yes, a good album, but a little soporific to my taste.
In the same vein, check "Blackouts" (1976), "Dream and desire" (1977)

Manuel Gottsching has do better with "Inventions for electric guitars" (1974), a masterpiece
Music   In heavy rotation - Quintessence live Elizabeth hall 1971

dont get confused, if you are a fan of the progressive
electronic rock of Tangerine Dream on Stratosfear,
Force Majuere, Cyclone, Tangram? or Hyperborea.
You should listen to Ashra - New Age of Earth,
period. Ashra - The Sunrain
