AllMusic Review by

Diatonis' Landscape of a Dream is 110% pure meditative relaxation: calm, inspiring, synth-driven bliss, and open portals to sonic mind-peace. Diatonis, aka "Stuart White," offers flowing, warm electronic rivers, sometimes mysteriously distant, sometimes mother's-womb intimate, but always well-crafted and ambient. Don't look for melody or obvious loops or sequences -- you will only experience an ever-changing current of deep-mind sonics. Whether cathedral-keyed or space-movie track enigma -- Diatonis massages all the right ambient hot spots.

Nearest "sounds like"? Diatonis is mostly himself, but on "The River Flowing" a vague echo of Steve Roach is heard. Similar to the final track of Roach's Empetus (LP version) album, is Diatonis' "Ocean of Mercy," and it's sweet and tender peacefulness -- you may even be moved to lift your soul- voice to the King of Heaven during one listen. Now this is music for the spirit!
