3 stars Multi-instrumentalist and composer Bruce White is the man behind this project. He cares for the guitar, bass and synthesizer duties but nevertheless has invited a lot of musicians to implement his ideas. The result is a rather attractive album quasi crossing the space rock and nujazz barrier with a special focus on electronics. Jazzy groovy - with swirling synths on the contrary - the first two songs Praxis and Our Paths Are Sonic Waves are made up in a spacey fusion vein I would say - hmmh - has there ever been mentioned such kind of combination? I don't know. Or should it be described as space house?

Intended or not - this sounds close to the Ozric Tentacles territory although the guitar contributions are offered restrained here. The same for the rocking The Source and Mystery Falls where other songs like Gravity are made up in a more trancy mood. Soft and Sharp for example sounds quite experimentally tinged caused by ambient and weird synth elements. The title track finally comes back to the jazzy fusionesque orientation with a grooving rhythm backbone once more - a diversified melodic tune spiked with some spooky cosmic synths.

Not a typical genre example but a quite impressing excursion to the borders of psych/space prog - garnished with some other slight genre influences. Well done - compelling, soft, mellow compositions - with every round you'll detect some new impressions! Releated bands: Colorstar, Sonar.
