i think Froeze released  some more but which one among those got you highter ,for me ,probably Epsilon but aqua was amazing and Stuntman has interesting sounds and melodies , Macula is very spacey and Ages could has been a better single albumErmm

Aqua is the only one I have, so I won't vote, but it's very good.

I don't have Macular Transfer, but I was kind of disappointed by Stuntman and Pinnacles.   Ages could have used some editing.  Aqua is very good. I was told that Epsilon was a longer version of TD's Mysterious Semblance but it's unfortunately not.  It is still quite good. 

Aqua gets my vote.

I dig Stuntman from the list but highly recommend Orange Light Years compilation from a few years back...Talking to Maddox!

I've only got 3 of those (Stuntman,Epsilon and Pinnacles) plus a very nice 2 cd compilation 'Beyond The Storm'.. Shocked that Stuntman has no votes. Its a close run thing between that and Pinnacles which is not that different to TD's Hyperborea. Instead of the frozen arctic wastes you have the Australian outback as the focus. Really excellent album with the superb 20 minute title peice centre stage so that gets my vote even though it still leaves Stuntman on nil.

"Epsilon..." is NOT a longer version of "Mysterious Semblance..." at all! "Mysterious Semblance" sounds cold; "Epsilon.." is definitely a very warm album. "Aqua" is also very good, but while "Aqua" gets 4 stars from me "Epsilon..." gets five.

The shout is not directed at tdfloyd but at the one who told him "Epislon..." is "like "Mysterious...".

I used to neglect Froese's solo-albums but they have continued to grow on me.
Epsilon is really beautiful, but make sure you get the original, the remixed version is buried under new age dross.

"Aqua" is the only one I've heard, and I didn't like it.  Sleepy

All is good. No harm, no foul.

I haven't  had contact with the person who told me that Epsilon was "Mysterious Semblance Part 2" in years unfortunately.  

 Does anyone have the original version of Epsilon and the release that EF made in 2005?  I know that he has a penchant for remixing  / adding  instruments to his older works with TD. I find some good and others don't come close to the original.    Opinions for or against the 2005 work?
