I like this a lot, upon my first listen today. This is not weird, harsh, too experimental, or anything else I had feared, but quite melodic, warm, peaceful, and quite beautiful throughout, and one of the more truly ambient releases from Storey in quite some time. So those who didn't like Rhiz, My Life as a Ghost, or other "beat heavy" discs, "Dead" should be more to your liking, and definitely harkens back to the classic early releases like Fallen Gods, Vernal Crossing, Kirghiz Light, etc. Beautiful vocals, almost DCD/Cocteau Twins-ish in spots. 70 minutes! On a side note, don't know how RS does it, but every disc I've ordered from him has arrived (from UK to San Francisco) in about 3 days. Nice!
