CD Reviews

THE HIDDEN RIFT is a superb ambient/space music album.
Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire | Minneapolis, MN United States | 06/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On THE HIDDEN RIFT, guitarist extraordinaire Jeff Pearce has produced music of sublime beauty, peace and introspection. Using just guitars and studio wizardry, Pearce brings forth slow patient washes of melodic warmth, drifting spacy ambience, and wave after wave of audio bliss. While two songs do sound like a guitar produced the music, the majority of this sounds like synthesizer (but it isn't!). The music is never ostentatious or melodramatic. Instead, it is minimal and suffused with a fragile beauty in the same way that Tim Story's keyboards are. It is ideal music for relaxing late at night, especially in the dark. Haunting, sublime, and exquisitely recorded, it is a must-have for lovers of either space or ambient music."
Superlative guitar atmospherics
Darryl | Houston, Texas | 03/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll have to second the review below. This is a superb album of chiming guitar atmospherics, with the spectral radiance of light through stained glass. Though it may be an obscure reference, this album brings me to much the same place as the Cocteau Twin's "Victorialand" album."
Wonderfully smooth and relaxing
William Sullivan | New York, NY USA | 04/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yet it's better than that -- this music can serve as either background vibes when that's what you want, or interesting and subtle music to listen to carefully. Pearce is one of the best at his genre, whatever that genre is."
