I picked this album up second hand about 19 years ago and I am still playing it to this day!
I was always a fan of Andy Summers , he was such an intergral part of the Police with his driving guitar riffs and solos. Listening to this 1989 album for the first time was an enjoyable surprise, although more main stream than his earlier works with Robert Fripp and the fantastic Mysterious Barricades this album is a very atmospheric piece of music.
It starts with the fabulous opening track A Piece of Time with its muted guitar and dreamy quality, I remember listening to this album on a very long and tiring drive through Eastern Germany it just eased the stress of the drive somehow and the Kilometers just flashed past.
One of the other outstanding Tracks for me on this album is "Piya Tose" featuring Indian Najma Akhtar withits strange an exotic vocals and time signatues. Also Check out Rain Forest in Manhatten another good track.
A dreamy work for dreamier times maybe, but it still ranks up there as a great album for me and introduced me to several of our Andy's other albums and ,therefore, hours of quality music.
I still to this day scour the internet for any new release by Mr Summers, he's quality.

Andy's Finest Recording to Date 6 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is an amalgamation of Andy Summers' talent as a musician and composer. No two tracks are alike; they all have unique sounds and textures which convey emotions and feelings that words cannot describe. A listening of this recording from beginning to end will take you through a muscial journey. Tracks to pay special attention to are "Imagine You", "A Piece of Time", "Island of Silk", "Journey Through Blue Regions", and "Rainforest in Manhatten".

Unsung jazz classic! From the former guitarist of The Police! 21 July 2006
By Brad Torgersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was in a music store in 1990, idly seeking something new to listen to, when the title track of this album began filtering through the speakers. Summers' signature electric guitar, as heard on The Police, is in full flare here, and I was quite surprised to discover Summers' adeptness at turning rock and reggae riffs into smooth, sophisticated guitar jazz.

Even sixteen years later, this album displays a richness of performance and production which stands up under the test of time. In no way a flaccid "Kenny G" knock-off, this soft Jazz album is relaxing and provoking, ideal for quiet romantic evenings, intimate social gatherings, or even a night drive through the countryside or city.

Of special note, besides the beautiful title track, is "Piya Tose", featuring English-Indian singer Najma Akhtar. Gorgeously sung, Najma's lyrics blend marvelously with Summers' guitar to make for a particularly unusual and delightful listening experience.

I also liked the final track, "A Thousand Stones", which is Summers playing a capella, and is reminiscent of Pink Floyd in its haunting and somewhat sorrowful quality.

Summers' most peaceful, contemplative creation 12 Feb. 2008
By High Speed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Reviewing Andy Summers albums is like selecting the course from a meal at a five-star restaurant? How does one select the best from a whole body of great work? All one can do is characterize slightly different flavors of greatness and relish each bite.

That said, this is a monumental album by Andy Summers. It's the top of his creative, self-written work before he started moving into more traditional jazz and covers. In this period of Charming Snakes, Golden Wire, and World Gone Strange, this is the most peaceful and cerebral album.

Just buy it, listen to it over and over, and rest assured that this is one of the most fulfilling musical meals you'll ever eat. The good news is, you can keep eating it over and over and never get full, never get fat. That's how deep this album is. $11, what a bargain for work like this. The only thing I would ask is that someday Andy Summers re-records these songs without a drum machine, to see what other effects he can achieve.

An inspiring album that has stood the test of time. 7 Sept. 2006
By Nicole N. Pellegrini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of all of Andy Summers' post-Police productions, I have to say that "The Golden Wire" has remained perhaps my favorite. The ambient, relaxing, other-worldly atmospheres created by Andy's brilliant guitar work are mesmerizing. Fans of the Police will recognize the "voice" of his instrument here, even if used in ways entirely removed from a pop-rock setting. Touches of world music also enliven the mix, with the lovely Indian-inspired vocal track "Piya Tose". This is not jazz, exactly, but neither is it bland or directionless ambient music. I sometimes wish Andy had done more along these lines instead of going towards more traditional jazz recordings in more recent years, but then again, he is a musician of tremendous talent who will often lead me into genres I'd never thought I'd explore. Highly recommended to guitar enthusiasts everywhere.

Imagine: Rain Forest in Manhattan 14 Jan. 2006
By Sergey Lenkov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first time listened to this CD, I thought: Andy Summers from Police? It couldn`t be so... But it is so.
One of the best albums of guitar ambient music, which I ever heard. There`s no samples on Amazon.com, but you could beleive, that album is very melodic, meditative (but with its own energy), music is intellectual and picturescue with distinctive sound of electric guitar by Summers.
Of course, nothing in style of the music remindes of Police, rock or new wave.
For the lovers of ambiental music.
