Mariusz Duda describes this sound as 'oriental alternative'. Not sure, but with a debut album as good as this, you can call it whatever you want sir!

A comparison to Riverside will have to be necessary since just about anybody that knows about this is probably a Riverside fan. The eponymous debut would be the roots of this album. In other words, a very soft musical journey, but it lacks the electric guitar, making this a very mellow and laid back album, with strings and ambience aiding the cause. The songs remain a powerful combo of ethereal soundscapes and acoustic work that are backed by tribal rhythms. Even Mariusz's voice backs some of the songs up with chanting or pushing them forward with his growling aggression.

This was a pleasant surprise and one of the better albums released in 2008. Any fan of Riverside should definitely check this out and if you like softer Riverside should find no reason to be disappointed. I feel this to be a sister album to Riversides 2009 album 'ADHD'.
