Have not gotten the Probe album and not sure I will get this other album.
I did get RAUM earlier and was finally able to sit down, listen to it (title piece 6 times!!!) and enjoyed it, and although I have not in 40 years of film and music reviews EVER done a Tangerine Dream review, I am considering tackling many of the other albums.
Hopefully you will not think this is a negative review as it is very positive for me ... specially the 2 very long pieces. Both are getting carved out into my memory at this time to add to the incredible universe already there by what we know as "Tangerine Dream"
With love and much care, and hopefully everyone made it through that bad stuff out there!
Posted this later elsewhere ... about the DC albums:
I'm in the process of trying to find a good translation to read it all again. I don't really remember a lot of it anymore, and have "lived" with a couple of the albums for a long time, but it was as if I remembered something or other, which I could not identify.
But all in all, as I mentioned, I am saddened by the classless effort to create something that many folks can not afford, and in most cases, will NEVER HEAR.
For a band that gave you EVERTHING it ever found ... all of a sudden, this beauty of the idea and theme is gone for me. I can relate to the commercial side of it, and the need to put food on the table, but the difference between a hamburger or steak is massive, and I think they have stopped appreciating a tramp trying to eat a shoe, because he had nothing else to eat.
I think this is a goodbye to TD for me. It meant a lot to my heart and mind for many years, but it has sadly gone forever like everything else ... let the old man die ... for his heart can not longer sustain ... the life of an idea ... that survived so long ... sometimes without a justification ... but always with a feeling ... that meant something ... when words and literature ... meant something more ... than just a like and dislike ... a lot more than just a kiss in the wind ... frozen lips in time ... when we felt something ... which was whisked away ... in a mysteriously slow ... movie ... like the wind ... where it blows ... we will never know ... or give a sh*t anyway ... but one thing is true ... forever ... we lived it ... and we can remember it ... and at this time ... something like TD ... is no longer there ... bless the wind ... bless the nature ... bless the heart.
My love has gone away, as an old song said ... sadly!
