4 stars It's not very fair to review the album as progressive rock because it just isn't progressive rock. It would be like classifying Snow Patrol's latest album as progressive rock simply because the last track is over 16min long.

As an album of new age/ambient music, it is among the best I've heard - right up there alongside Steve Roach's "Structures from Silence" and Fripp & Eno's "No Pussyfooting". Whereas some ambient pieces just hang there in perpetual nothingness, this album does at least have some movement and development.

It won't appeal to fan's of Hillage's trippy brand of space rock, nor will it appeal to the purest of prog- heads, but it's one of those albums you never know you'll like until you hear it. It shows a very different side to Hillage and, seeing as it's his first and only excursion into ambient music, it's executed very well.

Plus, if you have the transparent vinyl edition like I have, it also looks pretty :-)
