3 stars The album is a return to the familiar territory of acoustic/classical guitar world complemented with a few synthesizer tracks.

"Sanctuary" harkens back to the days of vocal tracks from the late 70's, tender piano notes and AP's voice augmented by guitar are still a clever combination.

"La Dolorosa" is a fantastic classical piee of music where two guitars communicate. Acoustic guitars dominate the "New England" piece and show mastership in the third piece.

"Last Goodbyes" is one of the catchiest AP's numbers supported by simple melody and simple piano lines.

"Sunrise and sea monsters" has a jazz-latin feeling to it with saxophone and exotic percussions. "If I could tell you" is a short piece unusually led by a saxophone.

"Now they've all gone" is a name of a heart-broken piano ballad.

This is one of the better "Private parts and pieces" albums by AP and won't bore the listener mainly due to its variety of musical styles and instruments.
