3 stars I'm grateful that Jon Hassell was added to this site. I've been a fan of his since his Eno collaborations.

This album is very much in the same style of the Fourth World series, with Hassell's computer treated trumpet playing over synth loops and Abdou Mboup's tuned drums. The whole album is at once eerie, disturbing, and strangely soothing. The treated sound on the trumpet is mostly a lush harmonized sound, that gives it a moaning quality, like a distant train. Much of the tape loops are sampled sounds from an old Hollywood orchestration.

Hassell's albums are a favorite of mine to play in the car, when driving late at night. Cool stuff.
