A CD in 2015, seriously?! Please put out at least an EP on vinyl, this is too great for digital only!

David Morley crafts some of the best music my ears have heard. Empire's End is breathtaking IMO. So is this album.

It's rare these days that I get a chance to listen to an album in it's entirety. However, during a commute into town earlier today I had the fortune to stumble across this. TIM's review below pretty much sums up what I was going to say. An album I would recommend with an excellent downtempo vibe throughout.

The new album from David Morley was quite a welcomed surprise. I do not tend to think his last full length was actually an album but more than a compilation of unreleased and earlier material. So sanctuary seems to be his most true full length in some time. This sounds more like a period piece and a more coherent album than Ghosts. Both are excellent no doubt. There is a an analog funk here that takes it to another different level for me. Somber melodic space funk everywhere. Brood starts of the album. Has an early Autechre sound to it. If you like 1994 sounds like on Apollo, David is the best at taking those sounds and creating new material with. These all sound very retro. Rising is a perfect example of this. Sublime. Definitely a immediate favorite. Had to rewind a few times before track 3. Then track 3 was even better. My favorite on the album after first listen through. Made me get up and dance. Takes a lot to make me smile like that. Brilliant and fun too. The two 3 minute tracks are nice bridges in the album. Poignant and beautiful. Wish they went on a little longer and were more developed. But they have charm. Tempophon is funky. David just let's the beat play. Nobody is complaining. Killer track. Prophetic and Empires End are other good ones. Some of the more melodic ones. There are still drenched in aquatic analog funk. Hopefully this album is the start of a new period in David's career. Making more new music to wow hardcore loyal fans of his sound. Like memories from 20 years ago these stand the test of time. Keep bringing more David
