Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces

Steve Roach


Steve Roach’s extensive series of albums regularly fill up a CD’s worth of music but 2003’s Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces, in its final compiled form drawing on earlier partial releases, reaches a notable height even for him in its filled-to-the-brim four CD sprawl. It’s an earned effort, though: across the first three CDs of a series of individual songs and concluding with the over-an-hour-long “Piece of Infinity,” Mystic Chords showcases Roach’s sense of gentle warmth offset with a hint of his more mysterious, alien-tone side, music to truly get lost within.
