Hyperborea is the nineteenth album by Tangerine Dream. It spent two weeks on the UK album chart peaking at N. 5. No Man's Land" makes heavy use of sitar. Cinnamon Road" also utilizes sitar, but with a conventional pop music structure.
An understated work of quiet genius, and one of all-time favourites by any artist.
Tangerine Dream -Hyperborea JAPAN LP with OBI �VINYL. Tangerine dream "Hyperborea" CD new+. Tangerine Dream Hyperborea LP Virgin V2292 EX/EX 1983 Hyperborea. Tangerine Dream's last release on the Virgin record label and a good one at that. This is a real slow burner of an album. The first time I heard it I was underwhelmed but the subtle ideas come through after a few listens. The first peice 'No Mans Land' is very hypnotic with minimal structure. Next up 'Hyperborea'.
Tangerine Dream set the stage for the style of "artsy" soundtrack music that dominated the '80s. Although Hyperborea is not a soundtrack, it was clearly influential on some of the work the group was hired to do for Risky Business, Flashpoint, Dreamscape, Firestarter, Legend, and close to 20 others. There have been at least a dozen members in this trio over the years, but the assembly of Chris Franke, Edgar Froese, and Johannes Schmoelling proved to be one of the most prolific and influential.
Hyperborea is the nineteenth album by Tangerine Dream and their last album on the Virgin Records label.
