It was a real joy to see a new submission by Atma, and an even bigger joy that he has not given up on the true music scene by abandoning CDs. As soon as I saw the submission I ordered the CD from PsyShop, and here we are, a week later.
I have to admit, I could not wait a week to listen, but I'm now hearing it properly.

His second album, The Secrets Of Meditation is among my favorite albums ever, and trying to trump perfection is not easy. Evidently...
The album starts very average and is quite forgettable until we reach track 2, which brings out the same feelings I got from The Secrets Of Meditation. Then, sadly, I did not hear anything interesting on the album until getting to track 8, where I once again start to actively listen, since the music is actually drawing my focus away from my hand-in assignment.
An atmosphere with layers of sound working in harmony is coming from the speakers, and it is both the old and the new Atma I am hearing. It continues to the next track and grows even stronger on the final track, which is the cornerstone of the album, just like The Rise Of The Overman on The Secrets Of Meditation. It is a beautiful track and the signature of Atma cannot be mistaken. It is truly mesmerizing, with a melodramatic and captivating sound, where the keyword is harmony. This track alone almost earns the album a fifth star.
It is nowhere near as good an album as his second one, but if we do not compare them to each other, and just take this piece of music for what it is, it is actually a good listen. Artists inevitably evolve, and we are obligated to judge each release individually. Recommended!
