No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Check out these song titles; “Japanese Butterfly”, “Wardance”, “Exordiri”, “Astral Travel”, “Zanzi”, and “Middle Dream State”. Enticing? Consider Jolliffe’s track record of over 20 albums, working with Rick Davies, (pre-Supertramp), ex-Tangerine Dream member, rocking out in Steamhammer touring with Pink Floyd and The Who, rejoined T. Dream, and even recording with Ozric Tentacles’ side project, Eat Static. Curious yet? Well this is a 12 song excursion/teaser-sampler spanning Jolliffe’s music recorded from 1979 to 1996. Four tracks are of unreleased material.

A fine collection of quality visual-muisck, tranced dreamtracks, and upbeat world music executed on a wide variety of instruments invites you to vision worlds. Ample synths, acoustic and electric gear is utilized wonderfully. Even Jade Warrior’s Tony Duhig guests on weird guitar on “Middle Dream State”. If you are a T. Dream fan, like Ash Ra Tempel, enjoyed the best of new age instrumentalists — then grab this mosaic of sound. Recommended.
