Stratosfear has the lamest title but sure is my favorite.
Dig the other tracks too, except for the Whale Song.

good choices...I picked "Cloudburst Flight", one of my favorites by them.  I like all of these but haven't heard Hyborea

Cloudburst Flight was the first I ever heard of TD, so it gets my vote for entirely sentimental reasons, but I do love all of these tunes.
If I remember correctly I was drunk as a skunk - throwing up in a bed of tulips during the first part of the tune and then calmed down by the music proceeded to stretch out on the lawn and envelope myself in the magic that is TD. Never looked back since.

LOL

Tangerine Dream is very calming at times. Approve

I like a lot of music they have made in the last 10 years. For me Purgatorio is one of their very greatest albums. I like the Booster series as well

the last Tangerine Dream studio album I can stand is "Hyperborea" and after that the live recording "Poland". from then on I totally lose interest in them.

my choice goes to "Stratosfear". my favorite is "Rubycon" though, followed by "Alpha Centauri" and "Atem" (which is German for "Breath",  by the way)

LOLLOLClap

Force Majeure is a superb album, for sentimental reasons I would have to choose Tangram parts 1 & 2, something about recreational herb and mountain gorges with it being played full tilt dare I say about 34 years ago now, man i am getting old!

that is understandable to be honest.  I love Le Parc and Underwater Sunlight and quite like Tyger but this is a very different TD to Poland and earlier. They started dabbling with a more 'commercial approach' and were clearly influenced by New Age music at the time. Ironically though their album sales plummeted and Froese was last man standing after Franke, Schmoelling and Haslinger  had deserted the ship.

You should however check out Kyoto. This was recorded in Japan about 1983 but didn't get a release until 10 years or so ago. I think its one of their best.

Uhhh I just had a memory flash of that night......not only did I puke like a supermodel, but the content was chilliDead Dangerous combo right there...

Force Majeure went on to become my first real TD love, and I still to this day love it like a small dog. Funny thing is that I have come to adore the preceding period equally (if not more), the esoteric floating, abstract and spacious TD - the one that produced Alpha Centauri (my personal fave), Atem, Rubycon and Ricochet. These seem a million miles away from the melodic touch of Force Majeure, but I love them all the same. 
Recently I've also been getting into Phaedra, an album I didn't care much for the first time around - and now that seems downright strange to me as it bridges these two TD periods brilliantly.

I don't think so. what I looked for in Tangerine Dream was exploring strange soundscapes, but they turned into a rock band with an accent on synthesizers. don't think I have not heard any of their newer stuff; I have. but that is not what I expect of Tangerine Dream.

what interests me though is their "Finnegan's Wake" project, if only to see, or rather hear, how that incomprehensible book can be transformed into music

^ Will have to check out " Finegan's Wake" project, sounds very interesting. Incidentally Madcap's Flaming Duty has vocals by Chris Hausl and all lyrics are directly taken from literal works of William Blake, Percy B Shelly, Walt Whitman,Ralph Emerson to name a few. Thorsten Quaeschning helped put the music together with the honourable Mr. Froese. Best vocal adaptation to TD music IMO.

Stratosfear is a unique album for them.  They were never that tight and melodic in such a short space.  Maybe their later work was melodic but it seemed to have a different flavor.

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.

I'm getting too old to be fleeing from the grim reaper, well he's going to get me . I'll go quietly

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.
