TANGERINE DREAM
Tyranny of Beauty

PRODUCER: Edgar Froese
Miramar 23046

While techno/ambient artists like Global Communication pillage the synthesizer vocabulary of Tangerine Dream, the German space-music veterans sounds blithely unaware of the contemporary music developments they've influence. Instead, "Tyranny Of Beauty" continues the electro-symphonic rock the group has plied in the '90s. Histrionic guitar solos, cheesy saxophone, and overbearing crescendos dominate the album. The acoustic guitar on the kinetic opener, "Catwalk" is a pleasant respite, briefly alleviating the relentless sonic assault. Revisiting an old tune, "Stratosfear 1995" is only a reminder of the promise Tangerine Dream held in 1976.

Verna, Paul. "Album reviews : Tyranny Of Beauty by Tangerine Dream."
Billboard Apr. 8, 1995, P. 96.
