Wakey's Verdict
Little Known Trivia

Good new age album, but I would call the keyboard-sound as bad. The music is good, but at times it's too unvaried. A fan might buy it, but it won't catch a new listener's attention. I would recommend Adam's "Real World"-trilogy instead of this, because the sounds on that album are excellent. I'm not a very experienced new age-listener, so i can't really tell which one is better musically, but since the first impression of "Real World" was better than "Sunrise", I kinda stuck with it.

Suntrilogy - 3 hours of fragile, almost transparent music; sonic paintings of stunning colour, perfectly balanced ...the best experience a New Age music listener can have. The warmth of Rick's electronic arrangements, the melodic lines that are perfect in their simplicity, Rick's ability of translating into music landscapes, moods result in a brilliant ambiental work.
