2 stars A mixed bag of acoustic classical music and symphonic synth coloured music. Arboretum suite is an elaborate piece starting acoustically and moving to a keyboard-drive final part.

"Earth man" is another highlight with dominant synths, not unsimilar to the 1984 album.

"Down over the lake" offers acoustic strumming which is not varied and drum box add to being quite monotonous - at the same time, the track clocks at over 10 minutes.

"Bouncer" features classical guitar with changed colour and terrible drum pattern that contradicts baroque music. "Eduardo" fixes the mood by focusing on an acoustic guitar duo showcasing instrumental abilities. "Heart of darkness" is the most symphonic piece with a nice sequence of synth chords.

A good but unfocused effort and not much to be found for a progressive listener.
