CD Reviews

Wonderful and subdued
Joao P. Canhenha | 02/29/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw Steve Jansen in an Anja Garbarek concert in 2002. Coincidentally she appears in one of the tracks of this release, as does Jansen's brother the fantastic David Sylvian (the record is actually released through his label).
This is an intimate and delicate record, made of small sounds that create a very soothing atmosphere. It reminded me of some of the work that Harold Budd and David Sylvian have done, but it has it's own personality. I really have enjoyed it tremendously and I hope Steve Jansen continues to release more music."
