Narrowing the gap between psychedelia and electronica, Tangerine Dream frontman Edgar Froese looks to the future in this clean and mostly satisfying release; all in all an important turning point for the artist.
If nothing else, it marks a departure from his band's tendency to make an album out of two minute epics; Froese ups the structure a bit with shorter pieces, and more of them. The opening and title track's thematic elements and major-key harmonizing run the risk of falling flat, but at just over four minutes, it's tolerable.
The majestic qualities of "Stuntman" don't match up with the rest of the album's aesthetics, so Froese's stream-of-consciousness journey really begins with track two "It Would Be Like Samoa" and keeps up a good pace from there, soloing over his carefully Stuntman - Edgar Froese - Stuntman sequencer beds and analog ambience. He uses his electric guitar sparingly, and there's almost no percussion without his bandmates, the album is mostly too delicate in nature Karışık Kebap 3 - Şiş Kebabı / Ayağında Kundura / Kırmızı Kurdelem / Reyhan - Urfalı Babi - Disko-Ke support itbut there's no mistaking that Froese Stuntman - Edgar Froese - Stuntman the heart, soul, and defining sound of Tangerine Dream.
All the elements come together with "A Dali-Esque Sleep Fuse," a miniature masterpiece which happens to feature guitar solos and synthesized percussion that brings the album to a near close, before the meditative synthesizer waves cool down the listener with "Scarlet Score for Mescalero," returning to the major-key simplicity of the album's opener, sort of a Stuntman - Edgar Froese - Stuntman finale.
