Desolation Angels


“There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”

- Carl Jung


This mix is dedicated to my friend Katie. Taken from us much too soon, her bright smile and love of life will forever illuminate our world.

My condolences for the loss of your friend.
I really liked the mix, although I strongly dislike the operatic stuff. But that's just my personal taste, I loved the rest. Today, I listened to it with my MP3-Player and took a lonely walk in the forest. The melancholic atmosphere of the mix together with the loneliness and beauty of the forest really struck me. I'm downloading your newest mix right now.

Thank you.

Simon from Germany.
