"When Noumena was released, critics and audiences were polarized. It would seem that 'Streets' and 'Nozomi' -- less than twenty minutes of music combined -- had provided enough for The Drift to already have expectations to live up to, whether they liked it or not. At times glacially paced, Noumena ventured into the darker, lonelier regions of jazz, dub, and ambient rock, where In A Silent Way and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly coexist in sinister harmony. The trumpet freak-outs and Beefheart-inspired guitar stabs were fondly missed, while the increased attention paid to atmosphere was applauded. What critics and most fans didn't get to hear were the two extra tracks included only on the 2LP vinyl edition of Noumena (including, ironically, the title track from the album). These two tracks sprawled to lengths and depths only alluded to on their debut 12". Ceiling Sky collects these previously rare, vinyl-only tracks onto CD for the first time. In addition, the limited edition (rmxs) 12" released earlier this year -- featuring remixes by Four Tet and Sybarite -- is included to complete the collection."
