"Twentythree" is a hidden gem, and is among the best ambient albums in the genre.

To be honest, this album doesn't grip me as much as their other albums. Maybe I just need to listen to it more. Having said that though, I've always been a fan of ambient music.

Really eagerly awaiting a reissue from Blood Music. Do Ultimae still own the rights to this or something?

Somewhere in Russia is a beautiful track.

Beatless space-ambient release, it is quite excellent and a welcomed departure from the usual duo style.

I absolutely love this album! It's different than other stuff they've put out there, but you can clearly feel the CBL vibe ! Ambient + CBL ... can it really get any better? I dont think so! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this album, probably my favorite of them all.

More stuff like this please! 5/5

When the CBL duo opened their secret acid stash back in 2009, they found out that some interlopers already got in there and cleared it, probably their well-meaning wives. So their music had to change and the next album reflected that event in its name and the acid-free and down-to-earth mood. In this album it looks like the pair of musicians switched to valium or morphine.

Frankly, I'm not sure how this album sounds like, I listen to it on minimal volume for recreational meditation. Together with the subsequent VLA it gives full two hours. So it is safe to say, that this album has a permanent place on my mp3 player.

The more I listen the more I love this album, even though after my first listen I got honestly a bit scared that I wouldn't like it as much as the previous albums.
Another proof that some of the best compositions do take time and effort in order to be appreciated at their true value!

"Somewhere in Russia" is the track that takes me the furthest away even though I remain firmly seated on my chair :D
