Review
Jürjendal´s instrumental (mostly) music is beautiful and his musicianship excellent! It is in the region of fusion/ cinematic/ ambient . Jürjendal has participated on many bands and recordings especially his personal production with so many titles (to numerous to mention) both solo, duo´s, trio etc. he have created music for many years now - incl. cinema scores, children´s tunes etc. he have studied Robert Fripp´s Guitar Craft and plays: Guitar, touch guitar, classical guitar, electronics, baglama, percussion, ektara & does vocals. He has help from what I assume is family members (all bearing the surname Jürjendal) on: Cello, harpsichord and voice.

As indicated earlier the music herein is often beautiful, laidback and has a tendency to ewoke pictures on your inner cinema, which I really like..since I myself is a very visual person. Jürjendal also uses loop for returning themes..only to build upon the themes that again returns "From Dream Forests To Spring" is a very good example .

Another approach to this album...could be..that it resemblances Ian Akkermans (yes he of Focus) more folk/traditional albums like "Tabernakel"...and also I am reminded of Pat Metheny´s softer tunes back in the day.

There´s no doubt as to this musicians talent and the volume of his works speaks for itself.

It is an acquired taste though but if you liked some of the sentences abowe, then give a listen why dont you?!

For those of you whom like hard, fast and heavier prog/fusion with screaming guitars and thundering drums and the likes, go seek elsewhere!

BALM OF LIGHT indeed!!

That's what they say about us...

All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
