"The West Lighthouse is not so Far" is the fourth album recorded by Astrid. All of the titles of pieces are based on lighthouses' names. Compositions are based on creating impressive ambient soundscapes fulfilled with little sparkling details and ornaments fluently moving into disturbing moments when strong bassline meets repetitive percussions. Musicians show how thin is the border between harmless calm and heavy wave of noisy guitar storm."-Monotype
