A really strong drone record. The first track "winter arc" shimmers, a bit like Brian Eno's "thursday afternoon" only much slower and meditative. Now, let me go back to bed and dream.

Before I got the album I read somewhere that it was impossible to play loud. This is in fact the case and only adds to the overall appeal of this gorgeous slab of shifting drone and field recordings.
Two looong tracks that require undivided attention but at the same time can fulfill a need for background noise. This is by far Chalk's most focused effort. I have always found that the two 20+minute track format has suited him best (Godfall, Shadows From the Album Skies, The Days After). Great to play while meandering through a forest. Sounds slowly creep into the mix and it's hard to decipher if what you are hearing is that of the natural world or of Chalk's delicate sound palette. Simply put: A perfect record.
