There are albums that grab you by the throat to never let you go again. "Mountains" by Thom Brennan is one such an album...layered ambient music filled with very interesting sequencer-patterns and great sounds...Brennan is one of the those composers who has the ability to create a haunting atmosphere which can capture the listener, making you want to listen to the music over and over again.

Just take magical pieces like "Incense And Rain" and "Habu Valley" and you'll know what I mean. The last track contains a sequence surrounded by strings and bell-tones and is something more than 10 minutes long but it is so beautiful that, in my case, it may last for the whole album.

This album really opened my eyes (and ears) and belongs to the top recordings of electronic music.
