10 Best Tangerine Dream Albums From Number Six of 20 Icons of Echoes. On the air I said I’d pick five, but I decided to go with ten. 1-Phaedra 2-Rubycon Phaedra and Rubycon have always been a pair for me and that pair is half of a quartet with Ricochet and Stratosfear. These are the signature Dream albums, the blueprint for every retro-space artist out there, the sound that influenced ambient, techno, and more. The classic trio of Edgar Froese, Christoph Franke and Peter Baumann found the secret of rubber band sequencer patterns discovered by Tonto’s Expanding Headband 2 years earlier. 7-Ricochet The other album in the classic quartet. Ricochet was their first live album, although it was all new materiel and sounds like a studio recording. Another two-sided excursion that moves from the quietest solo piano spot to thundering sequencers from the heavens.
This Tangerine Dream discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Tangerine Dream albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Tangerine Dream singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.
Tangerine Dream – Phaedra (1974). The album that popularised the band and went gold in seven countries despite having no radio play, Phaedra gets props for its distinctive use of the Moog modular synthesiser, sequenced by Christopher Franke to create burbling basslines, with Froese’s mellotron lines sweeping and gushy over the mix. The best parts of Phaedra are the passages where music concrète takes over, Cluster-style, with expansive sections that sound like aquatic aliens singing underwater and lonely kosmische flute lines played by Peter Baumann. Phaedra is often cited as the group’s best.

Huckebees Dream This collection of odds and rarities cannot even begin to approach those proportions, but still its journey hits many of the high points that one would hope to find, as it traces band mainstay Edgar Froese at least into the early 1990s. The set opens with a pair of cuts recorded by Froese's pre-Tangs band the Ones in 1967, a couple of darkly atmospheric psych rockers that are far removed from anything he would go on to create. This is especially true on the early to mid-'70s material, when Tangerine Dream were at their contemplative peak; but even after moving into the '80s, from whence the bulk of disc two is drawn, there is a strength and purpose here that confirms the group's continued importance and influence.
