Background: Released in 1983, Hyperborea was the nineteenth LP by Tangerine Dream.
The album reached #45 on the UK album chart.
Hyperborea was a turning point for the band — a distinctive departure from the free-form psychedelica-and-moog prog rock improvisations, it was an album of crispness, structure, and a little bravery too — a showcase for artists with enough chops to adjust to the new technology without getting lost in it. Getting its hands on the popular new keyboards of the mid-’80s, the band found wonderful textures, richly overlapping sequences, and on some level a chance to reinvent themselves, and with great results.
