I only own Zeit, Phaedra, and Cyclone. Zeit's the only one I really love, the other two feel very slight to me. They're the kind of thing I'd expect to like much more than I do.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Here we go again. Although that 4th album describes you to a tee.


Does it translate to sad-fucque Yves?

The lad clearly leads a very sad, lonely life

I actually feel very sorry for him and I mean that sincerely. The lad needs help.

Anyway, back to TD...

That is an excellent album

I know you know lad, but for others: recorded in 1973, additional remixing in 1984 and released in 1986.

Chronologically after Phaedra I think - Maarts will correct me

I see Maarts has already dealt with it!

Good lad

Yes, I was going to make some of this point

Just having a laugh, old chap! There's really no need to worry about me - I'm having a grand time in London at the moment, actually.

Always keep a good humour about you - and enjoy the Tangerine 'Dream' (but I'd keep away from Sad-Fuque and Bully Boy if I were you - they're rather sad and repetitive :D

An excellent selection Chris

For some reason I think Hyperborea is often overlooked. It really is a phenomenal album

Yes. He is a very sad, lonely character.

I pity him. He clearly leads an empty life

The only pleasures he appears to have is trying to goad others.

He needs to understand that many here don't like him nor his bully-boy ways.

He is a very tiresome, sad old man

Still, that's his problem - back to TD

oooof!

Cyclone
Stratosfear
Ricochet
Rubycon
Phaedra

So them.


That is an excellent five to have Yves.

No desire to expand your collection then my dear learned friend...?

Try Force Majeure - that would fit in nicely

Those two remastered box sets are still the dog's wotsits ...
Especially for the live footage that was lovely restored and presented....Mr. C:s Dominion-gig is stellar but this concert has been a favourite of mine..

Absolutely Maarts!

It was a bit chilly though I recall.

Minus 7 Celsius....?

A fantastic album one of my top 10

I’ve not ever watched the video so will enjoy that tonight with a nice glass of Merlot

Most excellent

I would have preferred less references to McDonald's though

What's all that about Maarts (sponsorship?)

True Maarts

An observation rather than a criticism

Look out for the Edgar Birthday Bash PSL/LL soon......
