Blending the two core aspects of his work, the stunningly expansive Destination Beyond combines immersive atmospheric harmonic zones (like those recently experienced on Dynamic Stillness) into the setting of spiraling patterns and hypnotic rhythms (similar to those found on Arc Of Passion). Perfectly blending these two sonic qualities over the course of the continuous 71-minute piece.
''In its scope and tone, Destination Beyond beautifully bridges the breadth of Roach's career. The sequencer work carries echoes of his high-energy early releases and his love of hands-on sound creation, while the breathier, more meditative spaces are the signature of Roach's adeptness at taking us quietly inside ourselves. There is a fair amount of welcome familiarity here as Roach digs deep, and yet it is also wonderfully fresh and eminently listenable.'' --Hypnagogue

One evening, when I found myself in traumatic transition, and I tuned in to that station, hearing the first two measures of a Steve Roach track (on "Music From the Hearts of Space"), I felt like I could Breathe fully, for the first time in days.. instantly freed from the anxieties I had locked myself into. Hey! That's Medicine!
I also use this nicely long track, in fact, to replace my use of "white noise" at night, when I am ready to fall asleep, because it doesn't so much guide me, like more traditional musics do, and yet, it lets my mind wander through a friendly mystery until I find myself waking to the alarm several hours later.
During the days, when I turn to this track, it is Not to fall asleep, but also functions the same way and sets a tone of welcoming open mystery.. a great space for creative folk to be in, I say.
I gotta say that I have been listening to Steve for ten years now and his albums seem to be getting better with each release - either that or I am so spaced out with his sounds I no longer know my analogue from my digital.
This release contains elements of his low volume ambient works (such as A Deeper Silence - my all time favorite piece) where the sound carries you out of this world - into the space between spiral arms of our galaxy; to the analogue frenzy of Arc of Passion, Core, Light Fantastic. However, it most closely resembles Steve's last release: Dynamic Stillness for a general mix of all the soundscapes he has made uniquely his own.
Whatever, I love this album and consider it part of my escape kit back to sanity - a toolkit for the soul.
Perfect music for a long car trip along the Interstate!
If one is a Steve Roach fan, this cd is a MUST! If one hasn't yet heard his music, this is not a bad place to begin! A+++
