"Phaedra" rocketed Tangerine Dream into the UK album charts for the first time, back in 1974, taking the conventional pop world by storm. TD were newly signed to Richard Branson's fledgling record company, Virgin, and this album did much to secure the future of both band and label. At the time, the general record-buying public in the UK had never heard anything like this. Brooding synthesiser sounds over complex pulsing sequencer patterns, where the intonation constantly shifted and where tunes and melodies and the other trappings of popular music were entirely absent was a concept entirely alien to the comfortable pop world of 70's Britain.
