Its a fine, cheerful welcome back to Mr Brioskj, our resident Italian artist. He creates some of the most fun and enjoyable tracks, no elements of darkness need apply. Just happy, easy listening and high power tracks of great quality and inspiration. This ep, inspired by the moods and senses of the east, features some truly excellent melodies - take the chorus in ghibli. Excellent and addictive!
Good release, but I wanted more. More, I tell you!

Ahhh, here we are. brioskj returns with a much more accessible album than his last release. There are indeed subtle eastern tones and influences to be found throughout this latest album.
"Pyramids" and "Harem" are pleasant, though the third track, "Ghibli" is far too mixed-up video game-ish. The next track, "Sinai Mount", eases up slightly, though it too has some very strange melodies and discordant accidentals.
Finally, brioskj wraps up the album sweetly by returning to the title track's pleasant mood in the final piece, "Red Sea Moon." This closer is nicely introspective and relaxing, though all too short. The best three tracks on the EP: "Pyramids", "Red Sea Moon", and "Harem". Do listen to the whole album at least once though. The sounds seem to filter in from a long ways away, wrapping you up and transporting you someplace just slightly further east . . .

I know im simply delighted to have our returning friend back. This wonderful 5 track ep is upbeat and full of airy almost magical arpeggios and pads. After reading the names of the tracks and listening to the sounds you can tell this work was definately inspired by our neighbors in the eastern worlds. From the enchanted arabic lands of "harem" to tops of the majestic "mount sinai" and finally stopping at a wonderful chillout and introspective piano interlude at "red sea moon", this ep makes for a listen again and again. Bravo.
