Sanctuary II (2016), is Multi-instrumentalist, composer, and Magenta keyboardist Rob Reed’s follow-up to the acclaimed Sanctuary (2014) album. Heavily inspired by Mike Oldfield’s classic ‘70s material, Rob single-handedly composed, produced, and mixed the album. He plays most of the instruments himself, with the help of legendary drummer Simon Phillips, recorder player Les Penning, and Tubular Bells (1974) producers Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth.
The dense, contrapuntal arrangements of Sanctuary II make it a perfect candidate for immersive audio, and Rob has delivered on that front with an incredible 5.1 surround mix. Sanctuary II is a brilliant homage that’s sure to please fans old and new.
