Album Info: Cyclone is a 1978 album by Tangerine Dream, and the first in their canon to feature proper vocals and lyrics. The mystical lyrics and rock flute of Steve Jolliffe on the first two tracks marked a turn toward progressive rock that many Tangerine Dream fans didn't like. The third track, however, is an extended Berlin School instrumental more in the vein of the title track from Stratosfear. The cover is a painting by band leader Edgar Froese that slightly resembles his cover for 1974's Phaedra.

Biography of Tangerine Dream: Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music band, founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The band has gone through many lineup changes over the years, but Froese was the main constant member of the band until his death in 2015. The band is known for its experimental and electronic music, which often features the use of synthesizers, sequencers, and other electronic instruments.
Tangerine Dream's early music was heavily influenced by the psychedelic rock of the late 1960s and the avant-garde classical music of the early 20th century. Their first album, "Electronic Meditation," was released in 1970 and was a blend of experimental rock and electronic music. In the early 1970s, the band began to incorporate more electronic instruments into their music and started to gain recognition for their unique sound.
In 1975, Tangerine Dream released "Phaedra," which is considered to be a classic of the electronic music genre. This album marked a turning point in the band's career and it was the first album of the band's to be released internationally. This album was followed by a series of successful albums such as "Rubycon," "Stratosfear," "Phaedra" and many others.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Tangerine Dream's music became more mainstream and the band began to incorporate more elements of pop and rock into their sound. They also began to compose music for films, and their music has been featured in over 60 films, including "Risky Business," "The Keep," and "Near Dark."
Tangerine Dream continued to tour and release music until Edgar Froese's death in 2015. The band continues to perform and record under the direction of Thorsten Quaeschning, one of the longest-standing members of the band, who continues to carry on the legacy of Tangerine Dream.
