Cool, majestic, hypnotic, a recording that seems to be designed to place the grandeur of the universe in between your surround speakers. The music conjured up by Roach for this album consists mainly of sweeping tones, broadly painted onto a reverb-drenched canvas, making this a perfect album for internal games involving mental planetariums, stargazing of the soul. The Magnificent Void is immense, chilly and captivating, musical science fiction that leaves behind a shocking emptiness when the last tone drifts away into the universe.
