How this still remains overlooked is astonishing. A beautiful deep and lush cosmic journey drawing across drum and bass and deep Detroit vibes. Highly recommended and up there with the best work of Dennis and Marc.

4 Hero at their best. Atrue R&S classic! In my top 3 D&B albums next to Timeless and Modus Operandi

Tremendous album that really took drum and bass to Detroit. It's warm sounds could be compared to Model 500's Deep Space album.

This is a continuation of their Parallel Universe work (which is the one of the best Jungle/D&B albums of all time)

Nice instrumental tracks to chill to, but they continue to emphasize the heavy bass in the backdrop.
