SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars This album sounds a bit like Tangerine dream's "White eagle", "Hyperborea" and some of their soundtracks of the corresponding years. There is omnipresent, varied and lively beat sequencers and many discrete keyboards layers. There are melodic keyboards and background floating streams of keyboards. All is recorded in very interlocking multi- sequenced patterns; it is mostly repetitive, but never dull. Froese has always this subtle way to merge his electric guitar sound with the keyboards arrangements. The keyboards layers are so well made that one may easily pretend it is a true Tangerine Dream's album, featuring the 3 official members of the early 80's! It is a very good album if you want to relax.

2 stars This solo effort of Froese shows that he has not lost the gift for good atmospheric and entrancing electronic music yet. Especially the opening track stands above anything he created since. However, after the opening track (that sounds a lot like Froese's 1979 album Stuntman by the way) things slide down again. The Light Cone is another piece in Stuntman style that is particularly new age in sound, and so is Walkabout.

In short, this music is pleasant, harmless, soothing and enjoyable. It is decidedly less interesting then any of Froese's 70's albums and another album for completists. I sometimes wish I wasn't one myself... I would have a lot more time for more interesting music!

Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I would recommend any of Edgar Froese's five studio albums from the seventies. They all have merit, and if you can avoid the ones Froese has re-recorded you will be doing yourself a huge favour. "Pinnacles" was released in 1983 and is still quite a good album but not as organic as the seventies releases. I guess it depends what you are into when it comes to Electronic-Prog.

"Specific Gravity Of Smile" opens with atmosphere and this synth that sounds like whistling. Sequencers 1 1/2 minutes in. The whistling synths stop as other synth sounds replace it. An electronic beat dominates until 7 minutes in and then it turns spacey. Sounds slowly pulse later. "The Light Cone" is one I can't get into at all because the electronics have a higher pitch to them. "Walkabout" opens with what sounds like a gong then atmosphere and an electronic beat take over.

"Pinnacles" is the 22 minute side long closer. We get an uptempo electronic soundscape and the higher pitched synths sound just like the ones on Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" which was released a couple of years after this one. They will come and go early on. It settles 7 1/2 minutes in as the sound changes. An electronic beat comes in before 9 minutes.

Not a bad album but I miss the warmth of the mellotron from earlier releases.
