patient_ot Lighter in tone than any other vidna album I have, but this is still great. Very pretty and quite ethereal at times, considered a classic for good reason.

Brian Bourassa There is no sense fibbing about my loyalty to vidnaObmana's music.
It's difficult to find anything remotely questionable in quality. "The river of Appearance is a favorite of his recordings that include vocals. He is the reason I became interested in Ambient music.

“Eight atmospheric pieces from thie Belgian composer. At times, sparse, pretty piano lines float over shimmering walls of electronics, evoking a melancholic yet romantic feeling. At other moments, cyclical melodies interweave with each other in a slowly moving stream of sound which stirs the imagination. The talented Vidna Obmana continues to evolve and refine his music, now draping his spacey aural atmospheres with more defined melodies.” -Bryan Reesman
”Nothing in Vidna’s previous releases will prepare you for the glories, the passion, and the transcendental beauties of this release. This is a crowning achievement; in the heavenly, soaring, shimmering, meditative vein. This is a must-haverelease for all lovers of space and ambient music.” – Bill Schroeder WEFT / Epiphanies Radio.
