about

As in the Dark, All Cats are Grey, is one of the earliest significant releases of contemporary electronica by master artist, Robert Scott Thompson. Originally, composed and recorded in 1984 and originally released on cassette, it would be more than ten years before it became available on compact disc.

Many reviewers, not knowing which stylistic box to put such imaginative recording into, have labeled it New-Age. Yet, this is not typical New-Age music. As in the Dark has more of an affinity to other genres such as experimental, electronic pop and classical music. In fact, this disc is the forerunner of important RST releases such as Ginnungagap, Air Friction and Aether.

As in the Dark provides a very satisfying listening experience and is a wonderful addition to any serious collectors library of RST's work.

"Another Robert Scott Thompson CD that was too far ahead of its original time. This disc has so much going for it that it defies categorization.” - Jim Brenholts
