4 stars Now here is a superb find for all those who love early experimental Krautrock. "Edge Of Time" is a pure holographic folk-avant garde album recorded in early 1970 by a quartet with members from Germany, Poland and Hungary. Dom definitely reside more on the acoustic dreamy side than on the electric side with soft hand percussion, acoustic instruments, space synths and lots of flute. No question these were a true astral quartet who thru their hallucinogenic music will take you on a voyage into space. I hear traces of early PINK FLOYD, AMON DUUL II and even CLUSTER in their music, but overriding DOM's music is original. Second Battle have done a fantastic job in preserving and re-mastering this album to perfection with tons of great bonus tracks and interesting artwork. Electronic progressive psychedelia at its finest.

5 stars Edge of Time is a mesmerising psych acoustic « trip », blowing away Pink Floyd at their most « spacey » moments. This is really in German style, original kraut experimentations with organ.A very interesting release whose concept is based upon acid « test ». Their sound perfectly illustrates a psychedelic, meditative landscape. The approach is rather folk, poetic and dreamy, similar to Mythos self title album and others krautrock obscurities. The opening track starts with a peaceful acoustic guitar / flute dialogue, then comes the acoustic percussions, accelerating the rhythm. The track is punctuated by mysterious, deeply celestial organ parts, bells echoes and « weird » noises. « Silence » explores the labyrinth of our subconscious with soaring organ sounds, repetitive acoustic guitar parts and strange, atmospheric voices. After a short break of electric « chaotic » noises, mixed with flute, the climax gradually descending into silence with a heavy bass "drone". The title track begins with a bunch of hallucinatory, cacophonic noises suggesting the coming of a floating, tranquil atmosphere played on acoustic guitar and organs. The track ends with English recitative, explaining the concept of the album. « Dream » which closes the album features a fascinating, tranquil, melancholic mix for acoustic guitar and organ + a strange, psychedelic atmosphere created by manipulated sounds and xylophone. A very attractive, « primitive » acid folk album. A masterpiece that culminates the genre

4 stars Privately released album that was Dom's sole output. This (standard prog) quartet from Düsseldorf was made-up of Hungarian-born Von Baksay brothers on bass and drums, guitarist Duzakowski (most likely of Polish origins) and keyboardist Stopka (there is a chance that he is from German stock), but most of them played two or three instruments, including flute for two of them. Musically, they sounded like Saucerful or Live Ummagumma-Floyd with many passages that the pink-years Tangerine Dream would not disown if it were theirs. Between ethnic folk, cosmic music and pure psychedelia, this album is really a product of its time. The album contains four fairly long mostly instrumental tracks and came with a very bland fuchsia cover (at least the limited Cd series of '92 did), a very basic production (but fitting well the climate of the album) and a real acid-trip soundtrack (the group's named referred to one).

The opening Introitus starts on a gentle flute-guitar duo that seems to come out from a hippie pastoral fantasy soon accompanied by superb percussion. After having derailed into a dissonant digression, the track is pulled back by a deceptively delicious organ bringing back the percussion of the start, then coming to a sudden stop. This is followed by Silence, which is a very spooky affair that started rather innocently psychey with some imbedded vocals, but soon reached Zeit-period Tangerine Dream nightmarish waves to end in a quiet Hammond layer. The title track is no less-spooky really starting where Silence had left off, but it soon develops in a Floyd soundscape (I am thinking of More, here) with spoken lyrics (printed on the front cover) and soft ambiances. The closing Dreams starts out with a lengthy percussive intro, before a bell brings the track to a halt, allowing for a quiet guitar and aerial Floydian organs (thinking of Eugene's Axe in this case) to rule for a few minutes before TD soundscapes appear again

Of all the albums in this database, I think that there are very few more mind-blowing albums than Dom's sole outing. While not really essential (you'll probably have a real hard time finding a copy unless a new reissue comes), this album is certainly worth a listen if you get a chance to lay an ear on it, so I'll easily give it a fourth star.

4 stars This was a real trip ! Actually it's a concept album (I guess you could say) about taking an acid trip.These four guys are very talented mult-instrumentalists.The percussionist and the bass player are brothers who escaped the Soviet invasion of their country Hungary, while the guitar player is from Germany and the organ player is from Poland.The music is very spaced out Psychedelic / Folk with the acoustic guitar, percussion, flute and organ leading the way.

"Intruitus" opens with acoustic guitar and gentle flute before strummed guitar and percussion take over.The melody stops as we hear various sounds until the organ rises out of this chaos and gathers strength.The guitar and percussion come back as the soundscape speeds up and gets louder. "Silence" opens with waves of organ as strummed guitar comes in. Words are spoken softly and we can hear vocal melodies as well. It gets kind of strange (acid trip) after 4 minutes with voices, odd sounds and flute. It ends with some spacey organ play. The first two minutes of "Edge Of Time" is a trip in itself, then the gentle acoustic guitar and flute arrive. A more aggressive sound comes in after 4 minutes. The mood and tempo changes continue. We get some spoken vocals with strummed guitar until the flute replaces the vocals.

