"The Lost Pieces in this collection were composed between 1988-1992. Some have appeared on limited edition multi-artist compilations. Others were not created for any particular project. Instead, they documented and somehow externalized moments of personal transition in ways that only music can do. Often I'd loose track of these pieces shortly after they were recorded. Then, months or even years later, I'd be sifting through boxes of tapes (many left unmarked, a bad habit that continues!) looking for something else and would be surprised to rediscover a piece I had composed in a moment of private inspiration. I would feel a strange sense of shifting as the flood of emotions that originally infused the music would be unleashed once again. Now that these lost pieces have been found, for me they take on a new and interesting life altogether, one that was conceived unconsciously in separate yet interconnected stages over several years." April 1993

This is a great disc if you are unaware of where to start with the mass of Steve Roach's releases. It's hard to imagine that a lot of this material never found a place on another release initially, as it contains some of the best material ever put to disc by him.

During the first four tracks of this release he mixes styles well with floaty ambience, dry tribal beats, and analog sequencer material. From 'Full Moon Prophecy" onward however, he really shines with some of his most atmospheric and deep material ever. Not only that, but I can distinguish sounds that have appeared from different spans of time of recording. Namely tracks that sound like they are from his Structures In Silence, Artifacts, and Desert Solitaire periods. Therefore, it can be enjoyed by experienced Steve Roach listeners who can reflect on different sounds he has visited, or a newer listener can get a good indication of his various 'earlier' styles of making beautiful, deep & relaxing music.
