"This double CD by Sad World is an interesting excursion into ambient music, but it is rough around the edges. The first CD is enough in itself (at 79 minutes) and is quite good. The opening and closing tracks are superb and my favorite is the 31 minute Glyan which starts with recorded voices echoing from the media (radio or TV?) and segues into long washes of sounds. The 2nd CD is somewhat forgettable with two songs of 40 and 20 minutes in length. The roughness I mentioned appears in some of the tunes in the form of sounds that should have been edited out. On the third song, there's too much background noise and on the fourth song, an unrelenting high-pitched tone is heard throughout--is it feedback? The fourth tune has the nicest melody. I always picture ghosts dancing about. I bought this way back in 1996 on a whim and I do listen to it occasionally, but only 3 of the 7 songs are worth listening to in my opinion."
