Beyond The Storm
PRODUCER: Edgar Froese
Caroline/Blue Plate 1895
This is the second of Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese's revisionist anthologies. Last year, he released the Dream collection "Tangents," and now he has revisited his solo works. But rather than collect them on his two-CD set, Froese has rerecorded them, adding digital timbres and plodding drum machines to the liquid head trip "Upland" and a pseudo-classical intro the otherwise powerful "Drunken Mozart." Combined with 16 outright new compositions, this is a retrospective with no sense of history, substituting the suspect sheen of the present for the exploratory charm of the past.
