5 stars I am so glad to discover this multi-national group (Hungarian, Polish, German) DOM. It's too bad this album isn't more widely available like many other great Krautrock bands. Maybe if Edge of Time was on Ohr then you'd be seeing more widely available reissues that say, the ones on Second Battle and a couple others (used copies of the reissues aren't cheap, but not as expensive as the original LPs). The album was originally released on Melocord, although since that time it's became a real collector's headache due to repros floating about. This would have easily fit on Ohr as it's very much in that similar style to many of the groups found on there. I get reminded of the more "far out" moments of Pink Floyd, such as "A Saucerful of Secrets", "Careful With that Axe, Eugene" and "Cirrus Minor" crossed with Kosmische folk and a bit of Alpha Centauri-era Tangerine Dream. The music tends to be laid back, with a rather ominous vibe throughout. This album really truly blew me away. The production is top quality, the production is much better quality than the first two Tangerine Dream albums, you'd never know this was released on some tiny label, but what really matters is the wonderful spacy vibe I dig. Now if a new reissue becomes available at a reasonable price, I can seem many Krautrock fans taking to this, this is one of the finest obscure Krautrock albums you'll hear!
