CD Review – Weightless (Ambient Transmissions, Vol. 2), by Marconi Union

The Manchester, England, trio of Jamie Crossley, Richard Talbot, and Duncan Meadows returns with an album of cool atmospherics perfect for tranquil reflection and cathartic unwinding.

The record is really one long chill called Weightless, divided into six parts. The music, apparently composed and performed on keyboards and synthesizers, does give the titular impression of zero gravity, making this an eclectic and enlightening exercise in sonic space as well as an appropriately quiet cosmic soundtrack.

This CD rightly takes it place alongside other genre classics such as The Shimmering Land by Meg Bowles, plus the work of past Marconi Union collaborator and new age legend Brian Eno.
