Berkdrums I kinda forgot how incredible this album is... got the cd years ago and now collecting as much as possible on my BC-app... this album resonates deeply in my soul... it contains all elements that reflect why I’m such a huge Roach-fan. I also taste some Patrick O’Hearn elements which I also respect highly.. this is absolutely a must-have...

TenserD Steve Roach and Neocron addicted... so the whole album is a musthave! Thx for such a great atmo in a game. Favorite track: Aftermath.
Projectdan thumbnail
Projectdan This is my favourite album of his, I just love how ambiguous it is. It also remind me of Brian Eno or Harold Budd in places, I just love the time this came from and it seems to capture something from that period that can't be channelled anymore. Favorite track: The Unreachable Place (Again).

TRUTH & BEAUTY is a perfect blend of Steve's rich atmospheric and tribal ambient infused work.
Though the 10 tracks were recorded over an 11-year period in different environments they work remarkably well together as a whole. Five of the tracks are previously unreleased covering sessions from DREAMTIME RETURN, the Suspended Memories collaboration with Suso Saiz on guitar, STORMWARNING and ARTIFACTS. Complementing those pieces are 5 tracks recorded specifically for now out-of-print international compilations. They work together to create a connected storyline, like the soundtrack for an imaginary film. TRUTH & BEAUTY is an exploration into the enduring power and depth of Steve Roach's artistic vision.
