Relatively mellow, mostly instrumental prog rock. Relaxing and calming, but not fluff - the gentleness of the music belies a complexity and virtuosity. These guys know what they're doing and they do it well.
Favorite track: Tintinnabulation.
It brings in mind the flavour of late 70s progressive rock and jazz experiments. There were moments in the opening track that I thought it was Miles Davis' Bitches Brew band playing on after the lp was over. Some deep space trips to be found here. Joyful !
Favorite track: Nomenclature.

Oozes cool. There's a lot I could write about this, just listen to it. Between the amazing Skyjelly tracks and the darker psychedelic Solilians offerings, this is a wonderful release. A really beautiful record. - Limnetic Villains Limnetic
