And the great thing about Booster is that it never gets old.
J. Q. - LOYAL READER!
What I don't get is why what is actually on the disk is not just represented more honestly by the clever blurbs on the shiny packaging.
Edward N. Britto Jr.
There always seems to be an essence in the music that distills out and becomes instantly recognizable as TD.

I should say upfront that I am a Tangerine Dream of the old days, the Virgin releases era really (1973-1983), and I lost interest in the band pretty much in the late 1980s. Couldn't stand the band's eventual drift into new age, mixes, and whatever else. But when I read about this album, I was intrigued, and so on a whim really, sound unheard, I purchased this from Amazon recently. I must add that I'm into another phase of being into electronic music from watching the excellent "Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution" DVD, which explores the German music scene in the 70s, including of course Kraftwerk, but also Klaus Schulze, Cluster, Harmonia, and Tangerine Dream, among others.

"Booster" (2 CDs, 16 tracks, 114 min.) is a curious mix. I was immediately skeptical when I read the liner notes, which tell us "Some titles have been exclusively compiled 2007 from various Tangerine Dream releases", and then that only a couple of tracks (3 in fact) are unreleased. After a tentative opener "One Night In Space" though, I am very charmed by the 14+ min. "Hyper Sphinx", which reminds me of latter 80s Tangerine Dream, nicely done. The re-recording of classic tracks "Logos" and "Tangram" are worthless, as they only want to make you want to listen to the original tracks. But there are several other highlights, none better than the 14+ min set closer "Bells of Acra", which I really like.

It is surely not a coincidence that I liked the 2 longest tracks on here by far. That said, this is not the return of the Tangerine Dream of old, but it surely is the best new music I've heard from Edgar Froese in, well, forever. Is it 'essential' to have? no, but it's decent enough.

Touted as a return to the band's early, analog-driven improvisations, circa Phaedra and Rubycon, this 2-disc set promises a lot. Originally known for stretching the capabilities of early synthesizers, the '70s Tangerine Dream, led by keyboardist / guitarist Edgar Froese, constructed a trademark sound of free-form washes of audio smears, frantically beeping sequences, symphonic electronics, and subterranean motor rhythms. Subsequent decades found the band stuffing its catalog with blander, poppier, Yanni baloney. So does Booster really redeem the band? Maybe. Several tracks, such as the Floydish "The Greek Mirror" or the 14-minute episodic "Hyper Sphinx," do recall the throbbing oscillations that made Phaedra a theme song, to this day, of WXPN's long-running space-music show Stars' End. But several tracks trip over their drum machine laces and major-key feet, falling into sun-drenched flowerbeds rather than an orbit around the dark side of Neptune. Phaedra *****, Rubycon ****, and Ricochet **** remain the untouched trio of Dream classics, supplemented by Froese's first two solo discs, Aqua **** and the rare Epsilon in Malaysian Pale *****. Booster is a rooster for the rest.

I've been a fan of TD since thier early days (Zeit, Rubycon) and this is the first time I have seen TD go back to thier early style as well as have some of the newer style of music. I still prefer their long pieces like Tangram and Pheadra, but this is a good mix of their music and its all new.

No matter how many times TD records a song, it's always different. The electronic improvements make these whole new sounds. I have just about everything they recorded, and I think this one is quite good.

Tangerine Dream through all of its iterations and personnel changes remains my favorite instrumental, synthesizer-based band out there. This album is no letdown -- it delivers catchy riffs, as well as, mellow tunes. Though termed a Tangerine Dream effort, Booster (2008) is a solo production by the multi-skilled Edgar Froese, and he manages to pull off the stunt exceptionally well with full-sounding, multi-instrument tracks. Hats off to Edgar Froese for continuing his pioneering efforts!

In my opinion, Booster is one of the best Tangerine Dream albums in my large collection of their stuff over the years. And, to make Booster even more enticing, it's a double-CD available for the cost of the average single CD.

Okay, so this is not all new material, but it's probably one of their best releases in awhile. I've been listening to TD for 30+ years and Phaedra, Rubycon or Force Majeure this is not, but it's one of their best since Underwater Sunlight in my opinion.

I got back into TD's music because of Booster. Outstanding.
I have amassed quite a collection since.
Bought 'Summer in Nagasaki' the other day. It is one of a series of CDs and CDs in the making grouped under the title of 'The Five Atomic Seasons'. I keep playing it over and over and over and....
Other favorite albums: Rocking Mars (recorded-live 2 CD set, check out the track 'Tharsis Maneuver'); Hyperborea ('No Man's Land' is awesome. So is 'Sphinx Lightning'); Green Desert (The tracks 'Green Desert'; 'White Clouds' and 'Astral Voyager', a personal favorite); Booster (a 2 CD set.)'One Night in Space'; 'Hyper Sphinx'; 'The Greek Mirror'; 'Tangines On And Running' and 'Bells Of Accra' which I listen to on a daily basis.
Sum: No bad tracks on 2 CDs.

Virtually every song of this very good and diverse genre TD 2 CD set was performed by Edgar Froese. He's essentially the only remaining member of Tangerine Dream for the past two years. Edgar's the patriarch of electronic music. On "Booster" he uses his boundless keyboard, synth and guitar musical skills to deliver several masterful soundscapes. He has the muli-talented virtuosity and autonomy to lead Tangerine Dream all by himself. He has mastered every niche of their sound.
