CD Reviews
Blue Years Studio Albums 1985-1987
Review by Gary Hill
This is a brand new four-CD set from Tangerine Dream. It collects four individual albums.

Green Desert
Review by Gary Hill
If you like your prog with lots of keyboards and no vocals, this might well be one of your favorite albums. The music here is quite strong and comparisons to Pink Floyd are (at times) warranted.

Le Parc
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a musical exploration of a number of parks in different parts of the world. Each track, like each park, I assume, has its own distinctive flavor and character.

Madcap’s Flaming Duty
Review by Gary Hill
Tangerine Dream have released a new album for 2007. It’s one of their few releases to feature vocals, and is arguably the best of the “voice oriented” discs.

Paradiso
Review by Gary Hill
Those who follow Tangerine Dream have come to expect one thing consistently from them – a sense of experimentation and change. This disc is certainly one of those experimental moments.

Quantum Gate
Review by Gary Hill
This album finds Tangerine Dream landing heavily in the keyboard oriented electronic sound for which they were often known.

Quantum Gate / Quantum Key
Review by Gary Hill
This new double disc set includes not just the latest album from Tangerine Dream, but also the EP that preceded it.

Quantum Key
Review by Gary Hill
This is a recent EP from Tangerine Dream. The story behind this and the album that followed is an intriguing one since it was a path started by Edgar Froese and realized after his death by his wife and his musical cohorts.

Rockoon
Review by Steve Alspach
Tangerine Dream started in the early 1970s as a keyboard-based trio. Their early efforts were quite exploratory, examining the range of sounds and effects of the then-new electronic technology.

The Official Bootleg Series Volume Three: The Ford Auditorium, Detroit, March 1977 & The Regent Theatre, Sydney, February 1982
Review by Gary Hill
You can likely figure out what this is about by reading the title. Each concert is on two CDs.

The Official Bootleg Series, Vol. 1: Reims Cathedral, December 1974 & Mozartsaal, Mannheim October 1976
Review by Gary Hill
The title of this set really goes a long way toward telling what this is.

The Official Bootleg Series: Volume Two: Palais des Congres, Paris March 1978 & Palast der Republik, East Berlin, January 1980
Review by Gary Hill
This massive set of live Tangerine Dream is part of a series.

Tyger
Review by Gary Hill
This disc from Tangerine Dream is quite an intriguing one. It's definitely different from a lot of the catalog.

Under Cover
Review by Gary Hill
The concept of bands doing albums of covers seems to be a trend that’s gotten popular in the last decade.

More...
Underwater Sunlight
Review by Gary Hill
This album from Tangerine Dream is focused on the world that exists underwater. While this has the same electronic keyboard based sounds you expect from the band, there is a lot more guitar here.

Tangerine Dream - Tony Palmer's Film of Tangerine Dream Live at Conventry Cathedral 1975
Review by Gary Hill
How you feel about this video probably depends a lot on how you read the title. If you see the title as "Tangerine Dream - Live at Coventry Cathedral 1975" there's a good bet you are going to be disappointed.
