AllMusic Review by

The Eternal Now is a contemplative ambient work that begs to be experienced in the ambience in which it was conceived...in candlelight. The sounds whirl about gently, flow with determined leisure, and become deliriously pleasant, the sound of peace. Bone is ever the jester with his delightfully sneaky vocal and sound samples that pepper the work. The tracks were recorded in the wee hours in a candelit studio overlooking a winter lake. The CD contains two separate works: "Zone" chronicles the quest for peace, and "The Millenium Pages" reflects the wonder at arriving.

Bone has signed with a new label, Boston's TerraLuna, which will release two CDs a year while leaving him free to record under various pseudonyms for other labels. In addition, look for tracks to appear on compilations from as far away as Moscow, the U.K. and the Netherlands.
