8/10 Jack Customer review, 23rd December 2015
It's a lovely album. The Secret Chiefs 3 "sub-band" Ishraqiyun provides the Middle-Eastern / Indian grooves which define the band for many fans. Loyal SC3 fans will recognise most of the tracks: The 15, The 7, and Spiritus Intelligentiae: Jophiel (previously known as "Fast") have been featured in SC3 concerts for years, and it's great to finally have definitive studio-quality versions of these songs. Despite being released as a single a few years ago, Saptarshi's inclusion as the closing track is a welcome and relevant addition.
