Press reviews

HiFi News 8 out of 5

The 2xHD label might be best-known for its revivals and re-mastering of classic recordings from the past. But here we have a new release by multi-instrumentalist Robert Len, who not only played everything, but also recorded and mixed the whole thing at Studio Apollonia in Winnipeg, Canada.

Recorded in DXD, this is the latest in Len’s series of environmentally themed albums, as you may have guessed from the cover. Following on from his albums Fragile and Hope, also on 2xHD, it mixes Len’s original compositions with pieces from the likes of Rodrigo, Ravel and Paul Simon to great effect.

The pace is wistful and contemplative, and the arrangements and recordings lush. So, you tend to sink into the sound. It’s a gentle, relaxed set, but the excellent instrumental tonality and Len’s superb performances make this album a sonic treat.

    What a very pleasant surprise of an album. I suspected this would be so because the sound stage, harmonics, and activity shined even when demoing the album from the site. This is fusion at it’s best. High resolution attributes (spacious sound stage, instrument separation, precise sound) is all here. What a great, easy listen!
