4 stars This was actually Richard's first solo album recorded in 1976, but he didn't release it until 1978. This album pays homage to the book "Dune" a favourite of Pinhas'.

The first 7 tracks accounting for over 22 minutes feature Richard offering up a variety of electronic soundscapes with his moog front and center.TANGERINE DREAM came to mind at times and while this is pretty good it's the final song at over 30 minutes that makes this album a must for me. Richard's HELDON band mates help out on this one with Auger on percussion and Batard on bass. Pinhas offers up some Fripp-like solos as well as plenty of mellotron and electronics.This song would fit well on a HELDON album no doubt.

I think I still prefer "Ice Age" but this is where his solo career started, and that 30 minute epic makes this a 4 star record for me.
