Alex Alexander A perfect conceptual companion to Chaos Monsters. Whereas CM is a very intense emotional journey, Compass is very calming and relaxing--a tool to keep you from becoming too overwhelmed during your voyage. And it's a beautifully lush, organic ambient/drone work in its own right, too.

Compass is the companion release to NAAL's release Chaos Monsters. Together these two EPs tell an adventure story of love and loss, life and death, and hope at the chance that things might get better.
