Got this yesterday and really like it. This has a less "electronic" structured feel than Seven Veils or Propagation, and more improvisational/"live" sounding as well. Well balanced elements throughout and nothing dominates the mix. Some really excellent female vocals on a couple tracks. The press release mentioning Bark Psychosis was spot on--the defragmented rhythms, hushed jazzy drums, droning guitars, dubby bass--reminded me of the BP release "Hex." Great production by RR as well (as usual). Organic n'earthy world ambient w/elements of jazz and post-rock experimentalism. If you don't like World music this may not be your cup of tea (it's not Trances/Drones or Stalker for sure), but I wouldn't say it's a prerequisite to enjoy it--still psychoactive mind music at its core.
