Mystified's third Rain album is a bright, languid, minimalistic composition which conveys a sense of self-sufficient solitude. Piano keyboard notes and chords are plucked from space and reverberate lightly in the mind. Time and space fall into the lacunae between notes, and all that remains is you at peace.

Ruhig und anderes als viele andere Veröffentlichungen von Mystified nicht dröhnend. Die einzeln Noten und Akkorde finde ich doch eher anstrengend über eine Dauer von 70 Minuten und sind nun nicht so herausragend interessant. Auf der anderen Seite hat es schon irgendwas, so daß ich nicht generell von einem Download abrate.
Single notes, a few chords, delicately applied effects, and silence allow this minimal ambient composition to take on the character of a gentle rain shower on a warm summer afternoon. Very relaxing and mediative ambience. I discovered especially pleasing sounds when I inadvertenly played this on my cd-player and media player simultaneously and just slightly out of sync.
