4 stars And so, Richard is commencing on a new musical journey. I think I first came across his music about 25 years ago, when he was the driving force behind Lives & Times. In turn that became Karda Estra, and now here he is releasing an EP under his own name for the very first time. No room for the haunting vocals of Ileesha, but instead we have Richard providing vocals himself on the title cut. This is the furthest removed from KE of all the songs, as it really is a song, as opposed to an almost orchestral soundscape. But, even on the others, especially 'Chaos Theme For Clarinet' we can hear that Richard is taking a different approach, as although he has worked with Amy Fry in the past, here she has providing a far jazzier style to her clarinet than she has in the past.

Just four songs, with a total playing length of twelve minutes, it will be interesting to see what else he releases in this style, as it is an interesting progression from where he has been in the past, although with his use of acoustic guitar and arrangements it is still something that will appeal to fans of his other works
