5 stars One of the most Mellotron saturated albums you're ever likely to hear.

The title track 'Epsilon in Malysian Pale' is like the soundtrack for planet earth after all the humans have disappeared. A creepy, quiet, well constructed piece of electronica which stands up well even today, which is surprising considering it's completely comprised of 70's technology.

'Maroubra Bay' is a bit more like Tangerine Dream from the same period. This one has Tangerine Dream's famous arpeggiators used throughout it's entirety. It's not as sombre or as lonely sounding as the title track, but does however complement said track very well and is a bit more upbeat, without any drums or percussion of course.

This is probably my favourite Tangerine Dream or Edgar Froese recording bar none. It's also the only essential Edgar Froese album to date. If you're looking for the missing link between Rubycon and Stratosfear, look no further. It's just a pity it's so short.

Dobermensch | 5/5 |
