Like elvish waves slowly moving through dawn fog, Dream Circle is a mesmerising, majestic and infinitely graceful unravelling of a new day, an almost ritualistic yet so very noble and dignified greeting to the returning light.

The calm and serenity brought by the morning light slowly rising from beneath the horizon, filtering through the hills and trees and houses like fingers slowly run through hair, and the transformation of the mind state that it brings as the shadows and contours are shifting, is something I think no man could ever be indifferent to. This record brings out the exact same feelings in me, and has been played nearly every weekend morning for a long time now. For me the purpose of music is to lead my mind into places it cannot always go on its own, and Dream Circle achieves this better than pretty much everything else.

If it were possible, I'd rate this so that it has a perpetual one point lead over every other record I own. Despite its length, it could very well be that eventually I will have listened to this more times than any other piece of music in the entire world.

A cd that is very fractal in its nature. One section is representative of the overall work.
It's wallpaper music that you don't have to actively participate in when you have it on, put it on, sit down and breathe to, do your mundane things, take a nap, focus, etc.
music you use more than music you listen to.
