Having had a while to digest this gargantuan set it's become a stand out record in my collection. The sheer duration of it, as well as the heavy-set rhythms, make it a welcome background to writing or painting. I can imagine this being a great accompaniment to almost any kind of work. Though it's not purely functional music! The cascading ambience it's drenched in is detailed enough to stand up to close listening too. It also shines at both quiet and loud volumes. A very versatile set. Awesome.
