I simply put this record in my "Favourite Top 25 records" list.
It is easy thinking so because Golden Morning Breaks just fit the gap into the music landscape where no other has ever did in a such introverse way and with so much feminine touch.
This music let you have an astral connection and establish a bridge with nature and inner soul.
The listeners soul is warmed by every sound touch and the use of recorded silence background noise here is genial part of a track.
Every musical trickery is treated with a very researched trained magistry of combining multiple sources into the mix that often Colleen uses, and overral suggests and deep meditative feeling based on a spare ensemble of soundings: modern electronics and traditional forgotten instruments like harpsichord.

This is a catartic trip with the climax and immense "Everything Lay Still" wich lead us through 10:46 minutes to the other silence end.

It is very interesting that this sublime feerique work comes from a young musician, and is even more interesting that she is a girl, and French.

Colleen's _The Golden Morning Breaks_ is like a slice of pure bucolic bliss, from the cello and looped guitar on the opener, “Summer Water” to the delicate and dream-like “Floating in the Clearest Sea.” With an array of classical instruments at her disposal (including harpsichords, music boxes, and zithers), she creates these otherworldly landscapes. “The Happy Sea” ends with some nautical horns, and “I’ll Read You a Story” sounds like a lullaby for a sad little girl. The tracks continually change and morph: continual hum on “Bubbles Which on the Water Swim” cedes to the guitar, while the sparse title track ends with a plucking frenzy. The final track, “Everything Lay Still,” starts with windchimes, but builds slowly to a gracious buzz and fades away to nothingness. Sublime.
