Dream Mixes 4 (Audio CD)

Customer Review

Now it's finally here: the fourth album of the Dream Mixes series and at the same time the best. Beginning Dream Mixes 3 significantly better than the previous two, so Jerome and Edgar Froese place with their new album again a tooth. Never sounded Tangerine Dream as hard as on this album. The rhythms are faster and you do not believe that one is dealing with a band that already has under his belt for almost forty years. In addition, the band has this time ventured even to older material. So you can therefore hear "Time", among other current remixes of classics like "Tangram", "Force Majeure", "Ricochet", "Phaedra" and. Even from the piece "Rising Runner Missed By Endless stations" of their "Cyclone" plate there is an absolutely ingenious mix. The pieces are strung together like a long piece, at the beginning and end with snatches of conversation (probably from a movie) and there is hardly a second to breathe. So affects the final piece "The Metropolitan Sphere", which comes with comparatively gentle sounds almost like a release.
You have to listen to this album a few times before it opens a right. But I have to say quite clearly, as came out the first Dream Mixes nine years ago, I was not very excited about it, although I was very big fan of the band at that time. But Tangerine Dream have increased with every CD in this series and I'm excited to see what comes next. Too bad: the most beautiful for me piece "A Nautical Night" - also very quiet and typical Tangerine Dream - is only on the limited additional CD that was available on the homepage on the preliminary issue.
