Where ambient music makes a fine accompaniment for meditation or an evening of calm, even a long journey for many of us, it occasionally lacks that humanity or soul to give it a little more meaning and intention. In this case, you get the best of both worlds.

The unpredictability starts to line up with your own emotional reactions to it. Rather than just listening, you’re involved – your emotions tumble down the very same rabbit hole as the music.
The raw energy and vibrancy of real rock and roll is well and truly due a comeback right about now; The Former Knights are undoubtedly working on that for all of us.
