AllMusic Review by

Two long-awaited collections from Oregon synthesist Michael Garrison offer his broad body of music, broken down into his two predominate styles. A Positive Reflecting Glow covers the more uptempo, sequencer-driven tracks from his eight releases, plus one new track, "Upon Blue Heaven." "Tranquility Cove" gathers slower tracks from four of his albums, and again adds one unreleased piece, "Invisible Sun." Slow is only relative for Garrison's revved-up style, but the impact of his music, produced over the past decade, is heard to full advantage on these two strong compilations.
