3 stars Actually 3,5.

The best part of the EP is the contrast that is created between instruments especially in songs "Psalm 6" and "Prophet". Musicianship is excellent. I warmly recommend this album to those who like surprises and complexity in the music.

Album reminds me about the book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949) by Joseph Campbell, which tells universal story of the hero's travels.

EP starts with song "Psalm 6" a quite nice and rythmic start with bass and drums, then the trumpets set in. Trumpet seems to play totally different song. Nice contrast. After the start it almost turns to church music with organs. It reminded me what it was to sit in the church and listen psalms. Then the music flows quite melodically with fluit, keyboard and guitars leading the music to the end.

Second song "Trattamento 2" is melodic keyboard driven peace.

Third song "Prophet" starts again with keyboards quite serenely but when bass comes along it starts to feel more threteaning, again contrast between different instruments is quite apparent. And towards end the whole song seems to get quite disturbed. You can easily create a story in your head about the travels of a prophet.

Fourth song "Denial of access". Once more the instruments are playing different songs creating interesting tensions inside the piece.

Fifth song "Passing over". The music gets more light and cheerful here. Keyboards are leading the music forward. I find the bass playing in the background nice.

Sixth song "Trattamento 3" ends the EP. This is again keyboard leaded music.
