After reading that review that Toksafi on steveroach.com I did expect something totally different.
However I can still agree that this can be seen as an refinement of arc of passion in many ways.
The sound design is very impressive and refined (again) on this album, the content it self is still high quality ambient I still miss some kind of new element in the music, this album atleast in my current phase fails to transform myself into inner worlds...The main problem as I see it with this album is the short play time, it is not "focused" enough it has many drastic changes in shape & form. The first part of the album is more sequencer and electronic based ambient, the middle section is my favorite and is more "space atmospherics". If this album was a 2cd album as Arc of Passion I am sure it would have a more deep impact on me.
While I still can see the need for some more less deep music by steve roach I still always prefer his minimal side and infinite soundworlds, cause it has an more deep impact on my mind..and have the abillity to enter inner doorways beyond reality and time & space.
