AllMusic Review by

Mystery School is a set of deep, thought-provoking compositions from Ambient Temple of Imagination -- Richard Sun and Seofon. This set is steeped in the traditions of mysticism, shamanism, magic, arts, and meditation. ATOI has constructed large-scale atmospheres and dynamic soundscapes to convey the duo's messages. The overtones are somber, the textures are organic, the imagery is vivid. They add some weird samples to set the hook and reel listeners in. The sound world is curious, scary, and safe; ATOI skirts the danger zone without entering. This disc will appeal to fans of Aphex Twin, Dilate, and Solar Quest.
