With this CD you get an 80 page poetry book written by Cyrnai with some nice artwork to go along with it. This is a nice package if you are into this kind of thing. I myself only care about the music. Well, I am personally not that impressed with it. The music is very ambient and spacey with a mystical sci-fi vibe to it. It plays at a medium pace keeping it from putting you to sleep, but it's still not that exciting or creative. I really expected some beautiful female singing to be included in these songs, but instead Cyrnai basically just recorded various spoken word and altered it and added it into her music. So instead of her singing with melody and harmony, she basically just talks. This makes the songs drag along. They are boring. The music doesn't change a lot from track to track. It's layered with a lot of different sound effects and beautiful synth melodies, but I still find it rather dull and drab without ever pulling me in. There are a lot more instrumentals than I expected here as well. While the talking voice isn't the greatest, it does add something to the songs that seems to be lacking when there isn't any vocals at all. There is not a lot of variety in the music here. I couldn't really tell when one song had ended and another had begun. There is an overall soft and beautiful mood to this music that some people might find appealing. I am sure that artistic people into poetry and spoken word will love it.
