'Definitive' is by it's own axiomatic construct illogical, as this is a compilation of a massive body of work by Namlook, usually in collaboration with other artists. But as a cherry picking sampler of past glories (most of them hard to purchase, then costly if you do) it's pretty damn essential. Everyone will have their favourites, and for me the best tracks are.... well all them, actually. The Sequential selections are ominous without drifting into bombast; the Air bits breathy (pun intended...apologies) and the Hearts of Space choice is sublime. Some of Namlook's albums were licensed out by the Rising High label (and many are now worth as much as the releases on Fax), and this compilation presents many of the highlights in a continuous mix. Thanks must go to Namlook and Rising High, and the indefatigable and inestimable Mixmaster Morris. Cheers.

The title of this release sounds kinda boastful until you realise that this is a compilation of tracks from probably the most respected (and certainly the most prolific!) Ambient producer, Pete Namlook. The music here is alternately beautiful, haunting and otherworldly; the top track for me is the eastern-influenced <i>Santur</i> taken from the excellent album <i>Silence</i> which was also licensed to Rising High in its entirety.

By the way, for the benefit of those who didn't spend their high school science lessons looking up the "interesting" stuff in chemistry textbooks, the cover image is a representation of a molecule of LSD... but with the benzene ring replaced by the Rising High logo. :)
