Comment: there is not much to know about this 3-track composition but it was the first issue in the discography of Luv Sound. One cannot find out even the release date of the album because it lacks this kind of information at the file/release information and at Discogs. Furthermore, I still do know nothing about Scott Hawlay and what he has produced so far. However, I guess the issue had been released sometime in 2004 while the imprint started to work. Jonathon Roberts is a contemporary composer of having obviously classical music background. The title track deserves its name where prayer-alike singing with extended chords and glistening points is accompanied by droning cello and cathedral organ-alike reflections eventually resulting in the epic peak. The next piece is Prayer: Mom and Pop (remix by the Eviscerator Reanimator) is a stoned deconstruction of the first one. It is filled with crackling noises and wobbling sonic waves to be the ambiance for a bleak sonic glimpse coming out of it. The last piece is the instrumental version of Prayer. In a word, the result is enchanting in its dark and white shadow play.
