Reviews for fans of contemporary instrumental music
Email Me

Welcome to Melliflua - Dene Bebbington's review site that aims to keep fans of instrumental music informed about recent releases. Here you can find regular (hopefully!) reviews of releases in the EM, ambient, spacemusic, adult contemporary, and new age genres. Occasionally I will also take a more personal look at a classic album.

A note on my reviewing style. I rarely write overly negative reviews, for the simple reason that I've got better things to do than listen to bad CDs several times in order to write about them. Though I will gush about some music that really enthralls, I'm not averse to expressing criticism where it is due.

The genre classifications against each album are only meant as a rough guide to the kind of music on the album.
