Dalinetopia, recorded in 2004 and released on Edgar Froese's new-founded label Eastgate Music in January 2005 is his first proper solo album with completely new material since Pinnacles (1983). According to Edgar Froese's liner notes the music is "composed in honor and respect of an artist character who touched more than anybode else the level of subconscious all human beings have in common". This man, of course, is Salvador Dali, the Spanish artist. Back in 1967, Edgar Froese had visited Dali in Spain, and obviously he was strongly impressed: a first reminiscence to Dali he made back in 1979 with the composition A Dali-esque Sleep Fuse.
Most of the music material is quite similar to other solo material Edgar Froese has released during the last years, though there are a few exceptional pieces -- especially the long Dalumination.
The collage-esque cover artwork reminds of other recent artwork Edgar Froese has done for Tangerine Dream releases (especially East). The backside of the booklet features four photos of Edgar Froese and Salvador Dali, taken back in 1967 at Dali' residence in Port Lligat (Spain).
