Brilliant IDM from the mid 90s. This album stands out amoungst quite a lot of release's in that it feels more cohesive and melodic not only that the sounds and textures are dark. Northern Dark is not a dance track and is as dark and foreboding as a Siberian winter evening. Robert records as Source which is straight ahead in yer face techno/acid this is a lighter side of his compositional skills meaning every track isnt at 120bpm! A long standing go to in my library but then again most of the early Apollo stuff is because the releases where high quality in aesthtics!

Mentasm sounds like a phantasm. Clearly not from this world if he cannot appreciate this masterpiece. I know taste is relative, subjective bla bla... This dude is clue less. I repeat, MASTERPIECE.

Better check Autocreation "Mettle" on Inter-Modo and Solar Quest "Orgship" on SSR instead. You will not be disappointed.

No, did not like this one... It came out in january 94, and maybe was pointing out that the so-called "ambient" music had run it course. Well produced, well polished, but...where's the originality?
Listen to it if you're a newcomer and it'll blow your mind. But if you are already deep-rooted into the scene, you'll instantly recognize sounds from other records (Namlook, Reload...) not very cleverly used. Thing a bit annoying is so many people were raving about this record when in my opinion it lacks so much creativity.

<B>Robert Leiner</B> a.k.a. <B>Source Experience</B> made beautiful progressive trance, here in a more ambient kind of <I>John Digweed meets Banco de Gaia</I> treatment: less pulsating and with more ambient soundscapes. Again a completely overlooked album of very high quality.
