3 stars Make no mistake this is an album that broke boundaries for 1970. There are many occassions on listening to this piece of music that amaze me in it's ability to confirm it is '' Many years ahead of it's time status". from the opening " plunge" into water scene to the interspacial ethereal ealry TD years obscurity Krautrock feel. IMHO Krautrock led the way to firstly ensuring dimensional listening beyond normal boundaries and secondly evolving from the ambient sparse cold frosty moonlike landscape sounds to more cohesive enigmatic electronic hypnotic sound of the mid seventies. Popol Vuh were a forerunner with Affenstunde as were TD with Zeit or Alpha Centauri. Popol Vuh went onto bigger and better thematic role playing but this history making album endorses what pioneers of other dimensional sounds that could be created.There are no specific tracks that stand out but part one assumes the format for the whole album and ensure a worthwhile prescence simlar to that of Klaus Schulze's Moondawn. A worthy 3 and a half stars maybe four for sheer tenacity.
