Album contains 12 compositions recorded in the Frikirkjan church in Reykjavik applying computer, organs, synthesizer, piano, microphone and guitar amplifier. It is important to mention that while recording famous composer, sound engineer from Australia Ben Frost has worked on this rich, harmonious and high – quality sound. Pulse is felt in music while spacious atmospheres, piercing melodies are dominating. The mature, contribution and devotion of an artist are shown by sequential development of emotionality which leads to euphoria step by step. Subtle and aesthetic noise isn’t tiring, vice versa – it helps to empathize more into works. Strong motives of live sound and ecclesiastical echo – things that creates special feelings.

Definitely it is the masterpiece of modern-days, which pretends to the title of the album of the year.
