Atmosphere: Electronic Suite is an album by Eloy Fritsch, a keyboard player known for his work in the progressive rock group Apocalypse. As a solo artist he creates cosmic electronic music. The closest comparison would be probably Vangelis, if considering his early work, which included many analogue instruments. Nevertheless, Fritsch has found his own style within melodic Electronic music framework. The opus reveals once again Fritsch’s ecological convictions: he presently defends the virtues of the gas envelope that allow everyone to live on Earth: the Atmosphere, a theme which is carried over to the album art featuring a cloud formation juxtaposed with outer space. The music is sweeping, majestic, and at times orchestral. It moves from clear melodic themes that are somewhat earthly to the more experimental out-there stuff in the middle of the album, only to return to anthemic epicness by the end.
