Heart of the Matter
4 stars Well, this is Tangerine Dream live, possibly you know how the rite proceeds. First, it takes a good while to build up the entire atmosphere that is required in order to get every faithful included in the mantra. There's some opening synth chords followed by some still understated rhytmic sequencing, then the main symphonic lines by the keyboards kick in, the serious percussion takes charge underpinning the ride, and by the time you come to hear that agonic, orgasmic, extatic (tribal, maybe?) vocals, you are so into the bloody thing, that you can't escape, nor even have the desire to do it.

If you are looking for a sample of the goods, try "Alchemy Of The Heart". Nice guitar solo!

Heart of the Matter | 4/5 |
