This review is from: Divenire (Special Edition, BONUS DISC: 3 Brand New Remixes) (Audio CD)
After his earlier output, including soundtracks, this is perhaps the most passionate and has a rich, rhapsody-like feel. The orchestrations are very functional, without falling into the traps of wall-to-wall symphonic overdrive. Then there are countless tiny moments and details, twists, ideas - while overall it doesn't demand close attention and can work as background music, too. But when taking a close look, well, listen, his ideas seem to just flow effortlessly. You can find very quiet, meditative tracks and also grand emotional peaks. The special edition also has a few remixes which, personally, didn't find so enthralling - they are fine for some kind of 'lounge music' chillout session, but they miss exactly the passion that the album overall manages to convey so well.
