Review by admireArt
3 stars Sadly not all rainbows end up over a bowl of gold.

A slow and imperceptible departure towards a more cosmic environment, opposite to his quiet unimpressive, not only becase "What We Left Behind" (released a couple of months before) is totally inclined into the New Age like earthly musical environments but because it was scarce of "New" music composition creativeness (in that styling), this "Vestiges", 2016, as mentioned, sets on to more Space music grounds with some heavy earthly touches meeting in the middle of this crossroad and somehow turning back in time to his first releases in a more sophisticated way.

Once I wrote in these Robert Rich reviews that I found a certain thinness in his music compositions which if abused tended to lead nowhere. Well, that peculiar quality overshadows, if not alone in length and time, also in creativity some better suited tracks on this one.

Ironically, which makes these reviews so subjective, the highly praised 16 minutes "Anchorless on Quiet Tide" published among his followers does not tick my bomb. Nevertheless the other 15+ minutes long track "Obscured by Leaf Shadows" is quiet rich and enticing.

So, taking into account that this is a 6 track release, an hour and a couple of minutes long and the before mentioned tracks take off half of the content and a couple of other tracks are just too thin, sums (or substracts) up or down for a 3 out of 6 effort, which of course derives into a decent, far from magnificent, ***3 PA stars rating.
