Music connoisseur. Always looking for the next best jam to sneak into a playlist. I love the forgotten and the underground. Bringing new sounds to the surface is the easy part, exposing those sounds to others is another story.

All art includes no borders. That's really what makes it art.

One hour and forty-five minutes of classic uplifting downtempo bliss. Ahhh, with refreshment.
We know relaxation is in mind, simply based on the cover artwork. This record should be the first or the last album played in desire for the day.

James is a voice unmatched by its peers and predecessors. And while original music can be found in many realms, it doesn't always capture the raw passion and vivid appeal that James stakes claim. They write their songs, unbeknownst, in the universal... See full review

Nothing can compare to the sound of an original vinyl recording. This is a perfect notion to the tired lo-fi cymbal crashing of yesterday's indie rock outfits.

It's fascinating to think that music like this is produced in the modern day. Circa 2011, we transcend to ancient times when this record hits the turntable. An awakening of the soul - fully indoctrinated with deep and soothing vibrations amid choral... See full review

And the cassette version of this album is equally enjoyable.
Cheers!

Yes. I have the TWO side A labels as mentioned on your copy. It's difficult to decipher each side. I will not write on them. Totally true. Track listing plays correctly, I can only follow the etchings.

No problems here. The sealed version I opened and played is great. I even managed to forge a decent conversion to mp3 with my Numark TTi. Very minor surface noise on this LP.

Where has all the good ambient music gone? Talented acts like Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, etc have found better avenues to express their glory. It seems like Brad Rose and his illicit band of protégés are the ones who stand alone.

Who has beef with this album? Tobin fans need to chill out about this release. This is exquisite work, regardless of who created it, obviously a master of their craft – in both design and execution – so what’s the problem? I don’t see any.
