I was a bit surprised at my first listen to this CD. Unlike the other 2 releases, this one is slower, and seems to be deeper- looking within almost. Unlike the inviting ride of "Opaque" or the transcendent melody of "Shadow to Light", these songs seem light on the keyboard and heavy on the atmospheres. However, within this seemingly different style, there also exists a mystical quality, a more subtle side, that seems to give this album great meaning.
I believe the best track on here is "imaginatio". The wailing electric guitar seems to shake with raw energy, while the melody and atmosphere carry the listener far away. I can think of no better way than this song to end 3 CD's of musical genius.
I can't suggest this album as a first buy for amethystium. However, this CD is essential to the series. And I hope that Ramfjord continues to produce music in the future.
This is a cd that will be liked by all who enjoy Enigma, Mehdi, Adiemus, Delerium, Mythos or even Robert Miles. It is the very essence of good electronic new age. So tranquil, yet so spirited (and interesting coverart!), this cd is a refreshing break from my well-worn collection, I just keep wanting to listen to it over and over again. I am amazed!
It reminds me somewhat of Enigma, but still very unique. This is music to the soul. Absolutely relaxing, as well.
ALSO RECOMMENDED: Mehdi ~ Instrumental Series 1-7 ..A True Gem...Samples are at SoothingMusic,Com...Just go Listen.
"Arcus" begins with a crackling sound effect and becomes a beautiful, heavenly track with a beautiful blend of mid-tempo beats and beautiful female vocal effects. In a sense, this reminds me of Paul Scharz's "State of Grace" song.
Amethystium is an artist that throws a seed of desire into the listener, it slowly grows and lingers forever as the audience carries the faint memory of how lovely the music was and it keeps rekindling the need to listen to it as often as possible. This is a highly addictive artist and I can almost guarantee some sort of an obsession to form with anyone who enjoys this type of music. Similar artists include Yanni, Govi, David Arkenstone, David Lanz, Enigma and Delerium just to name some. The music is a mix of electronic pop, new age, some sparking piano and chant like melodies mixed in with angelic voices. It's the perfect thing to put on at night or when one wants to chill out and let the sounds take them away into far away galaxies of pleasure.
My favorite piece on this disc is Shadowloands - the deep, rich, embalming sound is almost hypnotic tune that always catches me under it's spell.

All in all I recommend any album by Amethystium. Each has its own personality which leaves the listener satisfied and wanting more.

A misty distant land
Amongst the caps of hoary hills
Is hidden safely from the foreign eyes...

A good combination of New Age & Techno - Amethystyum pulls it off in this 3rd cd of what was originally a trio & has since cranked out more albums!
A good cd & very creative!
