5.0 out of 5 stars Meet Hungary's ethnic music put to prog rock! June 25, 2007
My only disappointment is that I expected that Erdész Robi would produce a mainly keyboard-based album. I thought he would make such an album, since he IS the keyboard player for Solaris. Perhaps, my expectation was also swayed by having listened recently to a series of keyboard albums by Vedres Csaba. What we got, instead, is a cultural voyage trough the musical influences on the music of Hungary, put to a modernly-instrumented and executed studio album. This is a glossy, clean, and crisp production; make no mistake about it.

Some of the music I would normally consider "light-weight," bordering on pop, but the quality is superb and the thematic roots are substantial. I don't mind admitting that, at times, I got goose pimples listening to this album. After having been gone from Hungary nearly 40 years , it seems that my roots still tug at the strings of my heart.

The style of play varies from what sounds like improvisational jazz to me, to an emphatic and unmistakable flute by Attila Kollar. We hear Robi's synths, averbal vocalizations, and Márta Sebestyén (of "The English Patient" renown, but to me is better known as the principal on Deep Forest's "Boheme" and also the singer of many Transylvanian folk music albums with the Muzsikás ensemble). I bet some of you will think that you are hearing Native American's themes, a la Sacred Spirit (who are British, BTW).
