Fans of All India Radio know of the band's links to Pink Floyd's music, even using decommissioned art work at times. This track will bring obvious reminders of the project's inspirational artist when at the beginning, you will be reminded of Floyd's "Let There Be More Light". But it only borrows from it at the beginning and later goes off into it's own further explorations with spoken word samples and a ethereal operatic vocal that stays subdued in the mix.
It later becomes more ambient for a while then a beat returns with slide guitar effects swirling around. Deep down under everything, an attentive listener will notice slight crackling and popping, giving it the desirable vinyl sound, but it is almost inaudible as the music continues to ebb and flow. This album is an excellent introduction to the music of All India Radio in that it is easy to listen to, quite accessible and less ambient than many of their albums.
However, it reaches audiences that might normally be frightened away by the ambient tag that the project has.
This album is proof that the music is beautiful and wonderful and may give tentative listeners the desire to search through the band's extensive discography, and in it, they will find some of the best electronic music around.
Yes, a good part of it is ambient, but it is always just as lovely as the music on this album. I highly recommend this album to those interested in something relaxing and even soothing even with its more upbeat attitude in times of worry and stress. It will take your mind off of your cares for a short time.
However, it is an album I find enjoyable anytime as there is a lot of dynamic texture and plenty of variety and surprises to make it an album to enjoy all of the time.
