This album came out a year after my birth, and I consider myself blessed to have discovered it several years ago. It is truly a gem captured on recording. Hence, the very fitting name: The Pearl. It is every bit as enthralling, captivating, and mesmerizing as those gently glistening gems that lie hidden in the depths of a vast mysterious ocean.

The Pearl is one of those pieces of music that just FEELS like you've heard it before. I think it is the emotion behind this music that some of us have FELT before. To me, the main theme sails from Despair and Solemness to Pensiveness and Hope. It is a courageous piece of work, and I think it is one of the most emotionally stimulating pieces of music that Brian Eno & Harold Budd have created. Just as a Pearl forms from immaculate layers of nacre, so does this musical Pearl form from rich layers of emotion.

It deserves every one of those 5 stars.
