Spirit of Change - A Review by

TALES FROM THE INCANTINA
His countenance may be severe, but Richard Bone's disc of ambient music is as sweet as can be. Inspired by the spiritual philosophies of the ancient Toltec people, one of whom once wrote, "I am made of light, I am made of stars," Bone has fashioned eleven synthesized tracks that will leave you feeling good, better and best.
If you find such titles as "Inevitable Zen," "Corazon del Cielo," "Dzibana," and "The Fifth Riddle" enigmatic, contemplate this teaser from the website: "The gods of the ancient Toltecs were at once, benevolent and unforgiving. These elegant idols demanded sacrifice and passion, prayer and submission. In return they promised a light everlasting, a night of eternal stars and a dreamtime of immeasurable wonder." Though the words read like a preface to an S/M excursion, Bone's lovely Tales are gentle, transporting, and perfect for background or dreamtime.
