You should definitely get Justin Bennett's "Cityscape" (Staalplaat). It's
freaking brilliant! I had high expectations for this one, and I think every
requirement has been met. There are some incredible soundscapes on this CD,
and in addition the CD-cover is perhaps the most original cover ever
(although it sort of makes the idea of a CD-rack a thing of the past).
Thunderstorms, church bells, beautiful & rhythmic rain-drops,
echo-chamberings from where?-I-don't-know. It's so good, and it's so well
crafted/constructed/structured. Highly recommended, in other words.
