2 stars Tibbets' third album I believe and the second for ECM, this album is really a quiet affair where it appears that that the music will be all in the ambiances and sometimes very close to New age music, like Deuter had done before him. Steve Tibbetts plays everything on this album but the percussions, which are handled by his long-time collab Marc Anderson.

Although I suppose that at the time Tibbetts' music served a purpose and was maybe groundbreaking (I only became aware of him in the early 90's), I can assure you that this album is nothing worth writing about than I will here. Ambient, new-agey, repetitive, almost boring.

Not really recommended if you like dynamic and changing music.
