Quantum Gate

Quantum Gate is a 2017 album by Tangerine Dream. It is roughly their one-hundred and fiftieth album. It is the first full-length album since the death of founder Edgar Froese in 2015, and is largely based on ideas and musical sketches left by Froese.[1][2][3][4]

This album earned the group the most press they have had since the release of 1994's Turn of the Tides due to the revived interest in the group following Edgar's death.
