Space Shamanism from another dimension. The album cover represents the Southwest native americans destroyed by siphilization you can see far in the distance. A must have thanks to the great contribution of Suso Saiz with his hypnotics guitar sounds. One of the most incredible tribal ambient music from a genius.

Absolutely incredible music by Steve Roach from the early 90s. Imagine you are squatting with a tribe of native americans some 10000 years ago around a fire and going with them in their dreams, seeing visions of old ages passed in the flaming fire before your very eyes, in the dark of a magical night out in the wilderness. A spiritual journey through nature, an album that has to be experienced as a whole from start to end, the tracks are just loose milestones on your journey and flow together effortlessly. The two closing tracks are some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard, and it's really a nice touch towards the end when you hear wolves howling in the distance. Thank you Steve Roach, and thank you Jorge Reyes!

This is one of the Top 10 of ambient releases of all times. Masterpiece! Album effectively merges best of two worlds - electronic and acoustic music.
