Sitting here listening to Tangerine Dream's Hyperborea I find myself wondering about what lead them to their current sound, the little of which I've heard bored me. Chris Franke leaving seems to have been the final turning point with them. I suspect that like a lot of other artists Edgar Froese needed strong collaborators who might disagree with him at times to strengthen his ideas, and once Franke left there was no one to fill that role. Then again lots of artists simply run out of interesting ideas.
