AllMusic Review by

In 1995, this album marked a new period in the music of Mythos. As the subtitle says, it is the first meditation/new age release of Stephan Kaske. A mostly Asian mood is created by softly pulsating, often bell-like sounds and the use of nature samples. The melodies have time to develop in the floating, slow-motion tracks. This is certainly a suitable album for meditation, but judging it as a listening experience alone leads to a discrepant impression. Sometimes the sounds and tunes tend to be too beautiful and smooth, and only create nice background music.
