Review: Originally released in 1979, Francesco Cabiati's Mirage is a classic slice of holy grail electronic prog that has been searched for and fawned over for years by avid collectors. Now Galaxy have scored the record as their opening gambit, which should satisfy more than a few second hand vigilantes out there. It's a bombastic offering rich in Moog lines and dramatic themes, much like all the great instrumental synth offerings of the era. From the faithful treatment of the cover and labels to the quality of the remastering, it's everything a classic reissue of a hidden gem should be.
Review: Tangerine Dream's seminal 1976 album finds itself getting a welcome gatefold vinyl reissue. Marking the beginning of the group's move away from experimental to more overtly melodic sounds, and features the urgent tones of the title track, the dramatic, quasi-medieval melodies of The Big Sleep In Search Of Hades, the swelling strings and cinematic atmosphere of "3am At The Border Of The Marsh From Okefenokee" and the pastoral prog of "Invisible Limits".
