    I'm not normally a girl to sit and listen to an album from start to finish but Bellcurve lets me do nothing but. It's really the perfect record to zen out to. I've listened to RockPaperScissors quite a bit and this is absolutely the tastiest remix ever and the ideal companion cd. It's both different enough and yet all my favorite bits are still in there in one form or another. I just love it.

    what a superb record this is! really well produced ,great melodies ,almost like in a world of its own.Michael Brook is someone whose name I see on films but this is the first 'artist' CD i have come across of his.He is superb,such dynamic movement across all the "mostly instrumental" tracks.My favorite is "Tangerine" for the fantastic guitar"?" sound....on 2nd thoughts it could be a Tibetan ceremonial horn-either way it's great as are all the sounds on this stellar CD-really awakens the imagination-get it! make someone's day mellow!

    I was sent thid CD 2 weeks by some heavenly angel who must have known I was looking for an album to sweep me away into another world.I was only aware of Michael brook thru "inconvenient truth"which I like but this is completely different.It contains some of the most compelling ambient rock music I've heard since the demise of Pink Floyd-there is practically no higher praise.From the moment this CD started i was entranced with the vibe of it, yet never knowing what is going to happen next.It all runs together like a mix tape,very chilled but so melodic and deep sounding. .Brook's guitar sound is amazing,glacial yet warm and dynamic.It is sound fantastic and the last song with a female vocalist builds and builds until you feel like your head is going to blow off with the beauty of it all. I am really overwhelmed by how much I love this record and want everybody to hear it-I love it-Well done Michael! I'm a new and very big fan of what you do.
