amatya At some point in your life you see how the world works. How the people are, what good or bad they bring and how you choose to fit in it. Or you don't. We live in an age that I dislike, and I would rather live somewhere in the future.

This kind of music takes my awareness of our worlds current state away and I feel that I am where I want me to be. Eventhough I can only hear it and not see it.

I'm not trying to offend others by saying how I feel, it's just my own opinion. Who knows, maybe others would understand what I mean.

I definitely recommend this album/music to anyone who can enjoy laying back and thinking about pretty much everything while listening.


William Wordsworth was a poet who wrote of an enigmatic young woman who died at an early age. Her name was Lucy.

Slumber is an album of 8 songs (and an epilogue) - each one named after a line of the 5th poem of the "Lucy" series:

A slumber did my spirit seal
I had no human fears
She seem'd a thing that could not feel
The touch of earthly years
No motion has she now, no force
She neither hears nor sees
Roll'd round in earth's diurnal course
With rocks, and stones, and trees

Filled with haunting soundscapes and melancholy melodies, Slumber presents a musical mourning of the long lost Lucy.
