5.0 out of 5 stars One of Edgar's very best! 19 Dec 2006
By DSR VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have the original LP and CD release of this outstanding album and love all the tracks on it. This re-issue, I understand, doesn't change things too much, thankfully, so anyone who knows the original won't be put off this version...

This album is really best listened to as a complete entity, although tracks can easily be savoured on their own. The more effort you put in, the more enjoyment you'll get out of it. I don't think the tracks have dated particularly, but then I love this era of Tangerine Dream and the instruments they were using at that point...

If you like Tangerine Dream's music, you will almost certainly have this. If not, I definately recommend it!

I saw this version at a fraction of the cost of the original as its done by Eastgate its still good in fact super it has been reworked but that still doesn't stop me from enjoying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars New and Improved but still not spectacular! 18 Oct 2008
By Steve Benner TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The original "Stuntman" album by Edgar Froese dated from 1979. The 2003 re-release can be told from the older, original version by means of being credited to Edgar W. Froese (note the middle initial) and its computer generated jewel-case artwork. (The original carried a photograph of a crash helmet.) The track-listing (and running times) of the two versions are identical but the music most certainly is not.

"Stuntman" has always been an altogether more polished affair than many of Edgar Froese's other solo albums. Happily, too, this album is free from all traces of the ponderous self-indulgence to which solo Froese efforts can be more than a little prone. The tunes here do tend to be a little on the cute side, even for Froese, but at least he seems to have recognised this and, for once, nothing ever outstays its welcome. The lead synthesiser voices tend to be very sweet, too, and so, generally, it all works well and there are no tracks that could be called at all bad on this album.

The reworked version has had some more spit and polish applied, with not only substantial remastering of the original recordings to make them carry more punch, but also, in places, additional harmonic layers to thicken up the textures and to add more interest. The treatments have not always worked in the music's best interest, especially where the origins carried a particular lightness of touch that was quite endearing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as the original 29 April 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Note that this review is of the 2003 release, not the original LP or CD releases. For some reason Amazon have combined them.

I think Stuntman ranks highly from the albums emanating from the TG camp. More melodic and harmonic progression than the earlier albums and with the great synth timbres from this era.

However, the remastered 2003 version sounds like a full re-mix to me. It is very similar, but there are added layers on some tracks and on others the balance between the parts has changed, and it doesn't work as well as the originals. A case of less is more on the original. Also, it lacks the tonal warmth of the LP release.

Since I posted my first review the 2008 version has become available, which from the previews sounds more like the original. I will probably update this review after getting it.

If it was the original mixes I would give it 5 stars. I would recommend getting the earlier 90's release on CD, or better still, a pristine LP, but not easy to find. I can't fully comment on the 2008 release yet.
