Since I got this, it's been on almost constantly. I like it! I'm quite new to this sort of music, but I can tell good stuff when I hear it. Dedicated to all hardcore e-z listening fans, the notes say, "This is not a trance-ambient-techno-industrial-dance project: that sounds way too presumptuous! It's meant to be a soundtrack of sorts, to perhaps...life." Some of it is clearly dance, some much more 'meditational'. Four of the 10 tracks have vocals, with some powerful lyrics that reminded me of the Psalms. "Nightfall & Splendor" stands out as a particularly strong song, although on the whole it was the instrumental tracks that really got to me. If you're involved at all in 'alternative' worship, this would provide some excellent material to stimulate the imagination. I just like listening to it and as the notes say, "JESUS LIVES! It's all good."
