jr There's something special about the tone of this album. It seems to go on forever.

Olof There is such a gentle vibe to this whole album. Works both for background and active listening since the instrumentation is gorgeously layered. One of my all time favorite ambient albums. Favorite track: Athanasy, 1993.

Mark Tripney I bought this a few weeks ago, and I’ve listened to little else since. ‘Never, just as you wanted’ stops me dead in my tracks, but the whole record is superb. Favorite track: Never, just as you wanted.
クロッカス thumbnail
クロッカス Mesmerizing, uplifting, dream-induction ambient. Favorite track: Never, just as you wanted.

ryan Within ten seconds of listening you should already know I've put this on and gone for a long slow tobacco stroll in the cold season. Favorite track: Compound, echo.
