4 stars Unlike other reviewers, I do not find this very similar to Tangerine Dream. It is remote yet warm. Occasionally does a hypnotic series of underlying notes come into play. There is a refreshing simplicity to be found.

'Epsilon in Malaysian Pale' Layers of Mellotron do not saturate the first half; instead, they lift the piece into the airier places of the musical spectrum. The key is tranquility, a pacifying reminder of the ephemeral, of breath.

'Maroubra Bay' More inharmonious, contrasts of the available palette clash and dart forward with a balefulness unheard previously. Brass appears mournfully yet triumphantly, as though announcing a pyrrhic victory of some kind. A descending rhythm is the spine for further Mellotron and washes of atmospheric sound. Unfortunately some the momentum gets deflated quickly, as though the artist had run out of ideas. The unsuspecting finale is one of grace and quiet dignity.

Epignosis | 4/5 |
