From Here to Tranquility (Silent Records)
This ambient compilation will send you where the title promises. Within this collection of ambient music from certain talented San Francisco artists, the first track, "Sonic Alter," will drop you seaside; the second, "H2O," will take you under. After this brief aquatic experience, you are jettisoned to space with "2 Pro1," by Space Time Continuum. This one is guaranteed to send shivers up your spine. Psychic TV caboose the compilation with "Completion 4A": The eerie poem winding throughout this track will cling like a mist within your mind.
