      sublime...listening to this album evokes a powerful feeling of time dilation. The vinyl cut is excellent as well, each side is long enough to give you something to ponder while you flip.

              Incredible music for anytime of the day, to get lost in it, can't be recommended enough. The artwork is beautiful (as with all Astral Industries releases so far), and great sounding vinyl too.

                I've noticed this release thanks to the artwork which is fantastic by the way. You see straight ahead that it is Astral Industries. I've read the story behind this recording and got really exited about hearing the clips online.
                So i've listened to the clips a few times, i was about to place an online order with several records and wasn't really sure about adding this to the cart. I couldn't feel the music. Then i thought, well it still sounds interesting and i really like the artwork, let's go for it.
                What a great surprise i had when i played it at home, the clips you hear online are not even a bad reflexion of this gem. Organic, deep and psychedelic at the same time, "Mahat" for example will take you on a 20 minutes trip, way beyond what i was expected.
                I agree with Adam and his comment below, except that i would swap the word ghostly for spiritual.
                Hat's off to the musicians and to Astral Industries for this reissue.

                  Extremely peaceful and ghostly music. The album flows in a psychedelic curve, bending the listeners normal perception of mundane time.
                  Chill, warm and comforting, this album is a gift.
