Cheap? What do you mean with cheap? My underpants are cheap, but not Tangram. :oops: :)


some of the instruments ...like in the piccolo/march section sound a bit casio organ ;)

It's funny how some sounds date, and others don't. I remember 'Lily on the Beach' sounding so fresh and new, but I find it rather thin on the ground now.

I have a soft spot for Tangram. It was the album that confirmed I was on the right track with TD, having first bought Poland. It still has the capacity to completely take me over - having to stop what ever I'm doing and sit down.


Yeah thats very true because albums like Le-Parc and Exit seem timeless ...but White Eagle is quite dated in comparison too (not the title track)


Yep, but Tangram is also timeless, concerning to me. have to be, if you play something frequently after so many years.


Yes thats true but I meant timeless in the sense that it could have been produced this year, or recently and nobody would question it or say its dated.


Hmm, Edgar could put a filter on it, tangentize or whatever and it is from this year. :roll:

Last night I was in the intercity bus, travelling back to my homecity (Athens)
and I had for one time again, 'Tangram' playing. While travelling in the dark with TD's music as company, I was thinking (in almost wet eyes) that, apart from fame, money, luxury etc, the biggest happiness for one musician could be that he touched the people souls and hearts with the music he made.
Edgar Froese (and the others in the group or not) is one of the few happy, blessed people achived that.

'Tangram' is one of these pieces of music, full of intense mixed emotions, almost in classical music scale.

God bless TD

the thing about Tangram, is that its another classic TD album in that its music reflects its cover art and inner sleeve.....warm yet chilly, enigmatic yet familiar....Tangram................

A delightful album, particularly Part 1. TD was at the top of their game at that period of their career. I still listen to it every once in a while.

Maybe it should be nice to play the whole part one or two on a concert for once. TD plays a lot of old work these days, but mostly fragments. Think they do a lot of fans a great pleasure with playing part 1 fully.

I'd be more than happy to listen to that. :D

Just started to listen to Tangram after a very intensive period listening to Rubycon/Ricochet. Another great record I particularly like the patoral feel to Pt 1. It amazes me how much musical variety is packed into a disc under 40 minutes. Can see I am going to be listening to this disc for a long, long time. Classic.

yep, indeed. I think it belongs to a selective range of instrumental albums like Tubelar Bells, Oxygenne, The Snowgoose andsome others.

Tangram was my first TD album and my favourite. Like the title suggests the album is like a Chinese puzzle filled with so many different styles and sounds.

Whilst it is my most played CD I prefer to listen to it during calm periods of reflection, to avoid spoiling the experience. It's not an album for listening to on the way to work, for example.

I'd buy all the virgin years on mini LP replicas as I love owning CD's in that packaging.

My original Tangram LP had a funny plastic inner sleeve, as well as the paper sleeve with the snow photos on, I'd be interested to see if they replicated that.
