Jerome Froese biography
Jerome FROESE is an Berlin based electronic musician known most famously as the son of Edgar FROESE and a member of TANGERINE DREAM in the period from 1989 to 2006.

He was exposed to music via his father in various ways from his earliest days, one of them being featured on the album cover for TANGERINE DREAM's ATEM album in 1973 when he was two years old. Jerome started his musical career playing primarily guitars and keyboards and later on in the 80s started playing drums. His experience eventually featured him first time on a record on TANGERINE DREAM's 'Lily On The Beach Album' in 1989 on which he played the guitar on 'Radio City'. After the departure of Paul HASLINGER from the band, Jerome became a full member from the album 'Melrose', onward until 2006 when he pursued solo work and other personal projects like LOOM which he formed with another ex TANGERINE DREAM member Johannes SCHMOELLING.

Besides Berlin school sound, FROESE has been also influenced by other dance and electronic music which he also distributed under the name TDJ Rome and in his Dream Mixes series of TANGERINE DREAM albums which have more techno or house elements to them. Some of his work though he describes as guitartronica which can be recommended to fans of prog electronic genre or even the more relaxed ambient work of Robert FRIPP.

4 stars It sounds as it should: a sort of post 90s Tangerine Dream album, out of the soundtracks period and with more guitar respect to the albums recorded with daddy Edgar. While I'm writing I'm listening to "Decoding With Celine" which is a rock track. Not heavy, of course, but even if real drums disappeared from the Tangerine Dream world after Klaus Schulze, this drone is very well programmed and the absence of a physical drummer is not a problem.

A very good album, better than many Tangerine Dream albums, even many of those featuring Jerome Froese. The reason is probably to be found in the absence of Edgar Froese, who has of course influenced his son since his very young age, but leaving him the freedom of expressing himself out of the influence of the old Froese gives its fruits.

This is a fresh album, sometimes tendent to newage atmospheres, enjoyable not only as background music as many electronic albums are, but with consistent melodies, an accurate choice of sounds (the minimum you can expect from who became half of the Tangerine Dream), and most of all a good presence of guitars, also acoustics, 12 strings, and who knows what else.

There are two "longest" tracks, scoring more than 10 minutes. Apart of them the average track length is about half of that.

There's also space for some little hints of Kosmische Musik, an electronic choir in Mike Oldfield style, kinds of percussion, so a lot of things that makes it different from the TD output even without taking distances from the father's imprinting.

As I have written, better than many TD albums.

4 solid stars
