3 stars Third release with missing pieces has multiple layers to offer from meditative/ambient music in the first tracks to guitar- based more conventional pieces.

"Turtle Race" has unusual to its name, fast percussions and quiet synth textures. Some of the tracks have a world-music ,vibe to it: South American "Underway Forest" and "Indio Wedding" and "River Chase", Latin "Fiesta del Charangos", African "African dream", "Bedouin Train",, "Okavanga" and "Sandstorm", Asian "Kalahari", "Songoku", "Schuan Journey", "Slow Boat to China". During the 29 songs on the album, none of this features guitar! It sounds like a soundtrack to documentary film about cultures or exotic animals.

However, the tracks are not too world music oriented so they are easily digestible and at the same time, forgettable.

3 stars but only because of bringing something original into AP's collection, otherwise 2.5 stars.
