"Ron Geesin is probably best known for his collaboration with Pink Floyd on their 'Atom Heart Mother' lp and some of Roger Water's solo efforts.'Land Of Mist' is a well assembled compilation of some of Geesin's better works that were penned between 1971-88.Most of the tracks here were done in the '70's so you KNOW it has to be good.Tunes like "Spiky Diving Belles",the out-of-this-world "Head Rattle" and "Solar Flares" make me want to play this CD somewhat often.Many of the selections here would be tough indeed to locate on their original release.If you enjoy electronic instrumental music,this disc is for you."

"Ron is the prototypical English genius, totally outside the music establishment yet making a living in music (mainly through commercials and commissions). Like "Hystery" this is a collection of pieces, some old, some new, and a right proper introduction to one of the 20th Century's most original composers."

"I must admit that I do not have an appreciation for this collection of atmospheric pieces. I'm not sure that means that it is necessarily bad. I will say, however, that among my peers, that I am usually the music snob. Maybe this is a case of getting something different than what I expected. I bought the LP Patruns about 35 years ago. Patruns is odd in its own right, but there was definitely something in that work that kept bringing me back. I expected that I might get similar feelings from Land of Mist. NOT. Land of Mist seems barely more than prolonged sound effects. So here is the real question, was the $.025 I paid a representation of true worth of this CD or is it simply a case of throwing a pearl before swine?
I am not afraid to say I don't get it!"
