This may sound cheesey, but if you listen to this album with your eyes closed, you're in for a journey. i felt like i was hovering 15 feet above the earth, flying through the trees of a great forest. i was high at the time, but i can't recommend this highly enough. oh wait, i gave it four stars. alright, i lied. there's room for more zeal.

this is a good album , but it lacks something that the rest of the savath & savalas releases have, maybe because its on anti instead of warp, maybe because Eva Puyuelo Muns isnt on the album. every warp release has had a certain signature sound, this release seems to wander more into Scotts heritage roots sound and has less or no glitch beats. i really like the album, but listeners who lean more towards the apropa't, rolls + waves e.p., and manana e.p., or Scotts prefuse/delarosa + asora sound, might wanna take a listen before purchasing. very nice and relaxing as always though.

If you're looking for another Apropa't, then yes, maybe this isn't for you.. yet. When I first got this, I scanned through the songs & left it unplayed on my ipod for months. But some things are acquired &, like the taste of tea, take time to appreciate. If you let the taste of this album slowly develop in your mouth, you'll be left with a gift that you've earned; something that will last. This isn't a pop-hit album, this isn't even an album that you listen to really, this is something you have to feel. & it's so rare to find music like this, music that helps you gently open up, music that leaves you so peacefully vulnerable. Now it's always on rotation, to make up for the many months of collecting dust, when I didn't know what I had.

_Golden Pollen_, Scott Herren's third album as Savath & Savalas, starts off familiarly enough with wavy, modulated tones. But he seems much more interested in actual songwriting, rather than the mood-building he constructed with earlier album. Indeed, "Estrella de Dos Caras" is as straightforward as Herren has ever written. _Golden Pollen_ also sees Herren taking the primary role as vocalist, which flattens the album some. Even though he layers his voice to give a choral effect like on "Paisaje," his shortcomings and inexpressiveness still creep in. But the music itself is worth the shortcomings: "Concreto" takes a more cinematic approach, giving over to a wideness of sound, while "Mi Hijo" drifts into a sonic wilderness. The second half of the album eschews the thick layering for cleaner lines, and tinges of melancholy Spanish fados haunt the edges of several tracks, like the more stripped-down "Faltamos Palabras" or "Tormenta de Flor." An flawed album, but a worthwhile one nonetheless.
