After a successful overture with Marcus Henriksson (Son Kite), in 2001 Sebastian Mullaert created an album in different style. It was the beginning of downbeat music - the soft mix of psychedelic ambient and chillout-downtempo. This album became one of the most famous ambient CDs ever done. And it is not by accident: this is a perfectly worked disc.
Starts with low frequencies Quintessence. As the title says, this track bases the whole album, however, it's just the beginning. At the end, we get some piano samples, too, which provide a beautiful overall view. What's Up has more dynamism, although it starts in a low key, and it surprises unexpected. Restricted Flow is a very interesting part of the disc. The beginning is maybe the nicest and most beautiful floating soundscape I ever heard, and continues with a deep pulsating, turns into a minimalistic tale. Get It Done is the shortest and lightest track, but it is really good, too. Then, we are "Meeting With Strange Species". An other exciting kick: with a sample like saxophone, it sounds jazzy, however, it's a very trippy, deep and pleasant track. With Trying Outwards, the atmosphere gets warmer: a mediterran journey with really emotional and melancholic feeling. Delicate Passage starts to work off the CD and Searching Inwards closes it with very cold and deep sound, it could be a soundtrack for a morning in winter.

If someone ask me to tell what my ten absolutely favorite discs are, Ooze's Where The Fields Never End would be one.
