The new TD album is highly recommended.

Yes, the headline says it all, but allow me to say some more. As you might know, I think 2009 and 2010 were very meagre years for TD. Personally, I could only really get excited by the last two parts of The Five Atomic Seasons, Winter In Hiroshima and The Endless Season from those years.

Too much re-recording, compilations, dubious live recordings on cd and dvd, remixes - you name it, seemed to overshadow TD those years. When the concepts are strong enough, there usually come something extraordinary out of it. 

Edgar Allan Poe's The Island of the Fay - A Nonverbial Musical Translation is the sound of TD being INSPIRED, working together as a team, just like the excellent Jean d'Arc and Madcap's Flaming Duty. Two of my favourite albums from Tangerine Dream.

There are hardly any dull moments on this album. Sequencer fanatics will particularly like the first two tracks. Buy it on cd or download now, and don't forget to grab Booster IV as well. That one includes the magnificent, and long out of print, Purple Diluvial.
