The album was surprisingly flimsy but despite that, the Tangerine Dream tracks (the reason I bought the album) still swelled and filled the room with their dark synthy tones. They had a rich resonating residue that gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

The other pop tracks on the album sounded thin and without much soundstage lacking in bass or seperation. There is just such a stark mastering contrast between the pop tracks and the Tangerine Dream tracks, which is fine since I don't really throw this album on to listen to Bob Seger.

Does anyone know if Prince "D.M.S.R" is an early fade or an edit of the album version? The album version is over 8 minutes.
