Shadows Between the Sky is so good. My heart skipped listening to “Sled Ride”, and a little piece melted clean off during “Sunken Statue”. Shadows Between the Sky is a work of ambience and slow emotion. The quality of recording and mastering is superb, with all the detail of a cymbal tap or plectrum pluck preserved in impressive clarity.
