Sven B. Schreiber I loved this album immediately after peeking into the first two tracks, and listened to it yesterday all day long. The music - mostly instrumental, with two exceptions - is quite varied, but whatever genre Evan Hause embraces, something ingenious results. It's hard to pick a favorite here... should I choose the offbeat RIO-oriented "Metempsychosis (Palindrome)", the catchy AOR song "Aileron", the stunning all-acoustic ballad "Winter Flower", the tricky fusion-infused "Running the Land", the mesmerizing, harmonically complex "Send for the Captain", the wonderfully polyphonic "Bal des Ardents", the amazing 70's-inspired "Temple of the Sun"... just to name a few... All of the tracks are charming in their own way. I don't use this word frequently, but here I can't but writing: a masterpiece! Favorite track: Running the Land.

Evan Hause is an award-winning composer and multi-instrumentalist who traverses and fuses experimental classical and rock music. His music has been called "spectacularly audacious" and "ingenious" [Gramophone], "from the sublime and elegant to bawdy and vulgar" [American Record Guide], "delightful and clever" [Records International], "astounding" [The Denver Post], "compelling" [The New York Times], and "fresh and dramatic" [Opera News]. "Modern rock of the highest order, co-mingling influences too numerous to count...epic guitar licks and stellar musicianship." -Dave Mandl [World of Echo, WFMU-New Jersey] "a perfect fusion of pop and classical, requiring both exquisite precision and arena rock levels of passion" [I Care If You Listen]

In "Plastic Island Pentecost," his fourth and most ambitious prog rock solo album to date, he has created a journey by turns raucous, melancholy, and beautiful that conjures up mountains, shipwrecks, ritual dances, temples, and flying shamans. But this is no mood music - these are detailed musical excursions, replete with skilled guitar playing ("dude plays a mean guitar" - Dave Cantrell, Stereo Embers Magazine), a heavy dose of Mellotron and other classic keyboards, some stupendous guest musicians, and creative drumming.
