codythecritic1 Oh, Max, your music has moved me for three years now since your Jotun soundtrack, and I felt things couldn't get any better. Well, apparently, this album shows you at your most mature and beautiful yet, and even manages to top Collecting Sounds Around the World. While not as diverse as earlier releases, I feel that is for the better, for this album ends up feeling more consistent. A masterful release of beautiful melodies, soundscapes and wonderful creativity. Thank you. Favorite track: Paradox.

Golestan (Persian: گلستان‎ Golestȃn "The Flower Garden", "Land of Flowers")

The words that are spoken and sung throughout the album are from a nameless Hafez poem:

"To me a rose-tinted cheek from flower garden of the world is enough;
From this meadow the shade of that flying cypress is enough;

May I and the company of the deceitful folk be far!
Of all earth's treasures a cup of wine to me is enough;

The palace of paradise for good deeds is bestowed,
To me, drunken and a beggar, the cloister of Magians is enough;

Sit beside the brook and watch the passage of life,
To me the image of passage of life to watch is enough;

Look for the cash in this world and the pain,
If these don't satisfy you, to me the profit and loss is enough;

The darling is with me, why should I desire more?
The pleasure of discourse with my dear darling is enough;

For God's sake send me not to paradise from your door,
For in this world the head of your street to me is enough;

Hafiz! it is unfair to complain about the watery flow of fate,
The nature like water, and moving gazelles to you is enough;"
