A Masterpiece album; GET IT
Speedy | 06/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was a big fan of Surman's playing on John McLaughlin's 1969 masterpiece "Extrapolation," & when I saw this one in a used record store I immediately picked it up. It has two of the greatest, most atmospheric, synthesizer-backed, trippy saxophone solo tunes ever recorded by man, woman or mutant: "Constellation" & "Edges of Illusion." The rest of the album is also excellent but those two songs are must-haves for any jazz-saxophone or for that matter for any ambient-music fan too."
Great Surman Album

"This is one , if not his best, of all his ECM recordings. Similar to 'The adventures of Simon Simon' but for some reason the fact that he doesn't have a drummer pushes things into uncharted territory. Overdubbing has rarely produced such interesting experiments. The always melodic but never lame or 'pretty' Surman is obviously enjoying himself in these Synth, sequencer drenched tracks. A mind trip for sure. Recommended!"
