A rather confusing package for those with a newfound interest in Tangerine Dream, The Essential Tangerine Dream might appear to be a three-in-one compilation by glancing at the front, since it lists three titles - two of which happen to be title tracks of Tangerine Dream albums - seemingly picked at random. As it is a single-disc compilation that features full-length versions of tracks by a band that thrived in the ten- to 20-minute format, the set is more like a sampler than an all-encompassing anthology designed to satisfy the curious. That said, this is an excellent sampler, one that should spark further interest in the group's deep discography.
