It can be very difficult to write about an artist with a reputation like Edgar Froese. Such thoughts can cloud one's judgment and objectivity. But Froese has not been on the e-music forefront for 30-plus years for nothing. He has stayed there because he is a great musician. Pinnacles showcases his penchant for gentle melodies, heavy sequences, and light atmospheres. This disc is firmly in the middle of the Berlin school, of which Froese is a founder. This CD will appeal to fans of Alpha Wave Movement, Klaus Schulze, Dweller at the Threshold, and Radio Massacre International. It is an important e-music CD.
