The Quintessential Hassell Album,
This review is from: Power Spot (Audio CD)
Could it be that this album was not previously available on CD? Shame on the record company, because this, along with "Dressing For Pleasure," is Hassell's most accessible effort to date. It's got the long, meditative meanderings for which we all love him, it's got the explosive and rhythmic short pieces, and it has a confidence in its mission that is lacking in most "New Age" (sorry to use that term in reference to Hassell) efforts. Its sounds seem deeply rooted in the earth, yet transport the listener to staggering heights. I could rummage my mind for more hyperbolic phrases, but they would fall far short in describing the power of this album.
