Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-11-03 
Oud (stringed instrument), piano an accordion playing slow pretty melodies with melancholy overtones. Sometimes not that "world" sounding, as it's packed with polite, flowing piano characteristic of the new-age side of ECM. Mostly slow and mellow, suitable for dusk scenes in movie soundtracks.

1- Pretty theme, takes its time.
2- Darkly dramatic. Midtempo pace
3- Slow, stately, pretty. Slow piano gets irritating at the end
4- Slowish, serious, heavy with classical piano
5- Slow, a bit dark
6- Upbeat, with propulsive oud soloing early on
7- Vaguely mid-Eastern riff, crystalline new agey piano
8- Slow
9- Nicely ringing melody, gently mid/fast
10- Forcefully midtempo minor key. Serious but toe-tapping
11- Upbeat and slowish, catchy chords; nice accordion solo later
12- Sad oud, slow and resigned. Crisp accordion burbling later
13- Solo piano reprise of 4. Lyrical, kinda boring.
