Edgar Froese's solo career has spanned all of the years since Tangerine Dream first signed with Virgin and represents an important and less showy side to his music. It has to be said, though, that his solo releases tend to be less well structured and show far less development than some of the contemporaneous TD releases. There are times, indeed, when they seem to be little more than sketches or musical doodlings, slipped into circulation to keep the fans quiet! Fortunately, that isn't the case here: "Aqua" was the first Froese solo release (dating from 1974, shortly after "Phaedra") and it is also just about the best, I'd say, with the music being almost as fulsome as the full band's output of the time.
Stylistically, "Aqua" is something of a hybrid between TD's newer Mellotron-driven sound of "Phaedra" and earlier works, like "Zeit", which used large amounts of 'pure' electronics from early synthesisers like the VCS3, and the Farfisa organ. The two major works on the album are 'Aqua' and 'NGC891'. These both add a new element-rare in TD's music generally-taped environmental sounds.
'Aqua' uses the sound of running water and gurgling synth voices to introduce a 17-minute study of water-like sounds, beneath brittle, reverberating rattles that suggest the creak and groan of large ice structures, and soaring choirs of synthetic voices. The work is both peaceful and eerie, and very reminiscent of the second movement of "Zeit", 'Nebulous Dawn'. This is one of Froese's (and TD's) finest tracks.
The 10-minute long 'Panorphelia' makes use of the pulsed white noise idea of 'Movements of a Visionary' from "Phaedra".

This is, quite simply, one of THE greatest ambient releases of all time. A glorious, ethereal journey thru the deepest primordial waters of oceans of innerspace to the most mysterious, far-flung regions of outerspace it stands as being both the perfect accompaniment to deep meditation or simply staring out of the window on a peaceful sunday afternoon. Mr Froese has succeeded in bringing a pure, transcendental alpha wave orgasm to to the ears of the fortunate listener with this veritable pillar of cosmic, aural ecstasy. In short, anyone with even the slightest proclivity to chill out for chilling outs sake NEEDS this album. Indeed, if and when the people of Earth travel beyond the stars and meet intelligent, extra terrestrial life then this album should become our planets inter-galactic anthem. Buy or die basically!

Fantastic music from the 1970's that has stood the test of time. As good as the best of Tangerine Dream and certainly more interesting than the hippity hoppity R&B nonsense of today. And thanks for supplier for meeting the order on time.
