Those of you who read about Virus in CR28 will be well primed for this exceptional album which navigates the electronic vistas of instrumental ambience. And to keep the whole thing Christocentric the booklet offers spiritual contemplations to go with each track. My particular favourites at the moment are "Over The Face Of The Deep" with the sounds of wind and water integrated into a shimmering soundscape and "Humanity", an eery anthem made for a cathedral. Elsewhere the talented duo quote Proverbs 16:3 ("Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed"). They clearly have. What could have been vacuously pretentious isn't, instead 'Ambient Theology' holds the listener in its hypnotic patterns. Those looking for pop hooks or obvious dancefloor anthems had better look elsewhere. But those wishing to come on a strange, musical journey of haunting electronic improvisations this is the album you've been waiting for.
