4 stars This is fragile & very nostalgic ambient New Age music. It consists in mellow, slow, very echoed piano notes and in some delicate & floating keyboards sounds giving an atmosphere of ethereal softness, like if you were floating on a cotton cloud. There are outstanding tracks, like "First light" and "Not yet remembered". On "First light", the piano notes are extremely sustained and echoed: it gives a serious feeling of nostalgia and regrets: the effect is really addictive. On "Not yet remembered", there are outstanding vocal arrangements that sound like human choirs; the piano notes are very pure, loud & sustained, so that the track is very intense; the voices and the hypnotic piano give an extreme feeling of nostalgia, loneliness and lead to recollection. The track "Arc of doves" is so delicate and mellow that it gives you the feeling that you gently hold in your hands a new born bird. The other tracks are less predominant, but still deserve a careful listen.
