3 stars A very much welcome change of direction.

Farzad Golpaygani from Iran (currently in exile in Turkey) first three albums was typical guitar hero albums where he proved he is an excellent electric guitarist which preferred to show of instead of writing good, original stuff.

On this, his fourth album, he has changed style completely. Gone is the cascades of electric guitars and in comes acoustic Persian (??) folk music with a lot of other worlds drawn in too. The new style reminds me a lot about Flairck and that is both an observation and a compliment. And Farzad Golpaygani has also written some good songs to wrap around his new style too.

Farzad Golpaygani is still proving that he is an excellent musicians. But this time in a much more understated, subtle manner which suits him better, me thinks. In short, this album is his best album by many country miles and well worth checking out if Flairck and/or prog folk with eastern influences is your cup of tea. Please give us more of this stuff, Farzad Golpaygani.

3.5 stars
