Hicksville is a wonderful journey through sound. If you like Shpongle, you ought to listen to this as well. The album gets its grip with its ethnic direction and Celtic ambiance. The mysterious atmosphere plays a role here, like on the fantastic Jade Garden and Khatmandu - one of the peaks of the album. The wand of Simon Posford is felt throughout the production.
Celtic Cross was defined as "distinctly atmospheric, a journey of enlightenment, the definitive navigational map for inner and outer cosmic exploration". In order to appreciate this CD, you better listen in a high quality sound system - maximum pleasure guaranteed..!
