"There are times when just by listening to the first few notes you instantly know that you are in for a treat. I do not know how is does, but it works for me every time. I hope this is also true for you as the opening track entitled Tradition is a magnificent slice of electronic music. Surely there is no way that this standard can be maintained. The following track features gentle ambiences and moody bass notes that are carefully assembled into a haunting main theme composed using lots of differing sounds and sequences that continues to maintain the fascination. I think that Delight certainly lives up to its title and on reflection is even better than the opener. Area starts as being very low-fi with muffled sequences that are almost on the point of annoyance but slowly the quality appears to improve and rich Tangerine Dream style sequences emerge that are bound to please many. Technical quality is restored on the following track that again provides classic melodic electronic ambiences that persuade the mind to relinquish the mental pressure and all anguish is banished. Relaxation is the only thought to be encouraged when listening and thoroughly enjoying Renovation. This excellent release finishes in true ambient style with the appropriately titled Restplace, which describes the evocative piece precisely. Dennis Knopper has a major flair, which thankfully he shares with those who choose to listen to this truly exquisite music"
