3 stars Many say that Cyclone shows a new musical direction in Tangerine Dream career probably due to special guests as Steve Joliffe. In fact it's the first time the band decided to add vocals to their music. To experimental space music they turn to electronic rock but with merit. Only the last title can remind the previous recordings, mainly the Ricochet and Stratosphere era with its long instrumental landscapes played on analog synthesizers and punctuated by sequencers. The last minutes of Madrigal Meridian are distinguished by a sumptuous melody for harpsichord and flute. "Bent Cold Sidewalk" announces the color of the album. It introduces vocals in a plaintive tone accompanied by a very catchy instrumental section. The melody is very deep and beautiful. "Rising Runner"... is a more dynamic and rock affair but very original, spacey with strange stressed vocals

I can only recommend this album for those who want to see an other and great side of the band unless you are definitely in cold with vocals.
