3 stars This album is quite unique as all instruments and vocal were done by one man. The music of Steve Unruh reminds me influences from classic bands like Jethro Tull, Golden Earring and also Kevin Gilbert. The first track "Square" reminds me of that. The music is almost all based on acoustic guitar rhythm section with classical music influence. The way he plays his guitar also reminds me to the work of Paco Delucia. The second track "Song to the Sky (first part of title track)" (12:52) is unique and rich in textures even though almost all involve acoustic guitar work. The acoustic guitar work combined with cello at this track is really stunning. These first two tracks are really stunning and enjoyable.

"The Clouds from Yesterday" (2:25) features great flutework and dynamic bassline. This will remind you to Jethro Tull, obviously. His singing style at this track is very unique and energetic in style.

Overall, this SAMPLER would satisfy those of you who enjoy acoustic guitar exploration, both in mellow as well as upbeat style.

Gatot | 3/5 |
