The track 'Once upon a sea of blissful awareness' is definetely 1 of the most beautiful tracks ever made. Every time I hear it, it almost brings tears to my eyes. The sounds are so beautiful and full, deep and melancholic. The lyrics are mysterious and most of the time not fully comprehensible.

After more then 10 years of dedicated search for music, and after listened millions of tracks, this is for me a top 10 track. Pure magic!

Oh yes, this if you only were allowed to own one record, this should be it! The energy and twisted sounds of Simon Posford combined with the flute and harmony of Raja Ram together in an album full of surprises and world music influenses. This album is a trip to distant places and forgotten worlds, absolutely top class ambient style combined with trance.
