The warrior rode upon the steed of light
into the ruins of his mind,
seeking solace from the world.
There the broken timbres of his life lay bare,
as ghostly mortals danced their shadow song.
– Jō Mon Kō Jun

This is beyond all unreasonable doubt one of the best albums I ever listened to. As a painter who needs the right music to be able to work - I often prefer silence - Nachtstuecke is the kind of surrounding that is present without ever demanding attention. It works like a kind of carrier wave. I am very impressed and the next album I will add is Stephan Mathieu's 'Before Nostromo'.
