'Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.' - G.K. Chesterton
Andreas Tilliander in Roland-only mode creates fantastic mood pieces on this album. Not ambient, but fluid, subtle, sometimes even funky (in the techno sense, like Kraftwerk stuck in a lift with Bernie Worrell, but not quite that good), always trance-inducing, but not in some hippy-dippy Trance way; mesmerising is a better word, perhaps, as we bath in the warm tones that wriggle and weave throughout - hints of Basic Channel, the understated bump and grind of Roland gear getting frisky - balmy bass lines expounding the low-end theory amid luxurious reverberations - penthouse Acid for mature listeners who would rather recline than rave...and that's a recommendation.
