MikeG at Ambient Music Guide wrote: “Crossing The Trail (1998) emphasises a tribal side to the richer sound first heard on River Of Appearance. It’s more in the environmental ambience mould, laden with delicate location sounds from nature and a myriad of slow percussive grooves that suggest mysterious ritual without resorting to any kind of overstatement… Crossing The Trail is a fine example of the tribal ambient form.”

The CD is the original 1998 edition (no bonus track). We are down to the final box. They are on sale for $12. The 20th anniversary digital edition includes a bonus track, a 26-minute live recording from the 1997 Projektfest, featuring Steve Roach. Steve writes: “VidnaObmana and I collaborated on a long list of releases from the 90’s through the early 2000’s. These are still favorites among my work with other artists. This download features a 26-minute live piece we performed at Projektfest’97."
