4 stars This was really my first proper introduction into the works of Steve Roach. I had him on a tribute album to Salvador Dali called Dali - The Endless Enigma, which incidentally also had Djam Karet, who I didn't really get into for a few years after either.

This album is, needless to say, dark space music. Imagine yourself in the darkest regions between the stars drifting aimlessly. He basically creates this atmosphere that lasts for a little over 73 minutes. If you wanted something dark and creepy to play during Halloween to creep out the trick or treaters, you couldn't get better than this.

Music best not to listen to if you are feeling depressed unless you want to deepen the experience.

3.5 stars which round up to 4 unless you have a problem with how math works particularly when floating in the darkness of space. Be sure and follow this up with something brighter like Spectral Mornings...
