I usually find ambient and several IDM variants to be the Derrida of electronic music: pretentious, postmodern nonsense masqueraded as something deep.
This is not that. This is real. Meaningful, lush, tactfully layered, smooth. Simply and absolutely beautiful ambient music. The only way it should be.

When are we getting a repress of this? I don't feel like paying $200 for a piece of music.

Weird, I've had track 2 from this disc for a long time, but it's named "Mystic Institute - Ob-Selon Mi-Nos (Re-Painted By Global Communication)". Any ideas what the story is here?

I bought this when it first came out and for whatever reason it did not grab me then ... but it has my attention now! Beautiful, lush, sublime it's mesmerizing from start to finish. Whatever made me want to listen to this, it is the perfect soundtrack for my life right now. Serendipitous.

We all need to create a petition directed to Sony Music for the reissue of this fantastic album.

The whole world needs to hear Pitchard and Middleton's timeless music again, too bad they don't work together any more....

This was always one of my favorite albums throughout the most formative period of my life. My 'favorite' song on it changed, from the most immediate and obvious at first (14:31, etc.) to probably the most subtle but powerful (4:14). I grew right along with this.

I bought this CD 15 years ago when I was just getting into ambient music, it's reputed to be a classic. I found it really disappointing, some nice textures, but predicable plodding melodies which simply couldn't engage my interest. I recently had another listen 15 years later and came to the same conclusion. I wanted to like it, but I honestly can't understand what all the hype is about. This is the most uninteresting release I've heard in the ambient genre
