Hello, yesterday I was surprised to find in a local record store a new Rudy Adrian disc, "Desert Realms," on Lotuspike. After the first few listens, I am somewhat underwhelmed. Similar to Moonwater I guess, ambient floating stuff with flute on some tracks, no sequencers. Big problem I have is it doesn't make me think of desert landscapes! A lot of the sounds seem borrowed from "The Healing Lake." Good album but if you have his previous albums like Twilight, Healing Lake, Moonwater, etc., may be somewhat redundant. At the same time also picked up the Lotuspike disc by Craig Padilla/Zero Ohms, "Path of Least Resistance," which I was hesitant about a couple years ago due to reading it had woodwind instruments on it but they are very subtle, and this has some first-rate cosmic sequencer music and a big Tangerine Dream-inspired sound.
