Blog ImageThis album is a tribute to the role model Salvador Dali, of whom Edgar met in Spain, 1967. Edgar has said that his intention about TD was to do in music, what Dali did for the visual art.
However, the inspiration is more evident in the surreal cover, than in the music. Edgar doesn't "reach that unthinkable sphere beyond all realities", as he strives for, in the slightly self-important sleevenotes. Musically compared to that, Dalinetopia is just too ordinary.
Dalinetopia is a typical outpout from the elderly Froese. Relaxing music with acceptable moments, but nothing to bear comparison with his intentions. Perhaps Dalinetiopia is too a personal album, then?
The cd distinguish itself from the fine tracks Daleroshima and Daluminacion.
Do you choose to spend time and money on this album, expect to get bored, as the exciting things are few and far between.
