Absolute masterpiece. Five stars. Hard to believe it’s 40 years old. Listening to it now to ring in the new year while my neighbors shoot off fireworks.

I first heard this record maybe a couple of years after it came out. Hassell would be one of my desert island artists. His sound is like no other, like the Fohn wind or spirits keening, drifting in the night sky. The comment about annoying trumpet made me laugh! It takes all sorts :-)

Sounds like the soundtrack to a Super Nintendo jungle platformer/fantasy RPG.

Very good reissue. My feeling always was, that this music doesn't need a trumpet. Would like to hear a remix without it. Wonderful percussion -and synthwork buried under annoying trumpet. Exeption: Delta Rain Dream

Very clean pressing & appears to be 180 grams. Still an awesome recording after all these years.

Still one of the best ambient album of all times.
Only a few crackles on side 2. Fine pressing, excellent sound quality and very smooth remaster. Well done.

World music term has been applied in so many contexts that it has no meaning. This record is speaks on lots of levels. It is a fabric of multiple patterns and textures. It is warm, haunting, and searching at the same time. Electronically processes instruments still have human feeling associated with them. Eno's ambient stuff can be more for a particular moment than something that can be played regularly. If you let this music into your world you will not regret it.

One of the finest ambient albums, not only from the early days, but generally speaking. Hassell's otherworldly trumpet sounds like a spirit flying over an ancient landscape. Deep, organic ambient that I played on repeat while studying.
