4 stars Besides this being not Progressive Electronic and reviewing only the non Steven Wilson limited bonus disc release, here it goes.

Fovea Hex, "The Salt Garden 1", 2016 is closer to Prog/Folk or Crossover, tops. This mentioned to set it someplace in PA's sub-genre's universe.

Some, outside of PA's reviewers, comment that Fovea Hex is a genre itself. Quiet daringly, I will add. There is an unexplainable attribute the Irish music scene beholds, that certainly sets them apart, yet holds them up together. This I comment because, even if I try, I can not detach Fovea Hex's music from its Irish roots. Of course there is no demerit in this, yet this holds back any kind of explosive groundbreaking experimental route that could possibly emerge along its direction.

This also comes to mind because Fovea Hex's music also reminds me of Enya's at some distant point, but oddly to Canadian Loreena Mckennitt's musical environments, who may well be included in these PA's archives if measured by the same rule and who in fact is far more daring, music composition wise speaking.

Anyway, beautifully performed and composed "Salt Garden 1", 4 tracks EP, is a dream like, short ride, to some peaceful lands which inhale sorrow and by contrast also exhale light. But above all, it keeps you hooked for more, which could explain the addition of the last track "SOLACE" in an extended Steven Wilson intervened and remixed version, in the limited, 2 cd edition, "not available" package.

****4 PA "EP" stars.
