Another impressive disc from DV. The moog synthesizer although not the same as a Theremin reminds me of the original Star Trek series. Fantastic surround, would be good as a Quad demo.

I sat and listened to this once again last night and really got into it. It’s only about the 3rd time I’ve listened to this but the last few times it seemed good but dated. However this time I decided to let it be part of an unspecified time and it sounded great to just let it be itself. It’s a very enjoyable SACD and the surround mix is nicely involving. It sort of gets into a groove after the first track that lasts for the rest of the album and includes the extra track at the end. I like it lots.
