1Overall Description
This is one very enjoyable slice of nicely chilled ambient, featuring unintrusive female wordless vocals and just the right balance between repetition and variation. And WHAT a mood in the opening!
 
2Creativity Description
Although nothing groundbreaking is introduced in this track, I'm still left with the feeling that this is made by a composer at the top of his game. I'm sure a bit more could have been done in this track, however; hence no top rating in this category.
 
3Arrangement Description
This song features a textbook example of tension building - a breakbeat isn't introduced until halfway through the track, and yet a wonderful attention to detail ensures that the calmer first half never loses its appeal.
 
4Sound Quality Description
Some high-frequency artifacts are present in the mix due to the composer's choice of 128k mp3 encoding; a bit rate of 192k would probably suffice to fix this. I would also like to have some better stereo separation overall, as a little too much is going on in the center channel compared to the right and left ones; but that's really a minor gripe. Apart from these points, the sound is near-flawless.
 
5Does it work as a piece of music Description
Oh yes. I've listened to it several times over now, and it still sounds as fresh as on the first listen.
