AllMusic Review by

The New Age electronica world of Tom Vedvik will immediately draw listeners into its soothing expanses and burbling undercurrents. Drawing on the dreamy wash of ambient music, trance-inducing beats, a battery of natural sounds, and a high production sheen, Vedvik makes music that soothes in the manner of classic New Age, yet sounds utterly contemporary.

The pulse of "India Ink," for example, provides a subtle rhythmic drive that guides the listener deeper and deeper into the folds of the composition. The "Invisible Landscape," the lead-off track, creates an exotic mix of woodwinds, percolating hand percussion, and wide swaths of synthesizer. Tailor-made for headphone listening, yet also appropriate for more formal types of meditation, SLOWDIVER will appeal to fans of New Age, ambient, and relaxing electronica.
