This release features calming electronics enhanced by the presence of flutes, violin, percussion, guitars and bass, producing an atmospheric auralscape tinged with a hint of rhythm and heart. After diffusely ambient preludes, the four songs on this 65 minute CD delve into more engaging melodies with the introduction of softy snappy drums. Enter a cosmic guitar and the snake-like curl of bass, injecting earthier riffs to the snickering electronic sequences. Frequently, wistful flute strains and astral violin appear, adding a ghostly edge to the mix. There is a striking passage toward the end of the second song, "Anarchronist", with pulsating E-perc and koto-like guitar. It's moments like this that infuse this music with satisfying effects upon the listener. The tuneage is quite gripping here, a brilliant fusion of rock instrumentation with a dense and busy electronic tapestry. Once they start going, the melodies are quite insistent and emotional, building to intense pinnacles before they relax back upon themselves for passive conclusions. Spacey and powerful, without being dronish or overt.
