Notes

Translations:
"Gryning" is the Swedish word for "dawn".
"Flytta Dig" is Swedish for "Get out of the way"

Track 20 is incorrectly written in the back cover as "Erractic Patterns".
Track 22.3 is a hidden track titled 'Mechanism' starting at 11:36. The total duration of track 22 is 19:44, the printed duration of track 22.1 is 10:40. Except for tracks 22.1 to 22.3 the durations here listed were taken from the Digipak.
Tracklisting starts at 12, as to follow up the previous tracks on Hydroponic Garden. If track 22.3 was given its own CD track it would had been numbered 23 as the followup album, Interloper, starts at track 24.

Released in Digipak.

Newcomers should be made aware that the 2006 Ultimae release and the 2016 Blood release of World Of Sleepers are significantly different.

Sounds nice, but can't help noticing it sounds a little outdated for 2006. It might as well have been made in 1996... But then again, better something that sounds a little outdated than most of that generic modern electronic crap of these days

"What about the forest?"
"Nope"

Interesting vocal samples in "Photosynthesis". Makes the track stand out from the rest of the album.

this album is solid and homogenous and that is great from the use of beautiful sounds, dreamy vocal and the utilization of the acid sound everything to create beautiful pieces of ambient tracks that God listen to you and you will feel floating in the middle of the space and later in a deep dream so this album sounds so check it out.

The coloured vinyls are very limited and look amazing but mixing with the splattered would give me a headache - not sure how many black vinyl copies are in worldwide circulation - Heard there are some colour problems with the coloured vinyl. If anyone owns both black and coloured I'd be interested to know the difference in audio if there is any - But from personal experience with playing hundreds of coloured vinyls as someone I remember used to say - always bet on black :)

Note .... all my three vinyl albums on Blood Music are poor vinyl quality pops surface noise and clicks. So please be aware before purchase am sending mine back

From the beginning to the end, the album is very solid and consistent. The meeting of dreamy soundscapes and the 303, plus excellent samples. All of this is contributing to create a very original and fascinating music.
I could imagine myself swimming with the jellyfishes, in the middle of the space, inside a dream.

Such a beautiful album, rich with deep atmospheres and textures. It's something you should experience for yourself because words only cheapen it. Enjoy the ride

one of the most important 303-laced interventions in the sound of what can defensibly be described as high-gloss progressive scandinavian psychill. carbon fibre acid lines ripple over fractal beats that, though splintered, wheel and unify again and again in a groovy sort of biomechanical oscillation that is as intensely melodic as it is angular. A memorable moment from Solaris
"Do you understand what I'm trying to tell you? There are no answers, only choices"
breaks up "Set Theory" in an interesting way, the stuttering precision of the subtle ropes of acid maintaining grid discipline as the sudden aphorism is whispered tensely into the percolating beat.

I deeply love this record; it marks a highwater mark for the sort of building hypnotic intensity of which all acid music is capable but few records actually execute. I probably haven't been terribly helpful; let it suffice that I've honestly enthused :) "Set Theory" to "Gryning" is the best cut off the record, shimmering with alien light in the sparse darkness of this "world of sleepers."
