I had the privilege of "inheriting" some records from my uncle's 500+ piece 70's record collection and STRATOSFEAR was one of them. I wasn't even born when this was released but I enjoy this a lot - not knowing all that much about electronic music from back in the day I can only marvel in appreciation at what they must have accomplished at the time.
Maybe this is audio blasphemy and maybe it isn't, but (no doubt as a result of my MTV soaked short attention span suffering media cynical generation Y mind) I always play "STRATOSFEAR" at 45.

This album made me start to like Tangerine Dream. By the time it was a real innovative path they were taking. Into a dead end it seems. Unfortunately!

you'er right , this showed a new side to the usual very long synthesizer led journeys thru ambient textures and added a drum machine and flutes . for a more melodic , trancy , but a little faster sound. i remember being real astonished when i heard this record the first time ;only knowing their experimental stuff like ZEIT , or Alpha Centaury . Rubycon on the other hand, had some of this ingredients already a few years before....

Simply my favorite TD album with Phaedra and White Eagle.
Probably the most well accomplished album in the 70's Electronic era with Timewind and Trans Europe Express.
Stratosfear drove the band and Electronic Music to Recognition in the ROCK Music area. It was the end of Gadget music...;-)
