4 stars Probably one of the best TANGERINE DREAM release from the FRANK FROEZE HASSLINGER era, it's a fact that it sounds a bit eighties ( comparing to RUBYCON for instance ) but the production is good, not flashy, and the music is tasteful , inspired and adventurous, technology being used to serve music. For sure , the album peaks with the two parts of SONG OF THE WHALE with clever sequencer patterns , dazzling colourful guitar chorus and dreamy stirring piano parts. It's a contrasting and tasteful music for the mind even if not as weird and introspective as in early releases like ATHEM or ZEIT. Even if they don't peak the same level, the four other pieces are good too, DOLPHIN DANCE is a bit more mainstream but still with solid texture, RIDE ON THE RAY ranks among the best band pieces, still with guitar proeminence, SCUBA SCUBA displays a misty and iced landscape crossed by an hypnotic and infectious rytmic, and seems to end far too soon.UNDERWATER TWILIGHT concludes with a classical DREAM piece. This record is a good introduction for all those wanting to discover this unique and unforgotable band. I hesitate between 4 and 5 stars, i give 4,5 stars
