The Absolute Sound

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald
A splendid 1993 compilation that takes the drifting, atmospheric end of the Hearts of Space catalog to provide seventy minutes of dreamy bliss, starting with Raphael and closing with Paul Avgerinos. This is a terrific collection of dreaming music, but I suppose we should warn you that after spending some time playing these little mind-movie soundtracks, you're likely to spend a lot of money buying the complete albums.
