Tangerine Dream - Tyranny of Beauty

   0 reviews  -  317 views
    Tyranny Of Beauty is Tangerine Dream's 1995 album and their 51st release. By this time TD consisted of original founder Edgar Froese and his son Jerome, and musician Linda Spa, who'd been a member since 1992, along with various guest musicians performing throughout the album. Like the previous releases Rockoon 1992 and Turn Of The Tides 1994, this album takes a similar path but with new branches, textures, and ideas. The album also features a refreshed version of the title track Stratosfear. Updated to a more rocky yet still very new electronic of the day.

    The album has different moods and turns. From a vinyl perspective it seems to be an even split taking on a different feel starting at track 6 and continuing until the album concludes. The sound is a more subdued mix more than anything else but the tempos do wind a bit more in the second half bringing the listener in easy.
