Lookout Eno, here comes Kirby! This is brilliant ambient work. A soundscape that evokes the deepest of emotion, the purest of thought. The decay in the mastering gives this album a warm effect – almost crumbly and down to earth. I hear melodies inside of melodies surrounding great drones who crackle and whisper into the night’s air.

I am in Love with this composition. These songs are extremely cinematic. I’m conjuring up scenes scattered about my vast memory behind the beauty of this soundtrack.

Turn it up and this music can be very engaging if you want it to be. Turn it down a bit for that perfect head music to gather, collect and think about days ahead. Very contemplative work, though I’m not sure it was intentionally made so by the artist. I am fascinated by the new sounds of tings and rings and drops and plops of various chimes and bells. Reluctantly distant piano plays a strong but subtle role throughout. This music is actually quite complex if you really want to dig into it.

I mostly love how it feels while you’re listening to it. Because isn’t that what true art is really about? Making you feel something? All great artists have the ability to touch another living soul without even being on the same continent as the affected individual.

This music is like a celestial shower of hope and wonder, leaving you breathless at dawn. Go ahead, indulge. Bundle up and get together, you can’t go wrong when Kirby’s in the room.
