Tangerine Dream: The Official Bootleg Series: Volume Two

Album Review

Latest in bootleg series, featuring concerts from 1978 and 1980.

Of all the groups that emerged from the Krautrock scene, Tangerine Dream were among the most immediately successful. Their German-ness was not an obstacle, given their name, and despite the bleak worldview that accompanied vast, early ambient forays like Atem – depictions of a universe utterly indifferent to humanity, rather than a source of cosmic delight – audiences were blown away by the on-stage spectacle of their immense, black banks of sound equipment, dwarfing the humans working it.
