"While I have not had enough time to listen to Tangerine Dream's expansive library of music, I have to say of what I have heard, this is my most favorite on my list. If you love keyboards/synthesizers as much as I do (I am an 80's fanatic), you will not be disappointed. Also, the guitar riffs in this CD by co-founder Edgar Froese are outstanding! My persoanl favorite track is "Dolphin Dance" for its serious yet playful melody. As I hardly ever give any of my CD's the coveted "5 stars", this is an awesome listen for sure... if they only had this in SACD format (haven't found one yet), I could only imagine how expansive the sound would be... in a single word, "Wow!"!"

"This was the third or fourth release by TD I had ever purchased. I was just getting into their sound at the time, and this release only served to invigorate my love for their music.
Johannes Schmoelling had departed the band after nearly 6 years and Underwater Sunlight introduced yet another newcomer to the TD lineup: a young Austrian by then name of Paul Haslinger. Paul sems to have brought a new edge to the band's music.
This "concept" album seems to focus on the sea and the life therein (judging by the song titles) and each composition is masterful work of art.
The first track, "Song of the Whale - Part One: From Dawn..." is obviously an allegory to the plight of a vanishing species (in '86 when this album was released, "Save the Whales" was a popular slogan and an issue that seemed to be on everyone's mind at the time). This composition will tear at your heartstrings as Edgar's guitar cries alongside Chris's crystal-clear sequencers, and Paul's melodies.
This album has it all; beautiful, relaxing melodies, up-tempo songs, and atmospheric journeys into the mysteries of the sea.
One of my favorites.
