“Fans of electronic music won’t need any encouragement, it’s a classic band on world beating form, playing brilliantly and creating a surprisingly analogue sound – big retro synths and sounds but with a modern twist.

“The latest version of Tangerine Dream (Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane) are now returning to those heady days of live improvisations by including half an hour sections of totally unscripted sound. The results found here on 'The Sessions 1' are truly remarkable.”
