The inlay folds out into a 60cm x 12cm calendar plotting the band's tracks, releases, gigs and photos in chronological order. It also has schematic representations of the runtimes of the featured tracks. As on several ST releases, some of the artwork is based on rectangles in the Golden Ratio.

Track 7 title is a lower-case Greek letter pi.

"all the universes, the past, the present, the future and paralleled ones are all part of a unified whole and there is no one of those which is distinguished objectively as the one which exists"

More like a compilation than an album, most of the tracks here have been included on their previous releases, Taj and Swell date as far back as ST1&2 (1993). Isabella's Dream is a version of Dreams that was included on TEX2 (1994) AKA "La Rêve De Beatrice" of ST4 (1994).

There is a lot of overlapping tracks over the 8 volumes (ST1 to ST8). First time encounter with Salt Tank I reckon this is the one to start with as it draws on all of those volumes. A testament to quality progressive music of the 90's.

Eugina (Pacific Diva), on here is one of the most beautifully crafted deep progressive house tunes ever produced. It appeared on many mix compilations of '96/'97. When I read of people listing Robert Miles' "Children", as being one of their favourite "emotive" records, I always think eh?...ugh! And wish they'd have a listen to this instead. The vocal sample, by the way, is nicked from an old Tori Amos tune.
