3 stars Ages is a rare double album recently reissued by Virgin after to have disappeared during a moment from the market. Globally the recordings feature interesting analog synth essays with a taste for rhythmical electronic passages and spacey atmospheres. It is very closed to TD's production at the same period notably with Stratosfear, Sorcerer. In sense of achievement and quality the compositions are rather unequal. Metropolis is an excellent spacey tune with obsessional drums parts and electronic hallucinatory effects. Era of the Slaves with its moody, ethereal synth parts is a bright reminiscence of TD's best analog compositions. Pizarro and Atahuallpa includes an impressive drum set played by Klaus Dinger, occasionally invited by Froese to provide rhythmical accompaniments. The other tracks don't really deserve a particular attention. The long epic track Tropic of Capricorn opens with interesting elements but it tends to be boring after more than 15 minutes running. Icarus is a rather common, accessible piece with no really imaginative ideas.A pleasant listening but but it's not a problem if you just pass it.
