"I'm amazed not only that until mine there were no reviews, but that the used price of this CD at the time of this writing is virtually free ($0.14). I think this is an excellent disc-- and would compare it favorably with Mychael Danna's soundtrack for Exotica, or Eno and Hassel's Fourth World Volume 1. Dreamy, exotic, and apparently, completely overlooked. Ignore the fact that Arto Lindsay and Laurie Anderson are credited on a couple of tracks, none of their neuroses are anywhere apparent on this particular CD. Each track has assorted personnel, so this appears to be a collection of tracks recorded at different times, despite an apparent coherence of moods. Other artists credited are: Sussan Deihim, Fernando Saunders, Christian Lechevretel, Zeena Parkins, Nana Vasconcelos, Amedeo Pace, Sebastian Steinberg, Dougine Bowne, Frank Genius, Cyro Baptista, Melvin Gibbs, Josh Selman, Jun Miyake. A couple of pieces were apparently commissioned for a choreographic work. That's as much as I know about it, except it's a very listenable CD..."
Fascinating and unexpected

"I read the review of this CD when it was first released and was drawn by it because the reviewer compared it to Brian Eno and Sonic Youth. I don't know the music of the latter, despite my living in thier hometown of Northampton, MA, but I'd been a big Eno head for deacades. I also had no idea of Scherer's band Ambitious Lovers. Anyway, the music on this disc is really wonderful, it reminds me of Jeff Grienke meets Penguin Orchestra meets Brian Eno's "Nerve Net". The instrumentation is very interesting and the overall texture of the sound is mysterious, pulsing, industrial but not harsh or dissonant. I highly recommend it."
