"Well first than nothing let me say this to the guy who wrote in french and gives one star to this CD :first write in english even when it is not your first language (like me) you should buy a new pair of ears , because this CD is a solid master piece.
A friend recomended me this CD because C. ARMSTRONG was in the Massive Atack?s Protection, and i said thank like a hundred times for recomended me this CD , this work is one of those that have a universal feeling (except if you are this guy who wrote in french) i do not know anyone who have not enjoyed this CD!!! .
The feeling in this CD is already well said for the rest of the reviewers, but i am going to say this: It is a down tempo music full of strings , piano and ocassional beautiful voices (PAUL BUCHANAN from The Blue Nile and LIZ FRAISER from Cocteau Twins) with deep melancholic feeling this music will take you far far away to places where the hope lives at the end."
Possibly the finest of its kind I've heard...

"This CD is an intensely packed popourri of urban atmosphere, weather/seasons/time as well as feelings of love, sadness and anxiety, loneliness and belongingness juxtaposed. At times dramatic but not overweeningly so, the album is finely produced and the musical transitions flow very well together without relying too much on mechanic, or non-organic if you will, elements. It has silence.
The songs inspire creativity and contemplative modes and the cherries of the cake are for me the almost movingly soulful "Let's Go Out Tonight" that reminds one of dawn, or city after the rain, or two strangers or lovers meeting, and "This Love" that captures the feeling of ascendancy and determination, even sacrifice but also frustration experienced in love. Early Tangerine Dream meets Delirium and Enigma with an orchestra plus some other "humane" elements. Great stuff, much recommended."

"Very NICE music. I like calm and gentle music for work because I work in a place that is dangerous. I must have what few "wits" remain with me there or I could get hurt. So, I listen mostly to instrumental classical.
I did catch "Laura's Theme" which is the theme from the US soap opera "General Hospital." I haven't watched it in about 30 years, but that was the theme written for a main character way back then. I don't even know if it is still on the air...I don't watch television or even have one plugged in. This is new music for me, and I will explore it a bit more. I like this kind of music."
