The Long Walk Home.
You may remember the story how I posted a topic typing "Have I Sinned?" about a track by Zekazy (I said the artist name sounded similar to Skazi and that I liked the track, hence wondered if I liked a Skazi track and hence sinning) on the CD A Walk Through Neptune's Garden from the label that Jikkenteki is working at.
Anyway, some argument started about downloading music and for some reason Jikkenteki himself told me that he would send me the CD. Free of charge. Now a few weeks passed and he said that he had forgotten to send it and that he would also send me his new CD (The one that this topic is about) aswell as A Walk Through Neptunes Garden. I was very happily surprised about this, as I thought he might have forgotten all about me.
Anyway, the albums arrived a week or so ago and I've listened to them... I had already listened much to the Walk Through Neptune's Garden CD so I chose one of the other two CDs, the first of the two-CD album. I really put an effort into listening to it too (I was lying down on the couch with my eyes closed, not sleeping, just taking in the music better) and it really moved me. That was the first CD of the two, the chillout CD. It was a really amazing experience and something that I really had never experienced before.
This is right now my favourite CD. Maybe because of the background, but also because of the great voyage it sent me on the first time I listened to it. I can really recommend it, and I will be looking with great interest at the future releases from Par-2. Maybe I will even buy a CD or two.
I also read in the booklet that this album has a great story behind it. It's a very sad story that has inspired very very good music. I'm very sorry for your loss Jikkenteki and I hope you can move on, but you should know that I've never been this moved by music before.
This was my first hardcopy psytrance CD and I love it. Thank you Jikkenteki for all the effort that you've put into it and sending it to me. It's really unbelievable and maybe I will personally do something for you in return or maybe someone else will.
