Albums this peripheral and ambient are rather rare in my opinion. Roach and Rich have both done albums in this vein, the latter in his early days, and of course Brian Eno did his pioneering work in the field, what is often boorishly referred to as "background music." Lightwave works as a better description, especially when you think of the effects and sounds. Greinke decided to record a full CD worth of new music in the vein of his old tape from ‘85 to go along as the second CD in this combination reissue and new release, and both are at least identical in feel, echoing sound fabrics slowly and mysteriously gliding on top of one another. Its music for the imagination, and low-key enough to make it hard to tell each track from another. Cities in Fog is an apt title for this excellent set of industrial drifts.
