By the time this album was released I had little interest in Tangerine Dream. From my perspective they lost me with a series of albums that offered very little creativity when compared to their earlier work. Having said this, they did present a more melodic and commercial sound which I am partial to at times, and Le Parc in this context is a fine album of electronic instrumentals and one of their better 80’s works.
A musical tour of famous recreational parks across the world, Tangerine Dream captures the flavor and vibe of many of these locations including Zen Garden (Japan) and Bois de Boulogne (Paris). Again, this all very melodic and ‘pretty’ so if you are looking for another Ricochet or Zeit pass on Le Parc, but for those who can get past the band’s influential past, there is much here to enjoy.
