Review of the kinda lame-looking but actually quite interesting synthtastic meditationcore CD by Howard Givens and Craig Padilla. Review published on Heathen Harvest and generously edited by the always-present Sage Weatherford.
"For a good nine or ten minutes, I felt like I was browsing for crystals
in a ‘magick’ shop: nothing but new-age drones washing gently over
relentlessly positive-sounding synth patches, calming tones respectfully
floating around a pink fluffy cloud of inner peace. But then the
synths got darker and rougher and an energetic arpeggiator crept in (as
well as some treated guitar loops), and the whole thing went from
Theosophical Society Bookshop to classic-era Tangerine Dream."
