I paid $55 for this album. There was little to no information, only that it was limited to 100 copies--pressed CD, in hardbound book-style digipak. Great packaging, I have to admit. The sound samples on the website were excellent. Only problem is (which I was not aware of), 54 minutes of this 60 minute CD is one repeating loop, which sounds like a cue ball breaking in a game of pool. (They should've called it "Pool Room"?) There's even a round ball on the cover artwork that coulud be a cue ball. Is this a hint??? Well OK, actually in the loop there is a cool low-drone and cicadas sounds, so it isn't just the cueball. The 6 minutes of actual music is EXCELLENT! Some great steel cello stuff like on the "Wouivre" CD, and some KW keyboard drones. But these tracks are like only two minutes apiece. Then they fade out and it's back to somebody playing pool for 30 minutes. I think the cueball stuff would've been cool as a 10-min. opener and/or closer, but 54 minutes of it is a bit much. Can you medidate to this album? I don't know, I'll have to try it out.

Steve Roach - Early Man CD
If you know Ishq you may be used to listening to his music with some kind of beat included or some rhythmic element. His latest album called "Skyspaces" is totally droney. And on top of that very etheric in the vein of Steve Roach's First Light. Recommended from headonist!
