Format: Audio CD
An ambitious album of contrasts, that showcases Michael Brook's wide-ranging musical vision. Here he is at the helm orchestrating a rich array of sonic colours and textures into an often profound album. I have long enjoyed the artist's collaborations with U Srinivas and the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and this album covers some of that same ground, whilst exploring further into luxuriant territory. There is the fathomless singing of the Bulgarian Classical Choir and the Cosmic Voices Choir Of Sofia, and the might of the Bulgarian Studio Orchestra, Djivan Gasparyan's desolate duduk, Claude Chalhoub's phrasing on violin.

Some of the spaces are peopled by individual voices: "Pond" features Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and sounds like a step further down their shared path, out into ideas just beyond Night Song; Lisa Germano and Paul Buchanan sing lead on "Want" and the title track respectively, the album here veering into a more mainstream - if downcast - rock vibe; Ben Christopher sings briefly on the epic, detached drift through space of "Pasadena"; and a recording of Richard Burton reading extracts from Dylan Thomas' "Under Milkwood" is set to music on "Darker Room".

Michael Brook's infinite guitar roams through these soundscapes, a dark presence moving sinuously, sometimes I am reminded vaguely of Mike Oldfield, though the comparison seems tenuous on closer inspection, there are even unexpected traces of Hank Marvin in there. I like his use of the quiet between notes, it is as if they too are created by strings on his guitar, pieces of negative space. At times this journey takes on the feel of a soundtrack to some extraordinary movie yet to be conceived, or some chapter in the life of the listener still over the horizon.

I nearly missed this. I haven't seen any reviews. Michael Brook continues his release of fine albums. The music is varied and well played, and although I prefer his instrumental stuff, the vocals (particularly Paul Buchanan) are excellent. He continues to be one of the most underrated artists.

I am waiting this album almost ten years.

It is so interesting, it is not something very world or ambient.

But it is very pop.

I don't know why i use pop on this album.

But when i listen this album, I think it is not the past Michael's style.

It have more song.

It still very atmosphere and you can have a picture when you listen this album.

His trademake infinitie guitar is everywhere, but use in the pop way.

Michael has ask many musican to join and make the album more colour.

It is a nice album.
