Rippling keyboards command one's attention, but it's the interplay of all---keyboards, bass, drums, assorted percussion and a few effects---that creates a hypnotic blend, a jazz mind-meld. Nuance and subtlety play a key part too, for the phrasing and spacing add to the aural tapestry.
Although the songs cover a variety of tempos and employ distinct ideas, the music, save for a strange, unlisted bonus track, is never strained or discordant, though full of energy and vibrancy.
Someone who have listened to only thier studio-making cds should go to thier concert or listen to thier live on the radio (on a belgian radio, i listened the live in which E.S.T collaborated with Pat Metheny) or good live album EST 95. While in this cd there is little space of improvisation, Esbjorn's sence of piano improv highlighted more on thier lives is mezmerizing and moving. He is an original voice on the scene.
