5 stars For sure ,this is the most peaceful RYPDAL album,even if his guitar keeps on gently weeps.It's probably my favourite one with WAVES and DESCENDRE even i admit not knowing his later releases.The question could be are we here in prog or jazz landscapes?but who realy cares?i don't, i just savour this wonderful and inspired music .TERJE left his band and plays here every thing, guitars, keyboards, flute, and sax. the only guest is INGER LISE RYPDAL, his wife who provides ethereal vocals as she did for the first eponym album. The music is at the same time imaginative, descriptive and introspective,she takes you away elswhere,to that special place you are when you're just between awakening and sleep,right there, just between the outside and the inside of the mind. Look at the cover, we are between sand and sky between day and night.If you love WEBER,TOWNER,and METHENY this record will be a new weird and friendly place to go.Repaint your soul with that strong elixir made of flute, sax, keys, voice and accoustic and flaming electric guitars. 5 stars no less
