Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars This is instrumental fusion of the lighter variety. Well played, well performed, and with a general feeling of cleverness. The latter much more so than technical.

The atmospheres and moods are generally positive and uplifting, and the musical expression is mellow and at times dreamy, with soundscapes that give each instrument here plenty of space to be heard and appreciated even if they don't have leading tasks in the individual compositions.

It is pleasant music, but there's nothing here that grabs you by the balls or captivates the mind to send you daydreaming. Pleasant is the over all best descriptive word for this production.

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
