Tears From the Compound Eye (4:04)

Cover of The Campfire Headphase

From The Campfire Headphase

The compound eye is found on most insects and some crustaceans. The eye is composed of many light-sensitive elements, each having its own refractive system and each forming a portion of an image. Most compound eyes feature hexagonal lenses in an array forming the pattern.

    Found myself listening to this song again late tonight...This is just so beautiful and profound. It is -amazing- just how much a song, sound, can have such meaning.

    One of the first tracks to blow my naive little mind away when I delved into ambient.

    I always get a feeling of nostalgia. Even if it was not long ago...

    "Tears From the Compound Eye" and "Age Tandems" by Secede must be the two most beautiful songs in the world. Both songs make you float in outer space, at least in your mind, and that feels hella good ;)

    No other track will ever have this effect on me. Ever.

    Four minutes of pure serenity. Truly, truly out of this world. I'll wait years and years and years if I have to hear more BoC, totally worth the wait.
