic, Thief, LeParc, White Eagle, Exit
After that line up changes growing from 3 to 5, 6 ,7  band members is when I started to lose interest.
With respect though for Edgar, nothing can stay the same. It gets old if it does.
But that early time period was in my formative musical years and I treasure the TD of then.

Yup. The exodus of Peter Bauman really shifted Td sound to a more accessible nature, in
Large part for the band doing film scores. I even love the movie score for LEGEND. Guilty pleasure. Lol
Anyway. Agree with a lot of what you said and for me HYPERBOREA will always stand the test of time. Still in love with that BLUE YEAR masterpiece. :)
Gimmie my headphones now!!! 🎧🤣
