2 stars I'm a bit lost how to describe this!

There's a certain progginess to it on some tracks but it's probably best described as world music.

One thing for sure. It's about as far away from PFM (his previous band) as you can imagine. He has clearly drawn heavily on eastern folk music. In fact parts of this remind me of a collection of Bulgarian folk music I have in my possession somewhere. It can make pretty uncomfortable listening to the Western ear accustomed to major/minor keys.

There's no doubting the technical ability from the man and his supporting musicians, but it really is not easy on the ears. A notable exception is the track "Il Blu Incommincia Davverro" which is a lovely piece featuring simply guitar and bouzouki (the latter played by Mauro).

I may be being slightly hasty in reviewing this album as it's only just come into my possession and may yet grow on me. However I sense this is one that I'll be playing only when I go through one of those phases when I want to listen to different musical idioms, or to introduce unsuspecting friends to different musical influences.

With some hesitation I have to give this a 2 star rating.
