A few words - if you are familiar with, and fond of Harold's work, I am certain you will not be disappointed by this new collection, although it bares a certain similarity to his previous output in terms of form and content, at least that is true for the first 8 tracks in the collection where we have the somewhat diffusive moody ambience we are accustomed to hearing, replete with carefully chosen notes descending onto a broadly textured canvas, to bask in the echo chamber.

Then, to my surprise, the album veered off into rather muted string-based orchestral pieces - pleasant, thought-provoking, but for me, rather out of sync with the other pieces. It is as though we have two bodies of work, joined at the hip.

The orchestral pieces will no doubt find their way into cinema one day, as haunting back-drops to something quietly miserable.

Overall, this would not rank as my personal favourite album by HB, but, regardless of that - 4 stars out of 5.

A long career in music is not always a good sign. Here is a divine blessing. Harold Budd is in great shape and this album shows once again his great talent. In line with other major recent works such as "Avalon Sutra" and, better yet, in the line of great older works such as "The Pearl" or "White Arcades". Absolutly indispensable.

You can't help but admire Harold Budd's work ethic. For someone who technically dislikes the instrument he plays and the very name 'ambient', it's a blessing he has the ability to compose music so exquisite, relative to that very genre.

Thankfully - 'In The Mist' is another wonderful selection that starts with that tried and tested minimalist approach. It's the way I love to listen to his music - just Harold, his piano and occasional accompaniments, where each note played is like a mini symphony, creating depth and substance to each piece, when all is so sparse and minimal. Listen to the first track 'Haru Spring', every single resonated note has a prolonged life that majestically merges with the next pressed key. Even when no keys are played, this enriching sound continues.

'The Whispers' and 'The Startled' follow in similar vein - and these first three beauties are somewhat reminiscent ..well lets say - they remind me of music relevant to two past...dare I say it: "ambient masterpieces" - 'The Pearl' and 'The Plateaux of Mirror'.

The tone changes slightly on 'The Foundry' (for Mika Vainio) and 'The Art of Mirrors' (after Derek Jarman) - just simple piano with additional keyboard variants - and though equally divine, I can't help wonder how they would sound with just solo piano?

And then we're back to just Budd and subtle piano with the lovely 'Three Fingered Jack'.

The mood and style changes again with 'Greek George' and 'Black Bart'. Both lack that calming ambient vibe, having a more contemporary feel with eerie sound affects - perfect film score material.

I,m a big Eno fan, Harold Budd has collaborated with Eno a few times, His work is every bit as good,
"In the mist" is a brilliant piece of work.
Great to chill out to, love it as background.
Great for a walk along a deserted beach.
This stuff will be around for years.