"Dream" opens again with various noises and sounds before the guitar replaces them. Organ and percussion arrive and then it gets freaky again (like the intro) 6 minutes in. The bonus tracks are well worth having.The first track is a four part song called "Flotenmenschen". The first two parts are quite hypnotic while the third part is strange sounding and the final part is just plain spooky. The final bonus track is called "Let Me Explain" and the first 3 minutes sound really cool the way they have arranged and used the vocal samples, you need to hear this.Then we get a beat that reminds me of early PORCUPINE TREE.

This is a gem and if you're into Krautrock or Psychedelic music you may want to take this trip.

4 stars Edge of Time is one of the highlights of the folk-on-acid lineage in the Kraut dynasty. It's an amazing trip, one that has dreamy acoustic space-folk as well as far-out sonic experiments and proto-industrial noise. It's the only album of a somewhat obscure international Krautrock band Dom which united musicians from Hungaria, Poland and Germany.

The album was first issued on CD in 1994, a dodgy affair copied from a scratchy old vinyl. The issue to get is the 2001 'Second Battle' CD, which pairs the original 1971 album to a couple of 1972 demos and a one-off 1998 recording of the Hungarian v. Baksay brothers. It's amazing how perfectly it all blends in with the original material from the 70s.

But the original material is sure the focal point, offering four 9-minute improvisations that explore the pastoral-psych path that Floyd briefly touched in 68-69 but left all too quickly again. Fans of the style will hear the mood and quality of songs such as Julia Dream, Careful with That Axe and Cirrus Minor. They get mixed with the sonic chaos of the Ummagumma studio album.

The songs are mostly instrumental but for a few whispered words and wordless oohs and aahs that float along with the music. On the parts where drums join you will also hear flashes of early Hawkwind, most notable on the title track which drones along in true Master of the Universe fashion. But this album predated In Search of Space so here is where you look if you want to know what mr. Brock was listening to in 1970. Also the band Mythos owes a lot to this album.

It took me ages to track down a properly priced CD of the album, but at last I found one in a record-shop not even 5 minutes from where I live. The message learnt, never despair! (and go living in Antwerp:) This albums is a must have if you want to claim a Kraut collection of serious standing. A near masterpiece.

Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars The main sequence of Krautrock superstars cast a long shadow across the 1970s, and hidden in the darkness were some overlooked treasures. Like this minor but precious gem from early in the decade: a one-shot project from a band few people (myself included) know much about.

Background info about the group is sketchy, at best. It was formed by two refugee brothers from Hungary after relocating to Düsseldorf; their one and only LP was privately pressed (hence its relative obscurity); and the music on it was supposedly meant to represent an acid trip gone bad (don't they all, in the long run?)

But what a trip it must have been, and continues to be today. The album is structured almost like a soundtrack to the end of innocence, divided into four long segments but really a continuous 36-minute odyssey through inner space, ranging in mood from serene to chaotic and (almost) back again. Along the way is some truly beautiful, often haunting, and sometimes scary music, beginning with the disarming Krautfolk of "Intruitus": a friendly gathering of hippies, complete with bongos, flute, and gently strummed acoustic guitars.

But don't let your guard down too soon: the music gets progressively weirder as it continues. Some of it recalls the near-death nirvana of early KLAUS SCHULZE (imagine a slightly more organic "Cyborg"); elsewhere the album approaches the uneasy bliss of an out-of-body dream state. And an almost NEU!-like motorik undercurrent surfaces on the title track, just before the otherworldly stoned poetry reading, quoted in part on the bare-bones album cover.

Other bands have tried to musically recreate a psychedelic experience, usually ending up with a lot of self-indulgent nonsense. But these guys must have at least taken a road map along for this particular trip. Imagine if the surviving members of THE PINK FLOYD had followed Syd Barrett's sad example and developed a harder drug habit: they might have made this exact same album a year or two earlier. Edge of Time? Edge of Sanity is more like it, and listening to the album is as close as an old but sensitive fuddy-duddy like me ever wants to get to a tab of lysergic acid diethylamide.

Dom never released another LP. Either they said it all right here, or else never recovered from their chemical research and development. But the rarity of this one effort only adds to its uncanny aura, still effective over forty years later.

[ Consumer windfall: the bonus tracks on the CD reissue mesh well with the lysergic melancholy of the original album. The oddball track, and one of my favorites, is the last one: "Let Me Explain", recorded three decades after the "Edge of Time" sessions and sounding like a tongue-in-cheek HOLGER CZUKAY sampling experiment, or maybe a Krautrock outtake from the Eno/Byrne album "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts". ]

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars One-album wonders Dom put out their sole album, Edge of Time, at a point when the whole "make an entire album of loose improvisational jams in a trippy mode" deal was already beginning to get a little stale - a bunch of albums in this vein had already come out and heaps of Krautrock bands were putting out similar efforts. But it manages to distinguish itself from the others, and somewhat justify its "lost classic" status, with the care and skill in evidence on the part of Dom themselves.

As on Tangerine Dream's debut album, early Pink Floyd seems to be the major inspiration (and in particular, the track A Saucerful of Secrets seems to be taken as the gold standard in space rock as far as these lads are concerned), and certainly if you dig Tangerine Dream's Electronic Meditation or the live disc from Ummagumma there's a lot to like on here.
