CD Reviews

Great set, if you can get it to play
Robert Sherwood | 01/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A previous reviewer noted the issue with disc 2, and I thought I'd comment on it. The two discs of this set feature tracks numbered 1-20, with track 1-10 on disc 1, and 11-20 on disc 2. Literally, if you insert this disc into a drive that can handle it, you'll see that the first track on disc 2 is displayed as "11". This is compliant with the red book standard, but many CD players have trouble playing disc 2. Computer drives seem to be the worst offenders. This otherwise excellent compilation loses a point because of this excessive cleverness."

"This is very interesting and impressive music comprised of many different new age and space music talents! The texture, depth, and overall feeling in the music is outstanding! Well, on CD # 1 that is. The 2nd CD of this 2 CD set WILL NOT PLAY OR READ! I have bought *two* Swarm of Drones CD sets this year. The first one was used, so I figured the 2nd CD was just damaged somehow (even thought I can promise you it wasn't scratched or anything - I checked). Well, a few months later I bought a brand new Swarm of Drones. Guess what? 2nd CD does NOT work again! It just causes any CD player you stick it in to sit there and spin and spin and try to read it.Great music, however, 1 star because I got ripped off due to a production error at Sombient music (who made this). Anyone know anything about this little "problem"? Don't try to contact Sombient, they are out of business. And anyone else I've tried to contact about this doesn't seem to care."
Simply great compositions with unsurpassed complexity.

"This is a very intense cd set. The music composed and compiled in the set was made by some of the hard core new age artists i.e Robert Fripp, Steve Roach and some others that are equally good but not as well known. It is always new sound regardless of how many times you listen to it. It is mood music. Eventhough some of it sounds "dark", it inspires a sense of awe in listener. It will envelope itself around your being. It is music to listen to with the ears of your soul. It is like a story of the modern day living in a dark society. It has remained one of my favorite music no matter what else came my way. I Do recommend it. But, it not for everyone. You have to listen to this and absorb it thoroughly before you can get it's full effect.Great music for creative work. Meditate with the dark side but become enlightened!"
