A soundtrack for the apocalypse, the theme song for a dystopian republic, London-based Freeman conjures images of a bleak and foreboding world with his ambient drones, whirling wind vacuums, and clattering chimes. He does a good job of invoking the spirit of Terry Riley on "The Might of Angels" where an Om-like cello drifts in and out as a single violin note lingers, as if on the precipice of a storm that never quite materializes. There is a lot to explore here but it's going to take patience on the listener's part.

Buy this record if you want to ponder the day with the moon in the sky.
