With some peculiar characteristics of its own, Reflection in Time is a more pure and lucid album, that envisions a clarifying pattern to its own monumental ambitions. Nevertheless, the album is undoubtedly recommended to audiences who are really passionate about the genre. Given the organic nature of its prevalent sonorous anatomy, and the pure sensitive alignment of its musical proposition, some sense of monotony is inevitable throughout the album. Interesting also as a purely ambient musical piece, propitious for elevators, offices or factories waiting rooms, Reflection in Time converts the sinuous purity of sound into a more elevated distraction, sometimes getting close to perfect for brief moments of relaxation. Despite the predictable nature of the work, there is a spontaneous synergy that easily flows into the rhythm, converging through a realm of harmonious coherence that celebrates the confident platitude of a creative energy that adheres strictly to a platform of sound destined to revive the main principles of a minimalist genre, that has very strict program of rules and sensibilities.
Despite the lack of innovation, Reflection in Time maintains itself as an ardent exponent of the genre, being faithful to the general principles of ambient music, without being merely a generic or derivative work. While the record may not appear too sublime nor aggrandizing to a certain degree, it obviously has its merits, specially taking into consideration how profoundly the artist inserted himself into the genre, being subtle, discreet and evasive, but exceedingly creative, original and balanced at the same time, having sculpted a record that is brilliant in practical and technical aspects as well. Certainly, Reflection in Time deserves to be considered a lesson in ambient music.
While the album highlights itself more for its technical brilliance, there is great music on it. But evidently, the record will be deeply appreciated only by audiences who are already profoundly familiarized with the genre.
