4 stars I had forgotten just how good this album is. It might be my favorite of all of the Jon Hassell album I own (seven to be precise). The music, like most of Hassell's work, consists of Hassell's electronically treated trumpet soloing over lush tribal rhythms. And despite the guitarist and two keyboardists that appear on the album, you would never know they were there, they blend into the bass and powerful tuned drums, playing hypnotic beats. In fact, the only other instruments besides the trumpet that pushes out of the rhythm tracks are the flutes in the final piece, Air.

But it's Hassell's playing that takes center stage. And while the style is similar to his previous albums, his playing seems somewhat more animated, while still retaining the trancelike nature.
