To me this track and "The darkest hours" are - until now - the best recordings of E-Mantra. Unmatched sinisterly, cold, powerful but yet so slow, liquid and psychedelic... what an experience with good headphones!! derkobi

It's epic and transcendental. I know that sounds pretentious but I can't describe this album without using the words 'epic' and 'transcendental' haha. Sit in the right spot in your listening room and crank it.......see what I mean? LCG1
