I'll never doubt a solo Ceephax album again. Having played this record several times after release day, I initially misjudged it for not doing what I wanted it to do. Truth is, this album has a pace that doesn't care what you demand. Now of a different mood, I've adjusted to the slower subtleties and find myself bathing in the lovely, mellow melodies. Introspective, buoyant acid... it should be mandatory listening in my old-age home decades from now, and I DO mean that respectfully. Naked Soul
