tonepoet One would be foolish not to put this compilation in their collection. Ambient Sleeping Pill has put together an unbelievable release that captures all elements of great ambient music (I'm not considering my submission, and choose to disregard my contribution for the sake of an honest review). Highly listenable, and a really meticulously crafted mix of diverse influences throughout that creates peaks and valleys of colors and sound. Highly recommended. Favorite track: The World as We Knew.

Brian Bourassa I am hoping that these "Sleeping Pills" will help me replace the ones I have been taking for too long now.
...at least I haven't been caught driving around at night!

This collection is a softer, almost fragile set of tracks compared to the powerful, soaring sounds of last month. I definitely recommend a lower volume setting. That said, the first four tracks are the “louder" tracks and the closing four are the gentler.

I am especially pleased to present "It Has Just Begun." This is one of the very first submissions I got back in the autumn, but I hesitated on including it because it's quite noisy. I love this track too much though so I simply had to include it here. It makes for a huge, inspiring opener (and also the perfect 7-minute power-nap soundtrack).

Leaving the grandeur of the opening credits, the first scene of this album finds us lonely on a rainy night, with the incredibly soothing guitar of "The Moon Shows Me How." Check out Tonepoet's album "So Gently We Go" for some more songs with this winning formula.

The graceful, angelic ensemble of "Orpheus" takes us high above the storm clouds… Marco takes normal tunes and masterfully morphs them into crafts of beauty. We may be releasing a collection of these soon on Stereoscenic so stay tuned.

"Make a Wish" feels like a hymn or elegy, and makes a perfect interlude between album halves. Lee performed both the remix and the original song, which appears on his album "Xeno" on Happy Puppy Records. He sent this to us unsolicited almost a year ago simply for air play. I wanted to included it here as it was the first song anyone prepared for ASP.

We are gently and peacefully ushered into the serene second half with the beautiful pianoscape of "The World As We Knew." There is an amazing sense of hope in this which we need more of.

There's a unique quality to Paul's music that I'm not sure I can put into words, but you'll pick it up as you sink into the lullaby drift of "In the Stillness of the Night." He paints scenes that are perhaps distant, wistful, friendly... definitely somewhere you'd like to be.

If we weren't there already, the deep drone of "Lights Fade in the Distance of an Empty Shoreline" takes us into a deep sleep. The winds, full of fine, shimmering snow, create a sparkling view of the shoreline. The distant bell keeps us from feeling too isolated.

We return home with the glowing, carefree "Childhood Dreams," perhaps a dream, perhaps the start of a new day. I'm very proud to be releasing this spacious track which had been lying around unreleased for far too long... now sharing the light...
