The journey of life is not based on the accomplishments, but the experience.

Hi!

Mine would have to be Tangerine Dream. And my favourite album of theirs is Underwater Sunlight. Still sounds as good as when I used to listen to it as a teenager 18 years ago!

Many thanks,

Pierre

My all time favourite "Instrumental Album". Very limited vocals which actually are more like just another instrument the way they are arranged. This particular performance is one of the greatest orchestrations recorded in my opinion.

I like to listen to Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66.
