2 stars As far as I'm concerned; this "live" album is by far the least interesting one, the least beautiful, the least crafted of this superb band.

I could have understood that all time lovers can consider this "work" as a fine one; but to tell you the truth: as soon as the opener stars, one gets the dreadful dance and disco feel we were always willing to avoid.

This fantastic band was always able to avoid the stupidity of most of the ones we ALL loved during the eighties. But it was quite some years ago; and maybe (or surely) that the mix offered at this time was QUITE different from the gorgeous one we all have loved.

This album is not a complete mess of course: but for deep TD lovers, it can hardly be seen as a good work. This "Dream Encores" could have been another good TD album. But I can't considered it as such. It is just an average TD album, which shares some trunks of passion and average maestria. This is quite obvious, but as a whole, I also have to tell that the album is far from the great ones of the genre.

Is it all that relevant to make a cover from the superb "Eleanor Rigby". Not sure at all. Such an exercise was already performed with a better skilled band.

To be honest, this album has NOTHING to do with the wonderful "Tangerine Dream" we all know and love.

I have been reviewing an extremely bunch of their work so far (as I did for almost each band in my reviewing process). It is always difficult (hence easier) to comment each step of a band in his career; but frankly this "Dream Encores" is nothing great for sure.

This late nineties album is just an average TD production. Nothing more. Two stars.
