3 stars It's probably because of the addiction to soundtracks that even when they have the possibility to make a new studio album without the constraint of images to comment, TD decide to adopt a concept and release an album of short (for their standard) tracks each dedicated to parks in the world.

The result is not bad, surely better than some soundtracks of the same period. There are highlights and even if the sounds used and the compositions sound very 80s, the album flows well.

Diferently from the pink period, this is an album that can be left playing in the background. It's so easy that doesn't require much attention. However there is a trio of tracks in the middle that deserve a bit more attention : Tiergarten, Zen Garden and Le Parc.

There's few more to say. It's just good electronic music that doesn't say anything about the band and what is clearly missed is the use of square waves sounds that's almost disappeared and survives only in "The Cliffs Of Sidney" that sounds "already listened".

In brief it's a non-essential album. I would rate it one star less becauise of the very insignificant sleeve design but it's good enough for the average 3 stars.

octopus-4 | 3/5 |
