4 stars This TD record was released on the Private music label, the connoisseur of the good New Age by excellence. We expect to have sound a bit like Yanni or Eddie Jobson. Well, it is effectively the case, but the compositions are less sophisticated. The record has lots of drums, sometimes electronic ones. (like on Genesis' Home by the sea) Edgar Froese shows he is still able to play good electric guitar solos (too hot for my chinchilla, paradise cove) I like Mount Shasta, full of dynamic clean and pure string-like keyboards through dynamic beat and mysterious floating keyboards sounds. The piano on "twenty nine palms" gives me the feeling it is played by Eddie Van Halen! "radio city" is a catchy hard rock guitar riffs through symphonic orchestra-like keyboards. Finally, a very romantic saxophone on Long island sunset! This record sounds a bit like Livemiles, except it is more varied. In my opinion, there is too much bland sequenced beat to put it on the Private music label.
