Album Review

Hilary Stagg's Edge of Forever tones down the supporting instrumentation that colored 1991's Dream Spiral, accenting his trademark electric harp sound with understated keyboards and the occasional flute. It's a typically soothing set, withStagg's harp evoking images of the concentric rings of a water droplet, or a slow-motion sky ride through a bank of cumulus clouds.
