Ataraxia - Saphir
Neo-Classic, Darkwave My first thought about this record was of a bunch of drunken Mexicans from an old western movie, but after having listened to the music for a while the music kind of groves and gets better and better.

The songs are supposed to be inspired by gardens and the magic of gardens. I think mostly of gardens seen in the night and I think that it's what the artist want the listeners to think of as well.

The best songs are "D'arc d'harpe" and "Blood of Cherries" that lifts the CD many steps. Another thing that makes me like this CD is the layout. It's bright and no depressing grey or dark colours that dominate which make the whole impression of music and booklet more living.
