    It doesn’t feel right to say this is “ambient” or “drone” though. Neither of them really describe this piece of music. What could? It is a journey into your own mind, in which you find a passageway that leads to a tunnel made of bright neon lights that are all the colours of the rainbow. Tuxedo wearing crooners eyeball you wordlessly as they play guitars while ballet dancers play the keyboards. You exit this now vertical tunnel and find yourself in the midst of space. You gaze at the stars amidst silence, the music only coming from inside your own mind… which is what you entered in the first place, so I guess the universe and your mind must now be inside out. Slowly the waves and bubbles of water start to rise (“from where?” you ask) before completely inundating you. You are now in an ocean. As the water recedes you find yourself washed up on a beach on a palm-tree’ed island. You are completely alone.

    [continued] Wait. No! There are people over there in the distance. A music festival of sorts. The band is playing and the crowd are dancing. They are floating above the warm sand with their hips seemingly fixed in space as their legs, head and torso flail about as if still being dragged around in the sea. All motion, like the music, is fluid though. An organ begins to play behind your eyes inside your head. You wake up. It was all a dream. That’s how I would describe it anyway, but I guess I’m stuck with saying this is “ambient drone”. Sigh.

    Seriously one of the best songs I heard in my whole life. When the guitar kicks in at 1:45 is one of the most beautiful and intense things I experienced ever.

    Showed this song to a friend who doesn't listen to much electronic music. He described it as being like "electronic orchestra".

    If I only had 12 minutes to live, I'd play this song.

    This track is so unbelieveably awesome that it's impossible for the human mind to comprehend.
