    I love the instrumentation...it's better this way. =P In my top three Tangerine Dream albums for sure.

    "Optical Race" was the first album recorded after Chris Franke left the band. The most prominent thing is the average instrumentation: With Chris the band also lost a lot of equipment. You can also hear the Atari-ST system here: the tracks are arranged with minute detail, but lack overall freshness: Stand out track: Definitely "Sun Gate", co=written with the then tour member Ralph Wadephul.
