The spacious drama of the processes of meteorological and geological forces interacting through the ages re The record closes with “Thru Metamorphic Rocks”. My experiences of the music of Tangerine Dream are largely based on the synthesiser dominated albums “Encore”, “Rubycon” and “Phaedra”. The album consist of just three tracks, the opening title track occupying the whole of the first side of the original LP.

I will be very short here, Cloudburst Flight the middle piece from the album and the worst track from here is nothing than a boring trip through everything is about arangements on keys, the other two the longest are so so. To be honest this track makes me think to Eloy, and even if well played and absolutely not bad, it’s difficult thinking that this is a TD track.
