The sound quality for a start is amazing. OTT afterall did the sound engineering for "Are You Shpongled?" so this is of no real surprise.
The music is deep and almost spiritual. Entwined layers of music come and go. The music is very deep and the bass is just lovely. When the occasional guitar is brought in this album reaches the divine! If your into Dub at all then this is the perfect album for you. If your into Shpongle or stuff like that then this is the perfect album for you.
It has never left the top of my music collection and i should imagine it will remain there for some years (Till OTT's next album is released.)
You know how you look for that ultimate loveliness in music? Discovering OTT may satisfy that search. I love great production. I make music myself and the smoother and silkier it is the better. I know of no other music that feels quite as much like melted chocolate as the Ott man.....I can only aspire....
Listen. Seriously. If you like music...whatever you're into, just buy it. You will NOT be disappointed. This is a serious MUST HAVE album....you'll have hours of silky pleasure over and over.
The best thing about this record has got to be the sound - the mix is simply brilliant and brings out all the little details. The music itself isn't always fantastic, but tracks like "Splitting an Atom" and "Smoked glass and chrome" more than make up for it.
If Ott were to make a new album with a bit more inventive music he'd get the last star too, but for now it's 4/5. I highly recommend this album, but make sure to check out Shpongle before you spend all your money...
you must buy this album, even if you don't like eletronica. you must buy this album, especially if you like ambient/electronica sounds. you must buy this album, if you can't believe that reggae beats can blend with electronic music and still sound absolutely beautiful. you must buy this album, if you thought that astral projection wasn't pushing the envelope far enough. you must buy this album, if you are a fan of jean-michel jarre, vangelis, tangerine dream, crystal method, klf, juno reactor, psykosonik, hallucinogen, infected mushroom, shpongle, world music, enigma, agricantus, kraftwerk, mike oldfield.
you must buy this album, if you despair of ever finding 60+mins long instrumental album that continuously inspire, uplift, nurture your imagination, relax and enlighten, bliss you out, lift the veil and let you glimpse the secrets of the universe, no matter how briefly, will put the cosmic cube within your grasp--basically transcendental music.
so no industrial, grungy sounds here a la front242, 9 inch nails, front line assembly, etc....Read more ›
Unlike a lot of the downtempo psy genre (Entheogenic, Shpongle etc) this particular album doesn't do much of the tedious "ethnic" samples, which is a blessed relief.
The only thing is that it gets boring after a while. With his other album Hallucinogen In Dub he had the work of another person to work with and turn into something new. When left to his own devices the products is melogic and decent but uninspired IMO. I'd like to hear him do something a bit different rather than the same format over and over.

Never heard of OT before but love this album, very refreshing...Published 17 months ago by R. P. Groves
He does it again awesome mix of dub electronics and a very subtle mix of Asian influencePublished on 7 Aug. 2014 by John Willett
How to best describe this album? Perhaps as a fine tribute to dub reggae with some laid-back psychedelia (Jack's Cheese and Bread Snack) and Indian influences (Splitting an Atom,... Read morePublished on 4 Dec. 2010 by J. E. Booth
This album is truly awful. Dull, repetitive, boring. Quite simply, Ott should stick to being a sound engineer rather than attempting to be a recording artist; I'm afraid he lacks... Read morePublished on 9 Dec. 2008 by JM LANE
