The sleeve art/music synergy is strong with this one. In a weird way the music actually sounds like a sun-drenched, motionless boat on a shimmering sea. This album and an assortment of fruit-flavored Polar seltzer beverages have been helping me survive the insane heat and humidity lately. It's very pretty music, perhaps best experienced on a hot summer night after the sun has gone down. Among the flute and effects is some sort of hammered string instrument that suggests eastern lands on the horizon... Here's the main suite from side 2. Music by P. Lemel and E. Marving.
