This is a beautifully balanced body of Ambient work.
While a lot of current ambient producers tend to go with a particular aesthetic, theme's or feelings
throughout the duration of an album, for me an album of continued melancholy or very formulaic
production methods can become quite exhausting.

Brendan has expertly judged the selections from calm and serine haunting passages to moments
of swelling dramatic soundscapes to minimalistic rhythmic synth pulses that perhaps
reflects his techno roots but also conveys a certain Berlin School sensibility,
while retaining its own identity.

On a technical note the vinyl is amongst some of the quietest I've ever heard,
so no surface noise is audible during even the quieter moments.

Overall a stunning album presented beautifully and very a precious addition to my collection..

Quite a nice record. Spinning during times of uncertainty will bring you comfort. 45 rpm, right ? Sounds good at both 33 and 45 in my opinion.
