2 stars Seffer does diverge from Zeuhl pretty quickly, but will always come back to the style within his music.

I've had to piece together this album using a combo of Spotify and YouTube to listen to all the tracks.

The title track is mainly a piano/violin piece, with a little guitar thrown in. Seffer's piano is the pace setter for Horvath on violin. Its relatively high paced, and the piano riff in particular gives the track a sort of 'duel' feel to it. Half way through it fades back a little, with Horvath plucking at the strings and Seffer playing softly but still keeping up the pace. This only last for a minute though as Horvath then goes into overdrive with some rapid and sometimes jarring work. This and the piano faces away, replaced by saxophone and guitar for the last couple of minutes. Its certainly interesting, but does feel like its missing something.

Os-Gyoker probably wouldn't be out of place on an early Magma album. It's quite a dirge which doesn't get out of first gear other than some occasional frenetic and distorted violin. This contrasts quickly with Bela bacsi emlekere, which although with plenty of jarring notes is relatively chirpy and upbeat to start with. Again, strong interplay between piano and violin as it goes back to the style of the first track. The remaining three tracks are much more about the piano, and to be honest, I got a bit bored as none of them really lead anywhere. Seffer is clearly talented but for me it just doesn't hold interest for long enough.
