A surprise gem. 99% vocal-less, just the odd barely-there female processed vox a la LSG's Into Deep, nice! Some very airy, atmospheric and expansive deep house tracks (8-12). Some really dancey straight up house tracks (1,3). Some chill/ibiza inspired beats (2). Some downtempo (5). Some acid jazz (7).

Most of the songs have the same lead-in style where the track is almost already full on but with a 1-4 minute fade-in: somewhat unique. They fade out much the same way. This is used to great effect especially in track 4.

I love the use of that fart (for lack of a better term) sound -- every 8 notes in track 2 -- ripped straight out of Ultramarine's Skyclad (one of my all-time faves). Even without the homage, this t2 is a stellar track.

Track 12 is extremely uplifting and would brighten anyone's day. Clearly sharing the top album-track spot with track 2.

I only have minor complaints. One is that t6 doesn't do much for me and it's the longest track at nearly 11 minutes. Could be a grower, could be a dud. The other is that all tracks fade-in & build to a single idea, hang around there and then fade out. They don't vary too much. Since the tracks are 5-9 minutes, you just barely start to get the impression that it's dragging a tad. But the songs are so uniformly good that for the most part you forgive this transgression.

Definitely worth picking this one up!

Very deep sound from Scandinavian producers. Each track is brilliant. It's a pity but track #9 on all cd's with clicks defects from 3:55min till 4:15
