what! no review on this release!! Well i have to be honest when i first discovered these two artist i would say i wasn't particularly exactly over excited with their individual work, but when i eventually discovered this release and played for the first time .. i was absolutely bowled over!! this is undoubtedly Ambient at its best, listen and listen to it consciously your mind will transform to a unforgettable moment, 'by the river, laying down and staring at the sky watching clouds sculpturing"
