The music is as unusual as it is beautiful and colorful, always holding me in rapture through its twists and turns before arriving at a completely new and welcomed destination.

The album ends with Three Views of Infinity, Hetzler's 25-minute attempt to portray the convergence and omnipresence of religions in India. In 'Morning Prayer in Sheshadripuram', Hetzler plays a mullah's chants, a harmonium improvises, and pianos play deep drones. In 'The Temples of Belur, Halebudu & Shravanabelagola', simple melodies and quiet percussion create a timeless atmosphere. The sleepy mood finally takes a turn toward liveliness in 'Mangalore to Bangalore Express'.
