4 stars Prog Folk not exactly. Eclectic without "fireworks" will suit it better.

All I know about KARI RUESLATTEN's past or present is what her mini-bio in PA depicts. And that coincidentally, with what I have reviewed lately, she is also from Norway. It is quiet surprising that this artist has recieved such a lukewarm reception here in PA! ......I guess that's one of the drawbacks of not being a "north-american" musician. Less exposure!

Anyway, as with all vocalist, if you like their timbre you are half-way in. With "PILOT" the musical language itself, is diverse from start to finish. And there is a lot of experimentation from a wide scope of angles along the way. These transitions vary in tone and mood but not to opposite directions.

No "dark" Heavy Metal stuff, but some "obscure" AV like passages. These songs contrast to its more "folksy" moments, like "Pilot" the song and "River". The other 10 songs fluctuate between "atmospherics", ethereal and minimalistic, low key "grandeur".

And all of them by themselves range in style from "prog/electronics" to "cappellas", to straight down, slow 60s Rock (without the fireworks), to Folk, to brushes of Rock/Pop and to "one on one" synths and voice structures. And best of all, a completely owned musical idiom!

Her lyrics are intillegent and unpretentious as they are intriguing. The whole effort is a pleasurable journey that makes no concessions to not any other purpose but its music. And "PILOT" as such is that.

I will keep this one, I hope you do the same. ****4 PA stars!

Thanks to ClemofNazareth for the artist addition.
