4 stars A sonic journey to outer space from the depths of the sea- that is the best imagery I can conjure with respect to Ashra's New Age of Earth. While it begins energetically and fluidly, it gradually lets the listener go, as the approach becomes more and more minimal.

"Sunrain" Tranquil electric piano hammers out a soft base for the lengthy Mellotron-like phrases uttered over it. Like a flower, the piece blooms into something brighter and ethereally layered.

"Ocean of Tenderness" The album dives into deeper tranquility, with washes of peaceful sound.

"Deep Distance" The continued serenity, with the high whistling tones, brings Yes' "Soon" to mind. Soon it takes on a lighter countenance of its own.

"Nightdust" It's as though the listener has finally emerged from the aquatic depths and is being lifted toward the stars. Distant tones weave a slow, nocturnal movement, as though gradually inviting the listener to a sleepy oblivion.

Epignosis | 4/5 |
