3 stars One can get tired after several similar albums, maybe disappointed if what you're listening to is not at the same good level of the previous one. This is what happened to me after the very good Bark Of Ra. I had to skip Evolution:Exodus as it's no longer available on Senmuth's website.

This is a lengthy album, over 70 minutes, which contains the now usual raga-metal. There are no tracks that can be considered highlights or weaknesses as the whole album flows seamlessly. Respect to the first albums the metal element appears here and there but it's almost totally replaced by the ethnic side (Egypt and India).

"Kitab Al Mayyit" and "Exerro" have something more. In particular the second is based on percussion and has a very dark flavour. It could be suitable for a SciFi or a horror movie.

Compared to Bark Of Ra, on this album Senmuth has put less effort in the melodies but this si not a bad album. In the end I don't think it's less valuable than albums like "Kami-No-Miti", "Dolgo Y Pusto" or his second work "Izoteri-ka".

As all the instrumental albums of this period of Senmuth's career, this is one of those good also for car driving. It doesn't require much attention as Internal Images and doesn't contain the heavy industrial noise or the distorted voice which can be of disturb when one listens with few attention.

It has its heavy moments like in "Hal Tarxien" or in "Ways of Researchers are Inscrutable", but they are not so heavy, specially if one is used to Senmuth's music.

A good album, after all.
