4 stars AP's peak in the 90's was reached by this album, which is close to a masterpiece. This album sounds unlike anything else AP has created until now. It feels like a mixture of soundtrack, Mike Oldfield music and JM Jarre with a difference of using real instruments on top of synthesizers.

Two greatest points are deserved for the ability to compose an original music and provide mature contemporary arrangements. It is incredible, how rich can music from once a pure acoustic player get.

Looking at the timings of the two movements, this looks promising and there are no dull moments despite > 24 minutes of time for each composition.

Both compositions are symphonic and electronic in their nature and there are no upbeat moments that would interfere with the reflective mood.

This album is highly recommended due to its high level of cleverness and creativity.
