This album has a mix of music on it. Dark, creepy piano music performed by Dominic Harlan, a score composed by Jocelyn Pook, and a few random jazzy songs by various artists.

The piano work by Harlan is very notable, especially the track “Musica Ricercata” II. It is minimalist but works very well to instill terror. I cannot hear it without thinking of dark things in shadows, or of cults worshiping some monstrous thing from the Cthulhu mythos. This track is my favorite on the whole album.

The score by Pook is well done. “The Dream” is a suspense track with a high amount of tension, not an ambience with a subtle hint of something. “The Masked Ball” is a little less tense but is accompanied by creepy singing that sounds like chanting. This track especially compliments the mood of “Musica Ricercata” by providing another take on the evil cultist mood. “Migrations” has a very exotic Middle Eastern feel to it.
