5 stars Great news!!! Tangerine Dream now added to Prog Archives. It had to be, they could in no way be dismissed for their contribution to this genre and Electronica of course. Tangram for me is the absolute summit musically of TD music. Released in 1980 and consists of two parts simply named Tangram part one and two. Both parts are stunning in terms of composition. There is a fine balance between synth and guitar work. OK Peter Baumann was no longer with them but so what the album with Johannes Schmoeling on perhaps upped the divsersity and tempo. The synth moments are crystal clear the melodies are definitely halucinogenic. No chemicals needed to trip on Tangram. There are the usual ' train' effects but as an album standing out on it's own it definitely qualifies for a five star rating. There were other TD albums as good but Tangram marked their peak from a creative standpoint.
