She shifts between intimate personal reflections and extensive ambient meditations with the elegance of tides swelling and settling. The guiding lights in the sky above her are the likes of Cat Power, Grouper, and Stars of the Lid, but this album is all about Walker’s own quiet exposure of her soul to the natural world.

I thought the ambient moments were lovely but considering how I enjoyed the more vocal portion of the album, I thought they went on for so long. I'm saying this even as a huge ambient listener. The album title is also definitely fitting because of how spiritual this album can be.

Not much going on with this record.

This album is a living and breathing entity. It’s truly beautiful. It gives you a warm fuzzy feeling through it’s lovely spaciousness. It’s so mysterious and intriguing, the more you open up to it, the more it reveals. Unfortunately, the balance of ambient tracks and sung tracks isn’t quite right in the second half of the album.
