I didn't think that it was a terrible album, in fact it was pretty damn good for an ambience album--a genre that I don't normally get into. There were a few songs that ended up lulling me to sleep and one or two of them that I actually enjoyed. It was not an album that quite appealed to my tastes, though, so I'm probably quite biased.

I enjoyed it a lot. It set an excellent atmosphere to drive around to on a nice day. I can't say that there were any songs that stood out (most just blended together as they do on most ambient albums), but I have been getting into this genre more lately and I think it makes a good addition to my library.

Maybe I didn't like it as much as you guys because I listened to it in a focused state, not as background or scenic music.

Yeah, I liked it quite a lot. I haven't listened to it more than once, but one track made it to my ipod (I think it's the one Bob mentioned) and I have listened to a few randomly on last.fm shuffle. Always enjoy the ambient feel, even if it doesn't suit my situation.

I just got around to this yesterday, though I was a bit distracted with site issues and didn't pay the most attention. It's probably for the best then that it was an ambient sort of album. I thought it was gorgeous.

I liked it quite a bit. It had to grow on me a bit, but when it did, I realized it's beauty.
