ANOTHER AMAZING COMPILATION AMBIENT ALBUM FROM HYPNOS
Steven H. Propp | Sacramento, CA USA | 11/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This 74 minute CD (released in 1999) is the second collection (the first was The Other World) of pieces on the Hypnos label (from Portland) from ambient composers, who were asked to contribute pieces that fit the theme of "weightless and effortless."
Although some of the artists included are well known (Steve Roach, Kevin Keller, Ma Ja Le), others are less well-known (Rod Modell, Loren Nerell, etc.). Although it has an overall "darker" tone than the earlier "Other World" compilation, it remains beatless, ambient and atmospheric.
An excellent introduction to some artists you may have not heard before, and some new works of artists you HAVE heard before.
