Compared to Tubular Bells, Ommadawn, Incantations, and Amarok, this cd is quite uninspired. Its as if Mike wrote this stuff the weekend before it was due. Despite 2 good tracks (Angelique and Our Father), the "light" cd pushes the whole "relaxed" thing too far, if Mike can write an hour long piece (Amarok) without making it boring, why can't he do this with a 4 minute song? The "shade" cd is more generic new wave/trance crap, why is this legendary artist using an amateur program like Fruity Loops for his music?
The u-myx idea is cool, but you're limited to choosing which tracks are on/off and their volume. It's not much of a mix if you can't change the position of certain tracks in the song, so the u-myx thing is pretty much useless for real mixing.
