5 stars It is easy to get involved in Epignosis' Still the Waters right from the start. Robert takes his time with his compositions, yet the music is far from boring. The way Robert layers the various instruments that he chooses to use is quite unique and definitely intriguing. Even as the songs are approximately eight and twenty minutes in length, my attention is never lost as the music progresses smoothly while the individual parts of the songs work together nicely to create beautiful compositions. The songs are complex enough to keep your attention throughout, yet simple enough to easily enjoy, allowing yourself to get emotionally involved.

For the most part, I believe that Robert's vocals were done well. There are a few places where his voice seems a bit strained as though he is reaching for the note he is singing. The effects he uses on his voice are a great contribution the to songs. Compared to the amount of instrumental time, the lyrics are few, but powerful. Robert sings about the truths of his faith which are very inspirational, but never forced upon the listener.

Looking at the instrumentals and vocals separately, I would give the instrumental portion a 5/5 and the vocals portion a 4/5. However, to rate Epignosis' Still the Waters as a complete piece of music, I offer it a 5/5. It is comprised of five beautiful works of art.
