On Exit, listeners are introduced to electronic music’s next generation, notably on “Choronzon” and “Network 23,” which brought the sound of the dancefloor into the mix (it hasn’t left since). That’s not to suggest that Tangerine Dream has stopped creating eerie, evocative music; both “Pilots of Purple Twilight” and the stately “Exit” will feel familiar to fans, and the opening “Kiew Mission” is a captivating commentary on nuclear war that includes vocals after a sort (a woman’s voice reading locations in Russian). Exit ends on a surprisingly dark note, the alien and foreboding “Remote Viewing.” It’s on this track more than any other that Tangerine Dream returns to its past, invoking Phaedra and the sequencer-driven works that followed, as if to tell fans that Exit’s changes weren’t the result of a new band, just a new direction.
