4 stars A westernerŽs post-war view of the mystic East.

Short lived electronic poems, with an impending doom flavor in contrast with intriguing and beautiful passages that are as creative as rich in their melody lines, enhanced by their own briefness, the environments it proposes are intended to transport you to those mysterious lands that us westerners observers still perceive or at least still try to feel as full of wonders and yet as fragile as straw.

Its simplicity, its uncompromising closeness to Central European musical canons of "beauty" as opposed to the slight easterly canons it also approaches, its precise and minimal ALL-ELECTRONIC instrumentation, which does not minimize its creative and expansive songwriting, its original musical language and the curious fact that it was never thought to be released publicly (these songs were privately distributed on tape, last year, by Andrew Chalk himself to his friends and acquaintances, who some ended up selling their gift for a 100 euros on the web) ,add up easily for a memorable aquisition.

****4 "prog-electronic" PA stars!
