5 stars At almost 15 yrs old, this CD is beginning to show signs of age. Since most of the music is synth driven, the present-day listener will be able to detect some "retro" sounds coming from ANT's stack of keyboards as technology has improved so much since 1991. That said, the music itself continues to envelop the listener like a compassionate embrace. This is a big budget album by AP standards. He brought in several other muscians to provide the strings, brass, and woodwind (and harp) as well as legendary producer SIMON HEYWORTH of Tubular Bells fame. The result is awe-inspiring. This is one of my "desert island discs", I cannot part with this album - ever. While the music itself is not complicated, it is layered and intricate. Don't expect to be blown away by this, but rather, expect to be swept away by its beauty. A magnificent record!
