Tangram is the thirteenth major release and tenth studio album by the electronic music group Tangerine Dream. It became their fifth biggest selling album, reaching #36 in the British Top 40, and spending 5 weeks on the chart. Issued by Virgin in May 1980, Tangram again attracted positive press and cracked the UK Top 40. Superficially, its content (two side-long pieces entitled Tangram Set 1 and Tangram Set 2, respectively) mirrored the band’s mid-70s albums such as Phaedra and Rubycon. However, while these earlier, Virgin-released recordings had been fashioned from hypnotic sequencer loops and long, spontaneous sessions of improvisation, Tangram offered jazz-oriented chord patterns and highly developed melodies; its stylish wares are still tightly structured and accessible enough to remain an attractive proposition for novices and seasoned fans alike.
