Tranquil, meditative ambient/drone from The Nautilus Project, and the first such release from the artist (as his usual output falls under the dub techno umbrella). His penchant for lush atmospheres is in evidence here, with an earthly theme replacing his usual aquatic motif. The cover image of the edge of a misty forest is perfect for the tone of the music, which carries the listener on a journey through some unknown woods. The pads and textures are often similar to those heard in some dub techno pieces (especially the full-on chords in "A Sleeping Garden" and "Snow Covered Woods"), but the tracks are stripped of rhythm and bass, so fans of NP's usual output could be taken aback by this new approach. For me, though, it works very well; ambient music can easily be boring if there aren't enough subtle changes in the sounds, but here even though the pieces are often based around single drones or slow, two-note patterns, the surrounding textures, effects and field recordings make the tracks envelop me, holding my attention throughout, as quality ambient should. The fact that the album is a skilful dub-ambient blend makes it all the more appealing. I'd recommend it to any fan of ambient or dub techno.
