Wonderful and underated album IMHO........."Tropic of Capricorn" is a classic as is "Metropolis" and the track you mention "Nights of Automatic Women" is great..i also like "Icarus"................. 8)

The newer2004 version has a different track list "Children's Deeper Study" which is on the Original album and CD is Replace by "Golgotha and The Circle Closes" which was on the original vinyl release,but NOT the original CD release.....

On the 2004 version "Ikarus" is the opening track not "Metropolis :wink:

Ages has always been my favourite EF solo album. The piano part on Tropic of Capricorn is worth the price of the CD alone, I hope this gets played at the TD plays EF show, it's very simple yet utterly beautiful. The other tracks (Icarus, Metropolis, Golgatha, etc) are all top notch and Klaus Krieger's drums just add that certain something extra. Hopefully TD will draw on this album heavily for the upcoming show.

I haven't listened to this one in a while. I'll have to rectify that soon. I think this (along with Stuntman) ranks among Edgar's best solo works. I particularly love Icarus, Metropolis, and Pizarro and Atahualpa with its wonderful drum work from Krieger.
