about

'There's an over-riding sense of timelessness to the music on this album, and a deep sense of awe at what surrounds us in the cosmos ... a fine album that ranks with their finest.' John M Peters, The Borderland

'There are traditional timbres, such as the familiar classical guitar and strings, but also other sounds I love that I feel are underutilized in popular music, particularly the oboe. These are integrated seamlessly
with creative textures arising out of the modern studio:
theremin-like, UFO guitar; backwards tape effects; reverbed piano with vocals or other sounds way off in the distance.

The strength of this album, however, ultimately lies in the compositions, and Wileman is a true talent in this regard...Highly recommended, this is an album that I am fully confident for me will not diminish over time.' Joe McGlinchy, Ground And Sky

'A stunningly beautiful album that earns my highest recommendation' Jim Chokey, Expose
