The Dream Circle
by Phil Derby, Dreams Word

What do you call a disc that is one 73-minute song that changes almost imperceptibly over its duration? I call it pure Steve Roach. Originally a 1994 limited edition of 2500 signed copies, it has now been reissued. This is well worth pursuing, especially for fans of DREAMTIME RETURN. This is Steve Roach at his organic best. The music breathes in and out slowly, totally draining your body of any tension or stress. There is no didjeridoo, but plenty of deep cavernous echoes, shimmering rain sticks, chirping sounds, and deep, rich bass.

There truly is almost no discernible change in the music at all over the course of the 73 minutes, so if you are looking for something that is more complex, look somewhere else. If, on the other hand, you are searching for the perfect music to take your mind and body on a journey to new corners of the universe, look no further. This is perhaps the most perfect relaxation and / or meditation music I have had the pleasure to listen to. I instinctively shift into slowly, deeper breathing, even as I type the words to this review while I listen. What is wonderful about THE DREAM CIRCLE is that it is very functional, either as an aid to reduce stress, or to focus energy for reading or intense study, or simply as great background music. Highly recommended.

Reviewed by Dreams Word, Exposé

Since it sold out a few years ago, the requests and feedback from listeners and musicians have shown this piece to be the most admired infinite repeat soundworld created by Steve so far. THE DREAM CIRCLE was first released in 1994 as a signed and numbered DigiPak, limited to 2500 copies. After it sold out, word continued to spread and the requests turned into demands. Through the inspiration of listener feedback, THE DREAM CIRCLE has been re-released on the Timeroom Editions series. This is not a limited release. It comes in a jewel case, not signed or numbered. Now is your chance to feel the slow heat of the dream circle.
