4 stars Add another halfstar. If you were to draw a straight line in between the Zeit-Atem period albums and the Ricochet-Stratosfear albums this one would stand a third of the way and Rubycon wouls stand at the second third of the way. The major difference between Atem and Phaedra (other than their fight with the great Ohr label and their signing to Virgin Records ) is that the sounds produced here are more structured , more symphonic (or less nightmarish if you please) and that there are times at which theire is a semblence of a ruthm track. This is an absolute major album both historically and artistically. For anybody who has doubt about this being prog ('m speaking here of the younger generation who did not live this 70's discovering album by album these groundbreaking soundscapes and hailing Froese & Co. as musical adventurers - Indiana Jones at Sonic Temple of Heaven) , imagine that all these sounds of birds and waves that you ear, were made with almost prototype synths and all of those albums were revolutionary - therefore progressive by essence.
