  • What makes this release a definite must-have is the same reason why you visit festivals with sounds, music and sound art. Even if you don't know all this artists or there is a track you maybe don't like at the beginning, it fits the release as a whole. Exploration of artistic depths and differences, very well combined by 'His Masters Drone', Stefan Knappe.

  • It's is definitely worth the download, but the whole thing should have been recorded better. The choking frequencies on certain moments ruin the flow and atmosphere. It has its charm in some noise music, and certainly when it's recorded on tape, but with a probably laptop-based recording it's a big 'no'.

  • The main style under which this should be categorized is a mixture between ethnic, ethereal, ritual, drone and ambient. If you are interested in the aforementioned styles, and are still missing a bit of ethnic, ethereal and ritual music in your collection, this is a great release to get.

  • To make a long story short, an absolute 'Do Try This At Home' for ambient lovers who don't mind the progressive use of guitar and other melodic instruments, and who do know where and how ambient music started.

  • There are no real dull moments and the structures and modulations are impressive enough to listen to the whole composition. But if you reach the end, there is a good chance you will wonder if that was it.

  •  "24" is the fourth release by Mars Wellink as (ad)VANCE(d) and one he can be very proud of. The cover and vinyl are wonderful and the music triggers the brain over and over again.

  • The big question is if the release has the quality you expect, and the answer is that it even goes beyond your expectation. On two CDs a very good overview is created with several hard-to-find tracks as well as never-before-released outtakes from live performances.

  • "Acid Landscapes" is a well thought of title and it does fit a symbiosis between a more soundscape-like approach of equipment used for acid. But, probably because it's been compiled of 4 different releases which were created over 7 years, the whole lacks a bit of coherence which would have made the release stronger.
