Ambient fans who love to listen to delicate, introspective music should make sure to find a copy of this brand-new delicacy.
On the first disc, “Translucence”, the piano takes key position, and before you know it you seem to re-enter the world of the engaging album “The Pearl”, a stunning album Eno and Budd recorded years ago.
Putting on the second cd, “Drift Music”, the warm waves of synthesizers fill the sound spectrum with only occasionally some piano-keys.
When you love to listen to e.g. Ruben Garcia, James Johnson or Darshan Ambient, this cd will certainly compliment your collection.
All in all, John Foxx & Harold Budd have done an excellent job by delivering an album that cleans your head in one way, making you feeling comfortable in many others.
P.S. In 2011, a re-release of the album was put out which included the John Foxx, Harold Budd and Ruben Garcia collaboration “Nighthawks”. This piano-led minimal ambient work features heavily atmospheric tracks addressing darker shaded, comforting, melancholic and desolate moodscapes matching perfectly with the outcome of the other two recordings.
