    I find this release rather uninspiring. Yes, there is a market for this, the record is well attuned to a romantic view of far, mysterious exotic culture and combines this with a pleasant and well crafted electronic soundscape. Euro-american middle-aged electronic music fans with an Asia-fetish will love it. A friend who was listening together with me pointed out, it would be a nice soundtrack to a National Geographic documentary about baby animals. Nothing more, nothing less.

      Passed this one up a few times, but always had that lingering thought in the back of my mind and eventually I just relented. I'm glad I gave it another go. To be fair, the music is quite special and will possibly become a future classic from this era of ethnographic sounds. This record and (Meitei's more recent work) have something a lot of music has lost - real character, soul.

          Delicate ambient that embodies the Japenese Wabi Sabi philosophy through music. Favourite track: Nami.
