    Return to the Ocean is the most beautiful piece I've heard in 2022.

      This work is an experience, from skull scrapping cacophony to the rapturous out of body spaces the sound is fantastic all the way though. The mastering and pressing delivers a full spectrum of highly detailed audio, there’s also extraordinary separation, depth and lovely panning with in the mix. I did hear non fill in a couple spots, but it wasn’t bad enough to reject my copy (The vinyl is pretty quiet so non fill is bound to noticed when present). I enjoyed the lovely booklet and the description of the work and the construction of wonderful electro acoustic instruments. The music is fantastic and really was a treat to experience on vinyl.
