5 stars None of music lover or prog fans should not to know about TERJE RYPDAL ,although, looking at PA rewiews, it seems he's not that wellknown, what a pity because this incredible musician is a great guitar player ( kind of JEFF BECK ) and a talented and innovative composer.trying to discribe where one travels through this quiet and adventurous album means quoting MILES DAVIS because of PALLE MIKKELBORG ethereal trumpet, and PINK FLOYD because of melancholic and atmospheric keyboards .TERJE RYPDAL plaintive guitar takes off over those misty sounscapes and just speaks to the listener , it's deeply touching.There're many drums patterns, sometimes a bit free borderline but it takes only two or three listenings to realise it just does the right thing.This music is strongly evocative and will take you far away to imaginary shores, this is the best possible recording for daydream, meditation or sinking in sleep.Listening to that, we're somewhere between DAVIS , kind of blue, FLOYD echoes and ,i don't know maybee SCHULZE timewind.It's kind of mystical journey inside your subconscious, wonderful 5 stars
