In the Flesh?
4 stars This album is not easy to review. As a matter of fact, there's a question on if 'Neroli' should actually be listened to as a record, or used as a background 'thinking music' while you read, sleep, relax, meditate etc. An hour-long piece consists of single notes being played on a synthesizer giving an eerie, cosmic feel. It's not dynamic at all, it does not change the volume or the tempo for all of its 58 minutes. So it maybe monotonous and boring to some, but it's nice listening to it after any other music - it will calm your nerves no matter if you were just listening to Frank Zappa, Slayer, The Prodigy or Deep Purple.

I don't know about you, but it's late and I'm kinda sleepy. Think I'll give 'Neroli' a spin and head for Dreamland ASAP ...
