This was a pretty cool CD. It's reminiscent of bands from the 70's with a modern or even futuristic touch to it. I was amazed at how varied the songs were and yet the flow of the CD is seamless. There's an atmospheric feel to it. You can sit there and close your eyes and just listen to the beautiful songs on this release with some latte in your hand. This is a record that you have to listen to from beginning to end. You can't skip any tracks or else you'll miss out on something. This is also the kind of record that if you listen to it a few times you discover more and more things that you didn't notice before. This is not for the faint of heart.
