For me one of Art Zoyds best and strongest albums which marked the end of there more chamber classical RIO sound with real instruments.
A good deal miimalistic with lots of repetition this album is expertly and hypnoticaly integrated with its canvas of rich instrumentation.
Highlights as ever are the Thierry Zaboitzeff pieces ( especially the opening track ) with his excellent bass guitar work.
