4 stars 4.5 in fact!

Ex Animo, H.J. Roedelius's, 2010 album, makes it quiet clear, that his music can only be rated according to his own discography. This is how extensive, mature, and masterful, Roedelius's musical composition skills, have evolved, into more than strict Prog borderlines. This music has no limits but the ones he decides on.

Wide open inspiration, intriguing and masterful performances. Rich in instrumental arrangements and details, yet balanced toward simplicity. The songwriting is so perfect, it could survive without any of its decorations, that is why it feels so amazingly spacious, but so intimate and human at the same time.

The rating is the hard thing. Not for everyone (that explains the crowd), more for people who have at least a notion of this musician's value, and even better if you are not afraid of contemporary classic/electronic composers.

****4.5, "inches away of the next PA star",stars.
