Trucker is pure meditative bliss. Continues to make me emotional. Phenomenal track off a brilliant album.

Elevatorium is just.....
I've got no words.
That may sound a bit corny, but aside from the concept and context which every work of Terre possesses, all these tracks are beau-ti-ful. the sounds are living and outer spacey; repeatative but unpredictable. my precious late night soundtrack.

I am inclined to concur. Elevatorium is uncannily beautiful.

Wow. This is one of my favourite ambient CDs ever. Luscious drifting layers of repetition. Very slow, very nice. I've found myself repeatedly coming back to give it a 5. Besides the slow drift, which some find challenging, Yer Ass and Cycles are fine sound sculptures around disturbing samples... contrasting like sand in butter. Of them all, elevatorium is my favourite, taking 8 minutes of drift to build to a soft groove. As far as ambient goes, IMO, it's hard to do much better.
