1 stars I can imagine a director looking for a soundtrack for his new movie. He asks Tangerine Dream that in this period are making almost only soundtracks. I can imagine Edgar Froese digging into a closet and finding a tape with some spare recordings, incomplete ideas, the kind of things that an artist puts somewhere to be reused.

This is probably how an unusual number of 1 minute long instrumentals finished to be recorded on this album. The director added some of his own so it's neither a full Tangerine Dream recording and the only reason to own it is only because it's a rarity: The album was just a patchwork of short ideas and for what I know the movie itself was a "flop".

There's one good reason to have it. It has sold so few copies that today it's a rarity, a collector item.

The music inside is not too bad. You can put it in the background while you are cooking. You won't be disturbed, but there is nothing to put your attention on, also because there's no sense in putting the attention on a 30 seconds track.

As collector item it would deserve 2 stars, but the patchwork characteristic and the inclusion of forgettable non-TD tracks makes it less interesting even for a collector.
