Tangram is the thirteenth album by the electronic music group Tangerine Dream. It became their fifth biggest selling album, reaching in the British Top 40, and spending 5 weeks on the chart. At a turning point between two eras, Tangram contains fond glimpses back at the "classic long-form sequencer" period and also contains foreshadows of the "new age melodic short track" period to come. It introduced new member Johannes Schmoelling, re-establishing the band as a keyboard trio.

My favourite Tangerine Dream album - this is the perfect combination of soaring melodies, pulsating rhythms and atmospheric pads. I bought the album new, but it was remaindered stock with a notch cut on the top right of the cover. Mine is a US pressing -wish I could get a German pressing of this classic album!
In 1979 Edgar Froese met Johannes Schmoelling, who joined Tangerine Dream to reestablish the trio status of the group. This lineup would come to be regarded by many fans as the strongest in the band's history. The first record project of the new line-up was Tangram (the title originating from a very old Chinese puzzle), released in the spring of 1980. Tangram is regarded to be one of the most dramatic albums ever released by the group. The sound quality of this release, using the Super Bit Mapping technology, is probably the best up to now.

The electronic music group Tangerine Dream has released more than one hundred albums, singles, EPs and compilations since the group was formed in 1967. Tangerine Dream's releases have been divided into several eras based on the record label of the time. Tangerine Dream's first releases were on the Ohr label.
Tangram marked the beginning of a new musical direction for Tangerine Dream. It's closer to straight-ahead, melodic new age music and more tied to their soundtrack material. For new age fans, this is the first glimmering of Tangerine Dream's eventual direction during the '80s.
