Eingya by Helios, released 01 January 2006 1. Bless This Morning Year 2. Halving the Compass 3. Dragonfly Across An Ancient Sky 4. Vargtimme 5. For Years and Years 6. Coast Off 7. Paper Tiger 8. First Dream Called Ocean 9. The Toy Garden 10. Sons of Light and Darkness 11. Emancipation. I was put at a blissful ease and began to drift away on good memories from the past. I later found every song from Eingya to be amazing.

Since Helios' Eingya is the third full-length by Boston-based composer Keith Kenniff, and the second from the same alias (Corduroy Road was released under the name Goldmund), you can't accuse him of not being serious about his work. Nor can you call him a dilettante or moonlighter: He's a Berklee College of Music grad who's served time since childhood in music lessons administered by a musically-inclined father (instead of playing outside or whatever), and his accomplishment and expertise on various instruments is gratifyingly apparent on all three of his releases. This was the lone spot on the album that didn't try to move me along to the next, which I appreciated.

Listening to this while waking in the rain was quite pleasant, and the cover art is wholesome and fits the tone of the album well. Really relaxing ambient music.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience, is not a quote you will find in this album because it is instrumental, however it invokes the same feeling of peace as you willingly drown in its breathtaking essence. Listed as organic electronic/ambience, these are terms unfamiliar to me, but I am certainly allowing the music to prove itself as such.

I emailed Keith today and he confirmed a bad pressing here. He said he hopes to repress with a different manufacturer.He has no copies to swap out, so my guess is the entire batch is affected to one degree or another.

My wife ordered a copy of this record for us last week off of Amazon. The overall CUT of the record is fantastic, BUT I would really like to know who pressed the records so that I know which press to avoid when ordering for myself in future. An insane amount of dust and paper shavings from the inner sleeve as well as (as mentioned many times in this thread) hairline scratches, some of which of are very large and can be heard. Doesn't make this album any less special to me, but whoever was in charge of storing and packaging these records needs to find a new line of work.

Hi - 3 copies bought -> 3 are dirty with a lot of audible hairlines (!!) - DISASTER - i was really happy to get this on vinyl but disappointed now in 100 % :(

I had the same problem, there was something like sand on the record.

I received my copy in the mail today and I'm very excited to have a physical copy of one of my favorite ambient albums. Missing out of the kickstarter, I got my copy from A Number of Small Things/Morr Music and wasn't sure if this was the same pressings for the kickstarter backers or not. After reading djboxmusic's review it may in fact be the same.After opening the sealed copy I noticed quite a bit of dust and sleeve shavings on the record itself. Luckily a quick dusting took care of that but the record still had quite a bit of surface noise at the beginning of side one. I decided to give it a deeper cleaning and try again but the noise persisted. It seems both side 1 and side 2 have some noise on these pressings.If you don't mind some sporadic noise throughout the play of this record the music itself sounds great. One huge difference I've noticed on my system with this record is how bright the acoustic guitar shines. Very responsive bass from the synthesizers compared to my FLAC digital files.TL:DR only get this copy if you can pick it up for cheap or REALLY want a copy of this album. I'll hold onto mine until a better one shows up... if a better one shows up.

Ok. First thing to say is I used to own the original pressing on Type. I always liked the album. I supported the Kickstarter campaign for this reissue. It duly arrived, nice mint sealed copy. I thought I'd better open it so today I did. The first thing I noticed was a fair amount of dirt and light blemishes and one light non feel-able scratch...odd for a brand new press. So I cleaned it as best I could. The quality of the sound is actually very good apart from some slight surface noise here and there...and an annoying 6 rotation click at the end of side two.So this is not a review of the music itself which I've always loved, it's just a heads up to you to not expect a 100% ideal pressing. But these things happen and I'm sure every attempt was made to try to get it perfect. I guess like the man John Peel said...'life has surface noise'. I'll probably succumb and buy another copy in pursuit of perfection.Oh...one other thing. I completely disagree with the review by 'noby'. The comment.'I can't think that someone who enjoys this can have listened to much music in their lives' is just plain arrogant. His entire review should be taken with a pinch of salt. Maybe a good ear waxing will help.
