3 stars This record is more melodic, rhythmic and less linear than the previous ones. You have sequenced beat mostly all through the album, and the floating keyboards in the background are less pronounced. I would say that it is more accessible and probably he reached some new fans because of this album. It sounds quite European, being slightly comparable to "Tangerine Dream" of the early 80's. But he still has his unique style that made him a major artist in the New Age world. I still wonder why the presence of the last track, which mostly corresponds to a dullish danceable track for elder people in a social club.

Rating: 3.5 stars
