Thanks Andy. Loved reading those. I particularly like this bit;
"I imagine only T Dream freaks and Froese himself will be able to differentiate between this and 'Rubycon'".
Because they are nearly nearly as good, Stuntman and Rubycon, aren't they? :wink:


yep :) Journalists, they're a weird breed :)
It dismays me to think that 'every'* TD release has been slatted, and yet we like them so much and yet....we still keep reading the reviews, funny really :D

*I've never seen a bad review of Exit (so far ;))


No bad reviews of Exit. Be glad you weren't in the Netherlands at the time of it's release.


Ah, it's all Dutch to me ;)

My favorite EF album will always be Aqua. I'm not sure why. It seems to have been his most inspired recording. I like the free-form style of it, mostly.

I suppose if you had to nail me down to just one, I would have to pick Ages. I simply love Metropolis and Icarus, two absolutely sublime works IMHO. I also enjoy the percussion work on Pizarro and Atahualpa. Of course, the rest of Edgar's solo works are well worth listening to as well. Strangely, though, I would rank Epsilon last on my list. Maybe I should give it a listen again. Marouba Bay, as I recall, is pretty a darn good track.


I completely agree with you. Ages is the best. it really fits in the albums from TD in that time. Great tracks which would easily compare with TD.
I still play it from time to time.

There is a lot of good material on Ages. I saw that a lot of people seem to like Tropic of Capricorn, however, which is one track I have a very hard time with. I have played it many times, thinking that, because of its length, there must be something to it, but it always ends up being like when you keep opening the refrigerator looking for something to eat even though you've just opened it several times and there is really nothing in there. :cry: Sorry, but that's the feeling I get every time I play TOC. It really should have been about 8 minutes long, not 20, and there is not a single TD track I would say that about. But I do like Ages overall, really. In fact, the LP took me a while to find back in the mid-80s, so I treasure it greatly (I live in Pittsburgh and I found in it San Francsico--now that's a lot of searching! :D ).

Hey, them's fightin' words. :wink:

Seriously, when I was a reporter for a daily afternoon paper back in the 1980s, I got a chance to review a couple of TD records. Needless to say, I gave them pretty decent reviews. (See, not all journalists are bad. And yes, I will admit, I am "weird.")

Well i must have about 200 reviews of TD records, and if you can spot in any logic or thought process going on then you're better man than me.

All I can say is, I may not know much about music (art, literature, etc.), but I know what I like.

My absolute favourite is Pinnacles ! Stunning in every sense, and because it reminds me a lot of Poland 8)
