In my opinion this is one of the best ambient album. 15 min and longer tracks are listened so harmoniously that they don't let you bored.
Synthetic Forest - the most memorable track, maybe because it is the first on the album. Maybe because this is really the best on this album. Slightly distorted noises of nature, to which various synthetic sounds gradually interspersed and quiet distant voice as if a familiar song on the radio - all this fills the reality so much that only worth closing your eyes as you find yourself in another world. On this the first track does not end, but only begins. At the 10th minute there is a synthetic bass that foreshadows the rhythm. And after a couple of minutes drum synth set the pace, which is supplemented by Lasswell's bass (probably the only live instrument on the album). Music has acquired an almost dance rhythm, but not for dance floor of course, but could rather sound somewhere in the Chill Out room. All this is the main denouement in the middle of the composition. Then the track begins to fade, about the same as it began.
The next two tracks are not memorable, because the first was quite colorful and very long - 28 minutes. But certainly the album continues with good ambient and ends with the shortest track on this album "Landing Circle", which can be identified as Dark Ambient style. If all the previous time could be imagined, then you walk in the morning and afternoon in a very strange forest, now it seems like night has come. But it's short enough, so if someone does not like the dark side of things, then you can relax a little, because the night here is 10 times shorter than the rest of the day

PS. Sorry for not perfect english, so if you notice mistakes or confusing places, please let me know, i will fix it.
I love this album. Slow, winding, thumpy. Perhaps too slow for some, but Fine ambient listening music.
