4 stars In hindsight, a mixed bag of crunching nuggets and maybe too much sauce. Some real potential classics like "Holographic Caves" stand the test of time. I know this because of new interest due to itunes. That song is timeless, and almost makes sense. It is a litlle-know fact that Rebecca Guay, a DC Comics illustrator of "Black Orchid" and "Magic, The Gathering" fame created the cover before she graduated from Pratt.

Arcmet always needed a bass player, and it was a crime against humanity that one was never agreed upon.

When there is insight and vision, there is something magical to share with the world-and most of this recording is magic. Admittedly, it could have used more editing at times. Ultimately, I am pleased that younger listeners are reporting to me that they enjoy some of these tracks for reasons that have little to do with the normal tendencies of spacerock fans. They simply tell me that the music in "interesting" and "visionary" and that's good enough for me. Blessed be.

A corner in a forest is where I live right now far from the lights of Boston far from the madding crowd the flowers are all naked- and crooked stonewalls crumble after I climb over them to hear the cold stream rumble
