3 stars Tangerine Dream is a band unique to me. Why? In a way, this is not the band where I'm a great fan of it but I occasionally play the music for a break from other kind of music. To me, the music of Tangerine Dream (as so the case with Klaus Schulze, Kitaro, Vangelis) gives a feeling of peacefulness. I sometimes followed the news about this band whom I was familiar with through "Cyclon" album where "Bent Cold Sidewalk" was featured. It's truly my best favorite song from any song of Tangerine Dream. In the case of "Force Majeure", Jolliffe quites the band and there was basically just a team of two : the Froese/Franke collobaoration. The fans were quite happy with the fact that this album remarked the return of the band into the right track. Influenced by the predecessor album, the band moves away from the "electronic" approach and giving guitars and flutes on some occasion. The album itself sounds dynamic to me. As far as improvement concern, you can expect nothing as this album still maintain the style and sound of previous albums. It's probably the band had achieved plateau condition and was not rejuvenated properly. I can see that the band desperately trying to expand their music horizon through what so called progressive movement through relatively long keyboard and guitar solo.

Overall, this is a good album even for those of you who are new to the band. There is nothing complex for newbie to starts off with this album. For long die hard fans, this might be a MUST as the band returned to the original style. Keep on proggin' ..!
