Ten years on from Into the Light, we are taken back into the world of The Light Dreams’ début album. Catchy riffs and other worldly atmospheres make up a rich musical landscape, again rounded off with fantastic cover art by David A. Hardy.

“Into the Light was my first fully-fledged album and a special project for me. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, I decided to make a follow-up album that returned to similar moods and imagery; like returning to your favourite place after a long time.”


The light will always draw us back, speaking to us from behind the veil of our everyday existence. Our journey in this album takes us through a range of experiences that life offers to us, and provides encounters with the strange – sometimes mystical – world that lies beyond the mundane.

We need direction in order to make sense of a sometimes confusing reality. At times, we may be puzzled by what we see – at others, we may feel overwhelmed by a sense of the grandeur of things unknown. But in all cases we strive to understand our lives and give them meaning.

This voyage of discovery is something we must all undertake as events unfold around us, and the wonder of this music may bring us a little closer to achieving that goal. The light is with us, pulling us towards it. Experience it. Interpret it for yourself.
