1 stars These "musical" moments should have remained what they were made for: some opening tracks for TD concerts at the time.

To have grouped these "numbers" and put them onto a CD was quite adventurous, and useless should I say. This great band doesn't gain anything with such a weak release. What was their real meaning with this stuff? Who the hell knows!!!

This (short) album is a prolonged continuation of the poor and the worse ("Symphony In A ? Minor"). If you would fancy some "jungle dance", this album is maybe appropriate for your ears ("Calyx Calamander"), but I have to say that mine are quite alien to these sounds. Quite hard to believe, really!

I do love TD an awful lot, but this time, a certain limit has been set, even if some decent work is being presented ("The Seventh Propeller Of Silence"). This is their first work I rate with one star (and I've been reviewing over thirty of their works).

This is just NOT working with me. Quite difficult to bear to be honest. What went through the minds of the Froese gang? I don't know. But you'd better never listen to this.

One star is the only rating possible (even if another reviewer did rate it as a masterpiece). I wish this release never saw the light.

I can only hope that TD will never release an "Ambient Crocodiles" or "Ambient Elephants". Extremely weak album this is. The only acceptable track is "Campera De Mon Glyan". Almost five minutes of sunshine in this darkness.
