4 stars Being a researcher myself, i cannot deny the magic of this record, 9 songs (TRAUMA is a bonus track if you had the chance buying the japanese import or... the digital download, whatever!) of pure ambient, but not just "only" ambient a perfect balance in between vocals, poetry, sounds and textures. All songs are soundscapes of distorted guitars or mellow strings with lots of layers of sounds, with vocals as focal point over the main "background" sound, also, the lenght of the sogs make stare and listen, not just another album but a conscise work of colors released little by ilttle avoiding the mass intercourse. A minimalistic effort that touches the sublime...again i cannot recommend one song in particular, beacuse each one has a strenght by itself... yes a quiet record, a long one, not easy as first listening, but a jewel waiting to be discovered. peace
