5 stars I said it before, they lead music revolutions before their time. Does "Ambient Techno" sound familiar? This is an excellent prog album. You can't even sum up how sublime this album is in words only listening will tell of it's magnificence. I own well over 1500+ CDs and somehow this CD makes it off my many shelves and into my CD player often. Probably because it is mind-blowingly awesome.

Phaedra, the first track is haunting and at the same time incredibly beautiful and exciting. The second track, Mysterious Semblance At The Strand Of Nightmares, is a wonderful piece as well capturing the haunting overtones in the first track with some very compelling and well constructed synth effects. The beginning sounds allmost like homunculi, whispering to their evil masters in the dark forest taunting your dreams. This leads up to the very gorgeous third track Movements of a visionary where you have 2 synths in syncopation with each other to create an almost inhuman rhythm that takes your mind to other places. The final track is quite short and is a somber repose to the album, haunting and dreamy.

This is another excellent album by TD and it not only defines their next approach to their sound in this era, I belive it redefines electronic music altogether.
