Cyclone is the eleventh album by Tangerine Dream and the first in their canon to feature proper vocals and lyrics. The mystical lyrics and rock flute of Steve Jolliffe on the first two tracks marked a turn toward progressive rock. The third track, however, is an extended Berlin School instrumental more in the vein of the title track from Stratosfear. The cover is a painting by band leader Edgar Froese that slightly resembles his cover for 1974's Phaedra.

A welcome reissue and one that marks an interesting transition in Tangerine Dream's existence - this was the first TD album to incorporate lyrics and vocals (from Steve Jolliffe, who also contributed wind instruments and keyboards). By this point, the nucleus of the band was down to Edgar Froese and Christopher Franke, with the sound centering more on shifting arpeggiation over percussive rhythm structures, with "Madrigal Meridian" being an impressive example of this.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Although it pains me to say this, I can't really recommend Cyclone very highly, although hardcore Tangerine Dream fans (like me) will want to have this album. For those of you that are new to the band, check out Phaedra (1974); Rubycon (1975); and Tangram (1980) before coming here.

Cyclone is quite notably the first Tangerine Dream album to feature lyrics and vocals. Their move towards more vocal based tracks hurt their reputation in the eyes of loyal fans, who unsurprisingly criticized Cyclone heavily. Another trend that started with Cyclone was their use of rock music's signature string instrument, the guitar. As such Cyclone often feels more like psychedelic rock, similar to Pink Floyd, rather than experimental trance-inducing electronic music. Each track on Cyclone has its own clear and defined identity. Because of this, the album does not flow together like some of Tangerine Dreams prior albums; but when listened to minor details like these do not detract away from the experience. Immediately the change in Tangerine Dream's sound is evident. The intro to Bent Cold Sidewalk features processed electronic vocals.
