Tangerine Dream - Tournado (1997) Retail CD
Time was when Tangerine Dream's concerts would be platforms for the band to showcase new ideas to the fans, as well as places for the band members themselves to experiment with new ideas in a live improvisatory setting. Judging from the contents of this disc, together with its partner "Tournado" (which features the second half of another concert from the same tour), Tangerine Dream concerts are nowadays just an excuse to trot out the same tired old tunes before an audience happy to play 'spot the golden oldie'! (Incidentally, you can now buy "Valentine Wheels" and "Tournado" as a single releasemore…, under the title "Lamb with Radar Eyes". Yeah, go figure...)
Time was when Tangerine Dream's live recording releases used to be carefully honed creations, providing fresh material for fans new and old to savour and admire. Sadly, this album dates from the years when it seemed like it was all too much effort to craft anything new from the endlessly recycled material. Maybe Edgar and Jerome had finally succumbed to commercial pressures? Maybe they'd seen the burgeoning bootleg market that profits so handsomely from their labours and decided it was time to cash in themselves?
Whatever the reasons, though, this disc presents nothing new (or even anything particularly interesting) for the long-time fan. The ten numbers played here span the band's output all the way from "Sorcerer" to "Oasis" but it is all played in such a uniformly lacklustre way that anyone who knows what the band used to be capable of in live performance can only be bitterly disappointed by this release. Even 'Stratosfear 95' limps home with no great show of enthusiasm.
"Tournado" is something of an improvement on this release. At least it contains some sort of fire - something that is just altogether lacking here. Textures are also so muddy that my ears were definitely tired by the end. What a shame! Maybe you had to be there...?
