Phaedra, Rubycon and Stratosfear are the peak.



I got the 3CD 74-78 set with these not so long ago. Peerless stuff 30+ years later.

Sometimes I feel like a dumb twat for not being familiar with albums like Zeit that supposedly influenced a shitload of stuff I really like. Its in my parents collection of records too, should really check it out properly.

Great band, really love Phaedra but my favorite is Alpha Centauria and the ep Ultima Thule part one and two, such great deep space prog/ambient. One of the only bands to really capture this sound properly along with former member Klaus Shulze and the album Time Wind.

2011 three CD set that collects together the five LPs that Tangerine Dream recorded for Virgin Records between 1974 and 1978. Includes albums Phaedra, Rubycon, Ricochet, Stratosfear and Cyclone. These five highly influential albums are augmented by rare single releases and seven inch edits, as well as two rarely heard contemporary radio adverts.


Holy crap... great find!

The Sorcerer s/t and Ricochet are both excellent albums too. Edgar Froese' solo stuff is of a similarly high standard.

I loved Phaedra and some of the other stuff I've heard like that Poe album were great as well. Phaedra is one of the best ambient albums I've ever heard.

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


I love 'Cyclone' - very underrated and an album of eternal debate between fanatics of the band - but the experiment was successful IMHO.

TD sucker here, I love almost everything this band done since 1970 up to 'Tyger' (1988)

the band passed through many stages and every stage has something fro everyone:

1970 - 1974: the experimental trippy period, and for many their best era.

1974 - 1979: their classic period, clearly synths / electronics based, with the classic milestone albums - influencing everyone in the genre

1980 - 1984: even more structured pieces but still great

1984 to let's say 1990: more 'new age' and lighter mood but with two good albums IMHO: 'underwater sunlight' and 'tyger'

edit: 'Exit' should be the real 'Blade Runner' soundtrack - this thing by my compatriot (Vangelis) it's wimpy in some tracks.

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+


Precisely the reason I should really get this one ASAP, immediately heard that cosmic jam thing la Ash Ra Tempel. Always liked Phaedra, Rubycon and Stratosfear very much, and should revisit their earlier stuff, that was a bit hard to digest some years back.

But I'm even more a Schulze man myself...!

Oh yeah forgot that, and it's probably why I mentioned that album in the first place! Smile Love his drumming on Ash Ra Tempel and The Cosmic Jokers albums.

I have to admint im more into Klaus Schulze than TD. Schulze its a fucking genious, his first 10 records (From Irrlicht to 'X') are timeles masterpieces, and he is still able to release great stuff nowadays (Like the album with Lisa Gerrard)

Steve Roach has some albums heavily influenced by the "Berlin school" of electronic music. Albums like Now, Traveler and Empetus are worth looking into, some amazing tracks on them.
