That's what you can imagine when listening this music and that's exactly the word that was on my mind when I first heard this. From lengthened guitar solos, little bit electronic (remember Cher?) altered voices to sometimes long, sometimes short tracks, but in all times sounding long.

There's no rush on this record, there's even no Rush anyway. There is just calm pace and intention to go forward, continue forth, but very slowly, enjoying the view ("mountains, dew, ocean, echoes..."). Because in todays rushed society, why should we hurry ? It's unhealthy, it's important most of the times, but we then need to calm down every now and then, for example with this record. I've never been fan of meditating music, but to rest with "Falling Through Rainbows", that's good choice.

It's like this ocean pattern you can receive from psychologists, of course, except few parts (like one section of Rose Coloured Halls). There should be warning not to listen this album when you are sleepy, otherwise there's strong chance you will fall asleep. Not because this music is boring, but because it's very harmonic and everything sounds natural.

The only problem may be that it all sounds quite same, there are varieties, but not so distinct, there's unifying theme of dream, magical landscape. Some albums are like that, but not many of them.

4(+) positive dream by Rick.
