059/100 - "Ruebke" by Islands of Light
"Ruebke" by Islands of Light is a mystery to me ... I have no idea how it is on my iPod Classic but I am glad it is there.
It is an album filled with wonder ... the kind of wonder that can only be created with a piano and an ear for atmospheric ambience: delightfully delicate soundscapes that emphasise melody, pieces where substance wins out over style; that's not to say Islands of Light don't have style, they do, it is simply understated like the music they create.
I love serendipity and I get pleasure in finding sublime treasures like “Ruebke”.
It turns out I picked up this album based on Brian Housman's recommendation. Thanks Brian!
