Steve Roach's first major foothold as one of the key figures in American new-age / ambient music was Steve Roach - Structures From Silence followed by this series of 3 cassettes, all which saw him take the pointers hinted by Brian Eno in a new direction, and different to his contemporaries Robert Rich and Michael Stearns a careful balance of light and dark with the accent on subtly haunting melody, rich but understated. These releases are still pretty much as new/innovative as when they were created, and a must for those that like their ambient a little bit more melodic but not too much so.
