"Overall, this creation is haunting, almost unsettling, probing hidden
mysteries of the soul. Many cuts are very long, and very hypnotic, with an
organic shimmering sound like random molecular movement. Its otherworldly
ambiance brings to mind the devic kingdom. Great for deep journeying."
Heartsong Review, 11/92|
"Each piece is polished and deep, an evocative marvel inspiring an alert
state, sometimes a let's-go-bye-bye state in others.... This heartfelt and
intelligent creation is a worthy successor to Harold Budd/Brian Eno's
Plateaux of Mirror."
NAPRA Journal, 11/92
"Absolutely entracing and mood-seducing, this is active ambient music, and,
although electronically derived and motivated, results in an abundancy of
lush, warm sounds that invite, beckon and entice. Keyboardist Ruben Garcia
assists on the title track and the achingly beautiful "Clear Pools," where
the dark hues of A Produce's electronics mesh seamlessly with Garcia's
striking digital chords. Captivating."
"This fascinating CD combines the best of Eno, Budd, Hassell, Roach, Rich,
and Borden. The result is a meditative trance journey the like of which I
haven't heard since Michael Stearns' Planetary Unfolding.... an utterly
subline tour of outer and inner space..... This CD covers a lot of ground and
will cross many listening genre boundaries, as is evidenced by its reviews in
all the other alternative music publications."
"Eno/Hassell fourth-world ambiance and Harold Budd styled keyboard
atmospherics..... The most distinctive tracks are the last three, all of
which have a strong invented ethnic flavor..... Other tracks are nicely (and
even beautifully) done, but have a more generic meditative quality which
hovers somewhere between background and foreground."
"Well away from the melodic-based Eno ambient explorations, this is much
moodier and strange music where often the sounds are unidentifable and the
mood elusive. A kind of uneasy ambient music, I suppose, that reveals itself
more with each listen."
Audion (England), 6/93
