Glurping magmaesque message from the underworld
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Well...what can you say...Hassell has gone Miles meets Dub and someone had to carry the "Fourth World Torch" for us pan-global junkies. Steve Roach has mutated from a Schultz/T.Dream inspired cheese-wiz synthesis in the 80's (which sounded cool then - but the filter sound dates it) to developing an earthy, sub-earth timbre in the 90's. Add that to Lights In A Fat City / Trance Mission devotees Kent & Newby - and you have one of the most Swampy meets red dust recordings you can find. It is similar in nature to Roach's Artifacts and Origins works, and even slightly to Newby's "Ecology Of Souls" CD. In other words, Didgeridoo, swamp/earth keys, found sounds, REAL percussion, some cool fake percussion sounds, and conceptually going in the right place melodically/harmonically. Gila monster music.Ian Naismith"

"I love this CD. It's one of the best ambient recordings ever. The first time I heard it was in the car. When Calyx Revelation started, I had to pull over and just listen. It is awesome. If you have never heard Steve Roach's music before, this is a good one to start with. This is what he is all about. Not to take away from Newby and Kent, who also rise to the occasion."
