From former King Crimson violinist & Keyboard player comes this album with a mixed bag of tricks, with ambient sequences, progressive leanings and electronic pop like fare.
A minimalistic musical venture, with guest vocal artist´s of both male and female species, cinematic at places, others dreamlike and daring.
I can best describe it as an album that you will enjoy a late sunday afternoon, while the rain is pouring down outside, you sitting comfy in your favorite chair with a glass of whisky or a hot cup of coco, lights dimmed, eyes closed !
There are a few tracks here I dislike, for the "simple" pop´ish electronics and trickery that does nothing for me, no I shall not mention and/or specify, one mans gold could be another mans..ahem..crap and vice versa!
What I will mention are those tracks I really liked and found very interesting.
Here goes: "Arc En Ciel part 2"... a very poetic instrumental with brilliant violin play! Or the beautiful " Cold Blue Sky" with amazingly wonderful carresing vocals by Beth Hirsh. Also a track like "Counting All The Stars" with fine vocals from Brendan Staunton and some wonderful mellotron.
"For Someone" has a very cinematic feel, you will get a lot of images in your minds theater (closed eyes recommended) during this great tune!
An acquired taste for sure, but for some of you this could be magic!
