5 stars Generally, "Ages" seems to be the least popular of Froese's 70's solo albums. I just can't see why! This should be considered the crown of his solo works!!!!!! It's dark, intense,and mellow and contains a greater variety of themes than any of his other albums. As a CD this also offers the best value since the original was a double-LP (the last LP-track has been removed to fit the CD-format). "Nights Of Automatic Women" (9:00) shows the greatest step away from the sound of Tangerine Dream and is much more heavy, containing intense drumming and furious, hypnotic synth-loops. The simple melody of "Children's Deeper Study" (4:21) is just lovely and makes me laugh!! As I said: The album is varied and has many "faces". This makes "Ages" the ultimate starting point for the solo works of Edgar Froese! Highly recommended and five massive stars!!

Beginners info: - Edgar Froese is one of the members of Tangerine Dream. - The music is instrumental and monotonous. - Stylewise this belongs to "electronic ambient" or "progressive electronic".

1971 | 5/5 |
