Look up beautiful in the dictionary; Harold Budd's "Avalon Sutra" will be the definition. There is no other word which so aptly describes it - the music is delicate, calming and transporting. Especially "Little Heart", which just took my breath away.

I don't really see the point of the second disc - It's nothing that we hadn't got on the first, but just extended to 70 minutes running time. I am not joking when i say that "As Long As I Hold My Breath" is so repetitive that it would be more suitable if it were 4 minutes long.
The first disc more than makes up for the failure (in my eyes) that is disc 2.
