3 stars What a skilled guitarist was hidden behind the industrial noise of his first albums. Well, it's question of tastes, but this short album, less than 35 minutes, shows the acoustic side of this artist.

The spanish classical guitar and the feathers on the cover sleeve seems to say that Senmuth has changed continent. The music on this album doesn't have the almost usual Egyptian/inidan/Far Eastern flavour. It's like he's now exploring an area between the southwest of USA and Mexico, so the native american culture.

"Deep Your Eyes" is one highlight on which the classical guitar is played quite fast. The following very short track has a sense of Krautrock for its repetitivity. Emptyness Inside is intriguing and it's only when he comes back to his usual realms like in "Waking Up For Reality" that his composing appears weaker.

All this acoustic and classical guitar on the same album is an unexpected new for Senmuth. Of course who is looking for "Experimental/Post Metal" will not find any of the two here.

The album continues as a collection of classical guitar pieces until the ending track. "Morning Shadow", even if still on North-American chords has drums and bass, so respect to the rest of the album it sounds loudly and rock.

It's a very good instrumental track, instead, still with many newage-ethnic elements.

This is a very unusual album in Senmuth's huge production. Not something that I was expecting to hear. Good for lovers of relaxing environments and acoutic guitar.
