This is a superb ambient album above par in its genre! You have beautiful environmental soundscapes accompanied by perfectly chosen synth sounds to accompany the zen like ebb and flow of the nature sounds. Ive only owned and listened to his cd Green on the now defunct Sona Gaia label here in the US. It was the ONLY Yoshimura album available on cd and not until the 00's did I realize his catalog was much deeper. This ones a little more developed with some tracks almost having a lite trance like quality with baselines etc but nowhere does it remotely come to dance music its just a bit more hypnotic!
 I hope one day some brave label will re-release his catalog on CD for the rest of the world to rediscover.
