The Road Eternal album cover
The Road Eternal

Erik Wøllo , Steve Roach


The second of Roach’s collaborations with Norwegian guitarist/ambient composer Erik Wøllo, 2011’s The Road Eternal, thanks partially to its cover art invoking the Arizona deserts he calls home, finds Roach in one of his most serenely uplifting modes, where the road in question feels like a soaring progression. The easy flow of the opening title track sets the stage beautifully, settling into a quick sequencer pulse, and further pieces like “The Next Place” and “Travel by Moonlight” convey an overall sense of motion towards a stopping point never reached.
