The Meandering Hexagon
Listener's Log: Stratosfear by Tangerine Dream
Artist: Tangerine Dream
Release Date: October 1976
Date Listened: 6 November 2017
Remarks: Like Ricochet, Stratosfear is a big step away from what was by now the TD sound. There's some more acoustic instruments in the mix– even harmonica! The tracks are shorter (there's only 4) and it sounds very 80s. The catch is, the 80s were still a few years away. Overall, I enjoyed this record as well as it's beautiful cover art, but I feel that this could be the point the band veered away from the group I knew and loved previously.
Stand Out Tracks: More or less created equal, but The Big Sleep in Search of Hades and 3 AM at the Border of the Marsh from Okefenokee are the lesser two.
