Editorial Reviews

Tangerine Dream played an important role in the genesis of hightech electronic popular music. The group was founded in Germany during 1967 and over a 20-year period developed a cult following in Europe, North America, and Japan. More people have been exposed to the band`s unique sounds than many realize, for the abstract instrumental nature of the work of Tangerine Dream lends itself to movie soundtracks; their music graces dozens of popular motion pictures. ,The Endless Season" is the fifth and last part from the five ,Atomic Seasons" sessions.

"The Endless Season" is the fifth and final part of Tangerine Dream's "Five Atomic Seasons", a musical project undertaken over a five year period in response to a commission from a Japanese business manager, identified only as "Mr HT". The narrative underpinning to this disc covers the period of recovery and regeneration in the aftermath of the August 1945 atom-bomb attacks on Japan, with HT working himself almost to he point of exhaustion (mentally and physically) helping in a hospital for the sick and the dying, before going on subsequently to rebuild his own life in a world changed forever by traumatic events.

Musically, the material on this disc bears little relation to any of the previous four in the set, with very few thematic references to the earlier parts; it is also considerably more up-beat and forward-thrusting over its 65-minute duration than any of the earlier parts. Indeed, after a gentle and rather hesitant start with the opening tracks, a masterfully developed series of guitar riffs in track 5, "The Seven Barriers" (featuring guesting guitarist Bernhard Beibl) really blows the material on this disc wide open, after which it never really relaxes. The final six tracks really pile on the pace and the pulse and make for some the best music-making from this band in many a long year.

Edgar Froese is not generally adept at variety of mood or pacing, often struggles with developing any decent rhythms or tunes, and those Tangerine Dream albums credited to him alone are generally amongst the poorest of the band's offerings. Here though is an essentially solo album of which Edgar can truly be proud! It is well-structured, extensively developed with almost everything timed to perfection, with tunes and interesting rhythms a-plenty.

I don't think I will be able to write a better review than Steve Benner but I decided to offer some thoughts since I do disagree with some of what he said. While I believe this is the best of the Five Atomic Seasons, I don't think the it 'never relaxes'. I did find the middle part; The Seven Barries, Logic of Intuition, and Shunyata to be the best songs and the part where it really picks up but I think the CD takes a downturn after that (although that material is still excellent). I also think this release does have some 'dull moments' particularly in the beginning.

I think I was hoping for something along the lines of Persistence of Memory, Part 6 to close out this project. Persistence of Memory was written by Thorsten Quaeschning and I ultimately think that is what is missing from parts 2-5 of the Atomic Seasons. Thorsten has really brought some excellent material to the band in recent years - just as he did with Springtime in Nagasaki - and while this is mostly a solo release from Edgar, it would have benefitted a little more from Thorsten .

Having said all of this, I can't help but give this release 5 stars since really there are not any bad songs on this CD, especially when compared to the prior four releases. The three songs mentioned above really carry this CD.

Now that all five parts have been released, I can almost guarantee I will almost exclusively be playing this one in my car.

Endless Season concludes the five CD set "The Five Atomic Seasons" in grand style. A triumphal finish! This series of works is a cut above a lot of the recent releases and "re-recordings" by Tangerine Dream. I recommend giving it a listen. It musically tells the romantic, true story of a man and a woman who lived in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Their life before and after the bombings of those cities. TD is mainly founding member Edgar Froese, these days so most of the music is just composed and performed by him with the exception of 3 tracks by Thorsten Quaeschning on the first disc "Springtime In Nagasaki". The legend days of TD back in the 70s and early 80s are gone forever but occasionally something they do comes close to the old magnificence - and this set is one of those. Endless Season is one of the best things TD has done in many years.

The best of the five part series. This, like most of the rest of the Atomic Seasons series, and most Tangerine Dream output of recent decades, is essentially an Edgar Froese solo album, which is not a bad thing. The world of music lost Edgar this year, but thanks to him it is a world that will forever bear his mark, even if not everyone riding on his shoulders realizes that they are doing so. While not his chronologically final work, it is the culmination of a one of his most weighty and ambitious projects, dealing very directly with issues of tragedy, death and loss on both the personal and cultural scale. It may be the best candidate for his swan song.

I never get enough of Tangerine Dream. This is not the Japanese band of the same name. This is the group that has been around for decades, putting out music that takes you on journey's of the mind. Love those journeys. I have most of TD's CD's and am glad to add this one to my collection.
