Weltraumalltag Bought the CD because of "Ghost" only but I love "Last Grains" too...reminds me of a modern version of 60s sunshine pop with jazzy arrangements and scat vocals. Cool stuff! Favorite track: Ghost.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) So Richard Wileman goes solo now... but "Karda Estra" fans, don't you worry: You can rely on Richard Wileman, as usual. It's essentially the same kind of stunning music you would have expected from a new "Karda Estra" album, some of it again with wonderful woodwind and brass arrangements. If you bought the "Ghost" EP and "Mephisto Portrait" single last year, you already know five of the 14 tracks - the remaining ones are approximately in the same vein, i.e. fantastic. Favorite track: Unmarked On Any Map.

'Loving the new solo album from Karda Estra's Richard Wileman. Thoughtful, atmospheric music with an agreeably skewed view of the world around us. Oh, & clarinets!' Sid Smith

'What is great is that you get the best of both worlds, new, stripped back sonic journeys but ones which are built on the same creative pulse, musical references and progressive world view as Karda Estra...wonderfully mercurial and beguiling.' Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture
