4 stars Arild Broter again succeeds in producing an excellent sympho-progressive release, which shows a remarkable stuff. Although instrumental offering, 'Directions' have enough variation between its six pieces to hold the listener's attention. There are multiple time changes while the music varies from the mellow passages to impressive riffing, allowing the individual tracks to create their own emotions and character. All compositions have interesting layers, complex passages and deep structure. The content is really accessible with lots of atmosphere. Every spin can add gentle nuances, particularly from the keyboards that ebb and flow or strong percussion mantle. Subtlety is the name of such game. Since Arild Broter has a deep love for progressive rock of the Golden 70's era (Genesis, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Camel, ELP, UK, Focus etc), influences are heavily stamped over 'Directions'. This release is dedicated to musical legends... PYMLICO is primarily a solo project, but some guest musicians display their melodic interactions. The production is clear to allow all contributions to be heard. For further information, check out the new official website.
