A very pleasant listen, lushly electronic, pastoral, ethnic acoustic, experimental, very melodic, somewhat psychedelic, and sometimes rhythmic. The album recalls 'Celestial Ocean', the last album of Vandroogenbroeck's earlier project Brainticket, though its sound is even further removed from rock, much mellower, and less overtly psychedelic or electronic. It is much more similar to the Brainticket work of 1980/82, though somewhat less experimental, warmer, more pastoral, and easier to get into. Its also more melodic. Flute predominates mostly on the album, backed by a variety of synth sounds and textures, as well as other instruments at times. There are no vocals on the album.
