4 stars Edgar Froese's Epsilon in Malaysian Pale is unsurprisingly similar to the music found on Phaedra and Rubycon by Tangerine Dream, of which he was one of the founders.

The title-track is very slow and serene, and creates a great airy atmospheric dreamscape that kicks off with the sounds of the jungle. It's very relaxing, and the way the first half of the track drones and builds up the the second half of steady electronic pulsing that leads to an end of drifting melancholy is very effective in drawing the listener in.

"Maroubra Bay" is remarkably sinister and gloomy for its name, but after a few minutes of experimental sounds, another steady electronic pulse is brought in from the background with soaring mellotron and additional keyboard sounds caress the listener, and eventually are coupled with the sounds of the ocean waves washing upon the beach.

This Edgar Froese solo album's cover art, title, and music all make a fairly convincing mental image of its subject matter, which I didn't originally think that anyone from Tangerine Dream would be able to pull of. This really is a great album, and is a fantastic choice of material to listen to rather than post-Force Majeure Tangerine Dream, especially if you're looking for more of the dark and airy atmospheric delight from Phaedra and Rubycon.
