5 stars It is the year 1976 A.D. The mid of the 70's. Lots of progressive music is composed during this year, from many areas and somewhere in Europe, in Germany, where Tangerine Dream is in his golden era of analogue synthesisers albums, somebody recorded an album. New Age of Earth- the album and composer - Manuel Gottsching.

New Age Of Earth is a work composed exclusively by M. Gottsching, the main member from Ashra/Ash Ra Tempel, and it represents a standard album for krautrock/electronic/new age music.

All we've got here is pure electronic music, and from the top. Four tracks, one more beautiful than another. If you want a nice evening or an afternoon standing and meditating, or even a headache, just simply pass over the first song (which is a little bit agitating) and you've got the perfect prescription. Very atmospheric and lushing keyboards, together with the warm influx of electric guitar in the end of the second and fourth track, had made New Age of Earth a masterpiece. I can't realize even now how a single musician could compose only by himself such unique compositions. I admit I had listened to this album hundreds of times and never get bored of it. I recommend track No. 3 - Deep Distance - as the main song of this album the last one - Nightdust - as a unique experience in floating in deep spaces and self-introspection, track No 2 - Ocean of Tenderness - in daydreaming and spending with the one who you love; and the first song - Sunrain - a splendid krautrock song, a s simply as it can be, but beautiful.

5 stars, really!
