5 stars A fairly intriguing dark ambient experience. I'd say this album is much more interesting than anything else Bass Communion and Continuum ever did.

Though the album ain't that long (less than 40 minutes), it worths ten 80-min long minimaist ambient pieces. Throughout the album we can hear disturbing pianos and electric noise. Together they're creating excellent dark atmosphere.

When I was listening to the first part, I constantly thought of those old abandoned houses, photos of which you may find in the booklets from Opeth releases. Needling high-pitched pianos are really chilling here. This music is really spooky and dark, and at the same time it's excellently sad. It really might make you feel like you've just lost someone dear and beloved.

In the second part piano sounds like thunder or very big brass bells. It creates even more suspense that you may find in the first part. Anyway, listening to this I felt like a character from Hitchcock's "Vertigo"!

Those parts altogether, as I said before, are falling into one essential ambient experience. I said, essential. So I can't give it less than five stars. Excellent work.

ole-the-first | 5/5 |
