    Brian Eno was quoted recently as saying "the path of least resistance for anyone with a load of sound - making tools is to keep making more sounds. The path of discipline is to say: let's see how few we can get away with."

    That's certainly some excellent advice for anyone making ambient music, and "Eden" is an excellent example of that principle being put into practice. Languid, textural phrases on piano and sustained electric guitar are given vast amounts of space in which to breathe, while minimal use of percussion, bass, synthesizer washes and found sound provide additional color and depth.

    Johnny Nash's music largely bypasses the BPM and loop-based techniques of so much ambient music since the 90s, in favor of returning to the more relaxed, loose, breathe and release vibe of first-wave ambient artists. The Budd/Guthrie influences from his first two albums are still there, but overall "Eden" has more of a fourth world feel to it, recalling the works of John Hassell, O Yuki Conjugate, and Another Fine Day.
