Its only occasionally as gloomy as the title and cover suggests. I just like the sound and looks of it.
-Picture yourself floating in some sort of limbo whilst semi-consciously drifting in and out of dreams. Some of them pleasant and beautiful while others eerie and dark but every time you you're about to grasp what its all about, the scenery changes. Perhaps forces of good and evil are fighting for your soul to keep. I don't know I've never been dead – and I don't have a soul. Far out! - but almost gentle enough to qualify as a relaxation tape.
Do yourself a favour and listen all the way through or else you'll miss out on Mal Waldron's stunning farewell.
