4 stars Me El-Ma is a drummer that discover synthesizers and was part of the Israel band Atmosphera in 1976. He joined another band from Israel Zingale. Here on this third album, his music becomes more accessible but he still enjoys experiment with dissonant music and different styles of music. From the first song, we could feel the King Crimson influence but with the vocal tone of Jon Anderson. The drums patterns are complex and the Robert Fripp style of guitar make you wonder if it's not Mr. Fripp himself. "Without Further Ado" is a nice little peaceful song that starts on a lighter note with some world beat drum and violin. "Pleas as You Please" is a strange track difficult to get into. "Eternity Heart" is a beautiful exotic guitar and violin duel. The next song has a Rio/Avant-Garde style of music going in many directions and ending in a cacophonic atmosphere. This third album is a real success with an artist that took his past prog influence and adding his Israel influence to gives to this music a unique touch.
