So, today I bought Tangerine Dream - Exit LP, and I think it's pretty...well, trippy and weird! I kinda like it....what other albums are worth getting? I saw about 5 or 6 other TD records at the store I went to....yes, even Ricochet, but I didn't get that one! If someone can list the essentials, I'll be happy! Cheers.

Check out Phaedra, Rubycon, Stratosfear and Tangram. You should also dig for Klaus Schulze anyway - Dune, Timewind, Irrlicht, Mirage and Moondawn.

This list is missing "Angst" (and everyone should watch the film afterwards and realise how much of a talentless rip off Gaspar No has always been.)

It depends what you're looking for... All the way until the band got signed to VIRGIN, the band had a more chaotic and I'd say darker sound that I personally love. The double album 'Zeit' for instance is a masterpiece, albeit not one you can easily listen to. After 'Phaedra', things got more 'normal' so to speak but still, you can listen to their stuffs all the way 'til the early 80's. Then new-age type of keyboards took over and that was the end for me...

Zeit is definitely their masterpiece. I like the Zelda music they started making during the Virgin years, but Zeit is where it's at. The peak of their career.

This right here!! Electronic Meditation is great too, very different, more like Saucerful Of Secrets-era Floyd or Ash Ra Tempel with no vocals which is another A+ and the rest of the "pink years" stuff (Atem and Alpha Centauri) are great. Phaedra, Rubycon and the Virgin years are also great. I haven't ventured much beyond the classic era however.

huge TD fan here. i love almost everything theyve done, even the super cheesy, later years (90's, dream roots, etc). theyve had a huge impact on me, musically and even on a personal level too.

I became a big fan through their soundtracks like SORCERER, THIEF, THE KEEP, and even James Glickenhaus' THE SOLDIER. SORCERER's probably my favorite, plus some of the live records/boots. "The Virgin Years" set is a really nice buy for beginners. The stuff I've heard from Schulze's "La Vie Electronique" collections is excellent too.

You'll definitely want to check out Klaus Schulze as well, and perhaps a little Popul Vuh. And this is pretty obvious but Cluster as well if you haven't already.

For contemporary stuff you might want to try some of the more ambient Nadja collaborations, the ones with Troum, Atavist and Fear Falls Burning are particularly great. And while not synth based, Expo 70 have a similar kind of vibe on their records.....

Phaedra and Zeit are musts, electronic meditation its kinda cool if you are into more noisy stuff. If you like TD, you should check Klaus Schulze and ash ra temple

Phaedra, Rubycon and Stratosfear are the peak.

Also try: Maeror Tri, Jaaportit, Neptune Towers (TD tribute) and K.K. Null's longer pieces.

Everything up to (and including) Exit is awesome. After that it goes downhill fast.

Didn't notice anyone mentioning Cyclone in particular. The song Madrigal Meridian alone justifies the albums existence!
