Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-05-05 
Ambient/electronics music, fairly busy but soft/moody overall. With airy, cavernous vocals, some in English, some who-knows-what. Very melodic stuff. Even the darker tracks have a new-agey harmlessness to them.

Most tracks traverse multiple phases, so they don't get too monotonous.

Most tracks segue.

1*- Slow, almost reggae-like deep beat. Low, echoey spoken vocals. Chaotic intro including water splashing sounds.
2- Mellow, almost new-agey groove. Pretty. Sounds a bit like cirque-du-soleil kind of music.
3- Dark, lots of water splashing
4*- Midtempo groove, shadowy. Gets all floaty at the end.
5- Moody synth intro, another midtempo groove
6- Sad cello and gunfire, then belllls
7*- Serene. Off-tempo feel.
8- Peaceful, with brash sci-fi percussion effects
9- Slow, peaceful guitar
