ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Atmospheric layers, textures and beats mirror the widely diverse landscapes of Arizona.

"Without a doubt, one of the top releases of 2002, a must have for serious lovers of a broad category of music that is labeled ambient these days." -Bill Binkelman / Wind & Wire

"Places in Arizona captures the heat coming off the rock in the deserts of the American Southwest as well as recording the history which has passed over these stones."
-Mark Teppo / Earpollution online magazine

More reviews:
"Splendid! This is a very relaxing ambient recording."
-ZGRAF

"Many of the tracks melt into one another, creating additional harmonies and/or effects during the transition, sometimes bordering psychedelic. Many tracks have spacy-sounding synths juxtaposed with more natural sounding, very rhythmic, percussion. Most of the tracks are great on their own. But the sequence of them makes each more enjoyable. Another person called this CD a "Southwestern Road Trip." I add to that, "with the top down under a very clear and starlit sky." After listening to this CD, I feel mentally like I have just taken a relaxing vacation.This is a great treat of a listen any time of day, but it rewards the listener well for paying attention and listening in complete darkness with no distractions. If you're a fan of Ambient music, this is undoubtedly an essential must-have."
- "kappa987"

A great treat to listen to, start to finish. Lots of beatufiul music skillfully
There are less than 10 CDs in my 500+ collection that I would listen to all the way through. This is one of them. It is easily in my top 5 favorites of all time. While it is desert-themed, fans of space music may well enjoy it too. Great combination of both intimacy and a sense of vast space. Absolutely beautiful harmonies. All melted together skillfully for a relaxing journey any time of day. I hope this artist follows up with another release...SOON!

I heard several cuts, several times on an Internet ambient music station and excitedly ordered the CD. On first listen, I was a little disappointed with the overall impact of the collection of pieces, but, in keeping with music that eventually becomes integral to my existence, by the third time through the CD, I was totally hooked and beguiled by Mr. Soon's art and vision. Nobody in his genre has done so much with base lines. They groove and twist and hang like nothing I've ever heard. Each song is unique and inventive. This CD is now in the upper pantheon of my musical heaven.

very cool!!! Very different!!!
Very different. I was quite supprised by the middle part of the CD. There are 2 or 3 songs that melt into each other, which provide a trancy journey. This album starts out with some more traditional textures and beats, then gets real mello.
The whole album is great for late night and early morning kicking back.
Thank You.
