Does anyone listen to the group " Tangerine Dream"? I wish they would get them t provide the background score for some of this summers movies like G I Joe. During the 1980's TD was scoring hundreds of my favorite movies. I have like 70 of their albums and I do not think I have even half of everything they have released.

Haven't heard that name in a while.
They have like a million albums, lol.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
The Reign of Tears has begun! Check out my original G.I.Joe story!

They did the soundtrack for Legend, right? I love their music. When the director's cut of Legend came out with the TD score replaced, I HATED it!

I love love love all their 70s stuff. In fact, I do some stuff similar to them on my synth/software. I'm an only child with too much time on her hands.
Basically they have 3 eras which are noting
1) The pink years: Electronic Meditation, Alpha Centauri, Ultima Thule, Zeit, Atem. This wouldn't be considered music by many as they were attempting to find their voice. Unless your into 20 minutes of keyboard washes avoid.
2) Virgin years: Green Desert, Phaedra, Rubycon, Richochet, Stratosfear, Encore, Cyclone, Force Majuere, Sorcerer
This stuff is the typical repetitve sequencer stuff. There isn't much variation, buts is amazing hearing such complex neo classical come out of synthesizers.
3) Tangram, Exit, Hyperborea, White Eagle, Thief
This is the typical 80s stuff when they actually produced songs. If you like the legend soundtrack, then check this stuff out.
Pretty much up to Hyperborea they are good, then they become elevator music.
I also recommend checking out Steve Roach's "Empetus". It is a great album before he went to doing pointless keyboard beeps.

BTW, I don't hate on the TD version at all, it's a good soundtrack. I just think JG's was more appropriate for the dark fairy-tale tone of the movie, and doesn't date it as much.

I am certainly a fan of their stuff. You can still catch them on your local NPR (National Public Radio) stations- try "Hearts of Space" or "Echoes"- certainly excellent shows for that genre of music.
