Review

Ah, yes! I thought. Because that’s what you wnat to listen to on the train to London: an hour long album of ambience. And then I fell asleep and had the best snooze on a train that I’ve had for a long time.

I woke with a jolt as though I was unconsciously aware that everyone was looking at me. I wasn’t dribbling, that was a good thing at least. Had I been snoring?

Ah well…

Resignation.

This is a beautifully paced piece of music that seems to ebb and flow like the tide. Perfect for lying down to in a darkened room.

The tracks wash into one another. A throbbing heart beat gives the songs life. Listening hard you can hear layer upon layer of sounds, blending together, playing off one another, giving the tracks depth and complexity.

Conclusion

This isn’t a metal album by any stretch of the imagination. But it is beautiful and I look forward to exploring this work further.
