2 stars As well as Mark Isham with "Thumbelina" and the Clannad with "The Angel And The Soldier Boy", also Tangerine Dream have released an album made of few instrumentals on one side and the A side of the album filled with the same tracks as background music for a fairytale.

The fairytale is read by Kathleen Turner and if you are not interested in this very old horror story (as many fairitales are) which was later adapted and modified by the Grimms, we can move directly to the B side.

The music is more mellow than usual. Very melodic, not repetitive, quite newage. If it's good to background a narrator it has to be good as background music in general. The intersting thing is that I usualy see Froese & co. as sequencer geniuses, but this time we can hear piano, major chords, passages maybe a bit trivial, but not bad at all.

There's not much more to say, the B side is a good newage album with a touch of progressive, with some little highlights like "The Countryside" which is quite a good track. It sounds like the Greek keyboardist Yanni who was making this kind of things in the same period.

2 PA stars, but quite nice.
