4 stars Less experimental, more focused song writing, great results!

Stepping aside from his earlier electronic experimentations, Deuter shows an unknown dexterity for creative and serious musical composition. In "Ecstasy", the biggest surprise are its early rennaisance and baroque musical figures, alongside very "electronic" compositions.

Here in this work, the freshness of new found methods of expression, that are both novel and original, express themselves with a very tasteful, balance of what may seem, at close distance, as opposed goals, turns out succesfully, due to the precise dosage of creative, yet un-pretentious "classical music" structures, rendered into form with a match of "electronic" synths that instead of emulating the sound of acoustic instruments, catches their spirit with analogue synth sounds, which greatest attribute, is not faking the original acoustic sounds, but "catching" their inner "depth" and sonic timbre.

So,.. Really inspired songs that move around very "progressive" electronic pieces, counterpointed by classical music early structures, into "new age" like-environments. Pulling it off, with innovative but "focused" musical composition and a "measured" but inspired performance.

****4 "A jewel in Deuter's discography, therefore a "jewel" for Prog audiophiles, electronic and not", PA stars.
