Plush sound not of this earth
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the winter of 1983, Tangerine Dream began experimenting with and testing the new direction in sound. The result was mixed, with high and low points, at least until spring of 1983, when Wavelength was recorded, being one of the most beautiful soundtracks ever composed. In this hectic period, Tangerine Dream issued a single, 'Moorland', half of which was later reissued in 2000 on the "Antique Dreams" compilation CD. The element of nostalgia crept into the so far totally synthesized music, which prevailed in 1982, on several of albums recorded at that time: "White Eagle", "Sohoman" and "Logos"."Wavelength" is the last album of this hectic period, and to tell the truth, it's simply beautiful. Rarely in their career did they manage to compose such an atmospheric, moody album. With the 70s way past them, and after they switched to musical directions other than followed thus far. It's true that much of the contents of "Wavelength" consist of the refurbished material from several previous years. What distinguishes it from other albums with the same property - is the actual choice of what was being rehashed. Pearls of melodies were edited, re-recorded, mixed into new compositions, and actually, as hard it is to believe, sometimes they improve over the original. This said, I must do the album justice by saying that more than half of this short album is completely new.The final result, a soundtrack for a science-fiction movie about little aliens - is exquisite. I dare say that this is the best soundtrack of Tangerine Dream, and you must know that the sheer number of films Tangerine Dream supplied its music for - exceeds a hundred, with several dozen actually appearing on CDs, either right after the music was recorded, or years later. "Wavelength" is very hard to obtain in America, slightly less so in Europe - which is a pity, for you can't do better for an introduction to what Tangerine Dream in the 80s was all about, than you can do with "Wavelength". Indeed, it's worth doing some market search - and spend some effort to purchase this excellent CD, whether you are a beginner, or a collector."

"1983 "Wavelength" is easily accessible in Europe. It is so wonderful, that any words will fall short of reality. The only flaw of this CD is that it is only 38 minutes long. I would better say, it is only 38 minutes short. Too short. Some pieces deserve a nobel prize in music. If such a thing existed, "Wavelength" should be one of the first to get it. What are you waiting for? Buy right away! TD is not such anymore..."
