4 stars A slow burning one track bright, mid-tone and dark soundscape which, as its title implies, dwells into the highly visited territory of dreams or sleep activity.

Add some field recordings of wild birds, which Mr. Roach rarely uses, and it all makes sense. From material reality to musical unreality in 73+- minutes. It achieves what it intends, music composition/performance wise it works out. So as you may suspect, this is no speed freak´s thrill.

Now as far as how many times I will consider Steve Roach´s Atmosphere For Dreaming (2018) a recurring choice could hardly be considered essential (he alone offers tons of alternatives), but like a good movie or book I will eventually give it a spin. Because if not essential as such beautiful it still is.

4 PA´s stars. For Prog. Electronic/Ambient followers as well as his own flock.
