This begs for a reissue. It is awesome. Please. Someone have pity on those of us who want to own a physical copy of this gem.

This was one of the first and only records that I was ever introduced to by either Evan Marc (Bluetech) or Steve Hillage. I was very lucky to have discovered the album right when it was available.

It would be expected, that a rarity like this gained a much higher rating than the music would merit. At the time I didn't even think about it much... However, this truly is one album, that actually is as good, (if not better) than the reviews would suggest.

A minimalist, moody album - something that's not normally "my cup of tea" - I never disliked it even from the first listen. But as I've returned, this one seems to get better with each listen. It's even a bit haunting, when every listen is enjoyable (and different), but you don't think about it much and forget about it for some time... still it just comes back, and each time you welcome it with open arms.

So, if you're expecting catchy melodies that hook you from the start, you'll likely be disappointed. But if you like the mood it creates at first - preferably on some calm occasions - you will surely embrace the whole album. It's filled with detail, that on the second listen you'll wonder why you didn't notice the first time around... and on the third one... Well, you get the point.

I can't say that it's one of the greatest albums ever created... but now listening to it again, I really would like to. Personal preferences aside, it is definitely a set of some awesome music. This one will stay with me.

5/5

Absolutely amazing album by Evan Marc! Definately his best work to date, and that says a lot, since he's kind of dominated the slower sides of the psychedelic scene the last couple of years. "But this is techno", some would reply. Yes, I admit, it has the classical simple and monotone dub-techno beats, and some typical rhythmic techno-pads, but above that you have some of the trippiest ambient soundscapes you will ever come across.
I remember coming home from a really bad techno party in Stockholm half a year ago. The vibe at the party wasn't good at all so I left at maybe 1am. So I was just starting to get quite far out when I got home to my appartment, and I was still in a "techno-mode". So I started meditating with this album on the stereo. It was, simply put, some magical 80 minutes. The music grabbed me, took me to some beautiful imaginary landscapes that I've never been to before. The soft, steady beats and all the intelligent, super complex pads and effects - it's just perfection!

I am deeply thankful for what Evan Marc is doing, both as a producer and as a label manager. He's a true inspiration, and his pioneering labels Somnia and Native State are both must-follows for me nowadays. So hats off for one of the most important musical profiles in the psychedelic community at the moment! I'm very excited to see what this sound magician has to offer in the future...
