5 stars Antony has released a mesmerising new album where his musical inventiveness has risen to a whole new level. With the clever play on words with the title Mars(hmallow) and Moondust is surpassed by the cleverness of the music. A truly solo album where Antony plays every instrument himself, and yet it feels like he has his usual accompanying musical guests from his Karfagen and Sunchild albums. The cover another masterpiece by artist Igor Sokolskiy to what I interpret as the child looking into the future and leaving the past behind. And Antony reflects this in his music. This is his antidote to the worlds current covid predicament. This is a bright, uplifting album mainly in two tracks going for 20 minutes each, followed by two medley's at 7 minutes each. All the different types of keyboards are layered here as expected by Antony, showing us again his masterful playing and composing. Added to this is the wonderful guitar playing showing different textures he plays that matches and intertwines with the keyboards.

I believe also the composition is the tightest and most solid pieces of music he has recorded.

This is a stunning addition to Antony's repertoire and to anyone's music collection. Already knowing his catalogue, I am still astonished by his mastery. Play this album and get lifted out of the gloom.
