How do you think these match up. Both are steady mood pieces without heavy dynamics. What do you think? The one with Japanese Kyoto at the beginning of not?

I had to think about this one a little bit more than the others, but my vote once again went to Spectral Mornings.  I love the atmosphere of Ravine but that is ultimately what it is - an atmospheric connection between two more important songs.  BTW, pieces such as this is what make The Lamb such a great album.  As a song by itself though, there is little to compare it to the melodicism of the Red Flower.  Om Mani Padme Hum - May the jewel in the lotus blossom.

I you said it very well. Ravine is critical to the Lamb, but it's not a stand alone piece.

"The Flower ...". It at least has some content. "Ravine" is so ... empty ... within or without The Lamb ...

I have to go for the grim, bleak Ravine...
