The most pleasing thing for me with this release (particularly CD1) is the inclusion of tracks with real instruments, and also there is no 'air of predictability' with what you hear either. Fresh and interesting. Oh and James Holden - Balance 005 ...... See full review

I've got this on a UK Mercury release 9199 590 (inside the Archives triple vinyl issue) - just played it and yes that sound keeps on playing until you lift the needle! Wind chimes? Maybe. To my ears it is some sort of shrill mini-cymbal - possibly 2,... See full review

OK, so you'll probably buy this because of Sitting On Clouds. Well as good as that is (obviously!) ... the treasure on this release is Transpose. It's just so mesmeric! Wonderful stuff. What a talent Steve Rachmad is.

Yeah, great track, but for me the star of the show on this release is Backbone. Played through headphones it is awesome, and the swirling wind sound in the background adds an extra layer.
