tonepoet I'm getting out of the drone-ish type ambient (with the exception to artists like Stars Of The Lid or William Basinski or Between Interval) and getting more into compositionally strong soundscapes with cinematic undertones like this. I love the artwork, the songwriting, and the production is just unbelievable. I wish that I had access to the same resources, and had his mind for creation. I'll be wearing this out more and more in the future, it's perfect! Favorite track: Places Between.

Ews Nsj replaces oxygen. how can one place the words. soft, delicate breezes enlighten a child quickly growing day by day, lying among the tall grass even with the rain. imaginations are true innocence.. are the pieces contained herein, floating in the mind like feathers in the wind. borrowing the past, ah do you remember playing in the gardens of summer we took for granted. Highly recommend the first album "Standing in Silence" as well...breath-stealing. Favorite track: Borrowing The Past.

Dario Lupo As usual, Rhian's music is just outstanding. Really cinematic, also mysterious in some parts. Favorite track: Borrowing The Past.
