As beautiful as its counterpart. Oct. 21 2007
By M. Chapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As with the sister cd "After the Night Falls", this is beautiful relaxing ambient music.
I too wonder why the 2 cd's were not simply released as a single disc, given their length. This way however you do get the individual and complimentary cover art!!
Fans should also try the soundtrack to "Mysterious Skin".

East of Midnight with Budd & Guthrie Jan. 20 2008
By Winslow Bunny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Harold Budd & Robin Guthrie, a pair of legendary names in the ambient music world, created a two-album theme of music and emotions with Before The Day Breaks and After The Night Falls. Creating a kind of minimalist sound with these albums, the pair have created relaxing ambient music demonstrating that sometimes less is more, and better. Both are excellent for unwinding after work, for quiet times and perhaps even catching your breath at work. This is a definite recommendation for those who want their music a little calmer & quieter.

Chill And Wash April 6 2008
By sonyactivision - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Collaboration continues. This second installment of the binary 2007 release from Harold Budd and Robin Guthrie brings more sonic landscaping and oceanic tumult from the two arguably best figures of the genre. More sharply focused and signatory than their "After The Night Falls", this album delivers that evocative Harold Budd mysticism and Robin Guthrie's guitar washes in full effect. Fans of Marconi Union and O Yuki Conjugate must have this; fans of both Messrs. Budd and Guthrie should already have this.

Perfect Ambient music you will indulge in April 1 2008
By Manny Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I barely became aware of the release of this album in early 2008 (it came out in mid-2007). Yet, since I found out about it, it's become a fixture in my iTunes playlist. The ethereal sound of Harold Budd (one of the early creators of Ambient music along with Brian Eno) blends in impeccably with the guitar work of Robin Guthrie (of Cocteau Twins fame) to yield an album that you will indulge in time and again.

Along with the companion After The Night Falls, this is an album you will find yourself listening in times of trouble and in times of joy equally, non-intrusive music that you can work to and write to as much as you can mellow to.

Poetry and Melodies March 3 2008
By Aleksander Pieri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got this cd and "after the night fall" just 10days before the official release from Darla records and then take it with me on ipod nano to my travel in Egypt. Cant describe being 10days on a boat from Cairo to Aswan listening these two album on the Nile. Is very different from "mysterious skin" and "moon&melodies". Honestly, Mysteious skin has much more melodic and nice tracks, these dual album concept is very original but harded to listen in some parts. But worth to buy it. Hope Robin and Budd will do othere cds like this
