Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
God, this is a beautiful CD.
I reviewed Dreamend’s debut CD, “As if By Ghosts” about a year ago (August 2004) and I loved that one as well. There’s something so dreamy and floaty about this music. I want to light candles, incense and lay on the floor with headphones on.
Last time I was blown away by their packaging and this time they toned it down a little but it’s still a work of art. There is no jewel case, it’s just a hard cardboard envelope with funky lovely artwork.
The music hasn’t changed all that much. It’s atmospheric, trippy and beautiful. Not much in the way of lyrics…well there might be, but unless you’re really trying, that’s not going to be a focal point for you. It’s that wash of sound that will grab you most, I bet.
I do, however wish it had more tracks. But there are some that are pretty long, so though there are only 6 tracks, there is about 35 minutes of music. Lovely music.
