"Time, Lapsed" by Tomas Nicholas is a CD full of great instrumentals and new age songs. This collection stands out because of the soothing tones used. The layers of stringed instruments backed by calming drum patterns make this record nothing short of relaxing and refreshing. Furthermore, this album exhibits some great creativity. One song that stands out in particular is "Your Forest, Poor Forest." Its jungle-reminiscent tones and percussion arrangements, topped with beautiful sounds of birds chirping effectively conjure the image of a distant forest. This type of imagery follows throughout the entire collection. Moreover, the production of "Time, Lapsed" finds the perfect balance between free-flowing instrumental tones and orderly percussion arrangements. All in all, this CD is a must-hear for those who enjoy the soothing sounds of great instrumental compositions.
