Prog Reviewer
2 stars (First written review.) This one is more in the not-so-impressed category of these PA/library spottings of mine. I picked the album hastily, pleased to see that it's in the ECM label (my fave what comes to modern melancholic jazz especially from the Nordic countries). Next I saw that there's only guitars, percussion, percussion, percussion and percussion, and only titles like 'Lupra', 'Lochana' or 'Red/ Black/ Burning Temple', I began to doubt. Yeah, a narrow attitude I should be ashamed of. But I gave it a spin with as open ears as possible. At least the titles couldn't be more in sync with the music. There is a clear sense of Eastern mysticism made by multiple percussion. But it was something I'm not interested to form a closer relationship with. You see, it gets very tiring and monotonous, too distant, cold and unfamiliar to get really into. But if that combination (g+perc) and the Eastern feel attracts you, you might find this album great.
