AllMusic Review by

Mathias Grassow has been overtone singing for over 15 years. On his first collaboration with Jim Cole, The Hollow, he mustered up courage and sang lead vocals on one track. (He has been performing overtone on his solo CDs for years but has never cited himself as such.) The Last Bright Light is an overtone duet with Grassow and Cole. For each of these artists, it is their first CD on Hypnos Recordings, the premier label for ambient minimalism. It is right on target, too. These two artists have long embraced similar spiritual principles. They have shared those principles, quite liberally, with their listeners. Their recent activities have allowed them to share with each other and to share more deeply with their listeners. The human voice is the perfect vehicle for this healing experience. Cole and Grassow take that role seriously and deliver the goods. This CD will appeal to fans of Klaus Wiese, Anugama, Nawang Khechog, and Jonathan Goldman.
