fantastic album, timeless music that has melody and depth, carrying an exquisitely executed theme of summer, beach, relaxing, reflecting, and loving, all siphoned through the mind of Mark Barrott. the artwork and packaging is just the cherry on top. 5/5.

Very happy I stumbled accross this album. And this label in the past 2 years. This is a good reflection of where the label is. The 12"s are a bit more for the laid back dance floor and the full lengths are for the summer days, lounge chairs and beach. This one is particularly nice. Definitely a happy and tranquil album. All of what cafe Del Mar and Balearic sounds were aiming for in 1992-1996. Unfortunately trance took them over and they became anthems. But at the heart of Cafe Del Mar esque sounds are this. Acoustic guitars, birds chirping, beautiful synths, gentle pace and a hodgepodge of serene music to take your worries away. And compliment the scenery. This album does that. Essence for example. Think of John Beltran without techno. Or a Jose Padilla. Sacred islands is my favorite track. Simple but sublime. Wonderful. This is about as close to a perfect album in this mood as you can get. There is even an italo Mediterranean feel to the album as well. Solid A grade for this work.

Arrived today, joyfull vibes, you really need to sit down and listen to this to truely experience the message behind these songs. This is a timeless album, and so happy they have done it with the original painting on the cover. Happy vibes, mind opening, pure, simple and at the same time so complex, relaxing. If you are looking for zen then this is the cure
