Finnegan's Wake is excellent. It even has a track called Resurrection Of The Spirit that appears to sample part of Ricochet

One of the things I like about modern TD is the use of lead guitar. Another album that I'm keen on is View From A Red Train. I think they have recovered their mojo to some extent although they are now more a family project than an actual band. Froese and Froese.

Also I don't understand why Purgatorio is so overlooked. Its stunning imo.

^ View From A Red Train  - LeviathanApprove

Could not agree with you more, the guitar work is out of this world.Not sure if you have heard Edgar Froese's double disc Orange Light Years compilation, some great guitar work there also. I particularly like the live line up for the Madcap/Red Train era, will be buying Finnegan's Wake very shortly!

I fully understand what Jean means. I will give an example: When I hear the second part of  "Rubycon" I imagine a man galloping on a white horse on a sandy beach, fleeing from the grim reaper riding behind him on a skeletal steed and swinging his scythe. I don't get mental pictures like that from modern Tangerine Dream.

Well, I did not say it was I fleeing from the grim reaper, just some man. But I know what you mean. I am not that old yet,  but I am beginning to feel some wear and tear on my body too. That's something not even the best yoga exercises can help against, though they certainly slow down the aging process a bit.

Going to have to go with the majority vote this time.  Stratosfear is the first track I heard by TD that got me hooked.
