My review of "Morphology" CD by Robert Rich

I was very excited about this live CD since the very first day when Darren Bergstein of Anodize (and Periphery) has announced it on his Bandcamp site.

“Silas & Friends Vol 2” – Cousin Silas & guest musicians

(2013) Label: We Are All Ghosts (waag_rel32) 

“Silas & Friends vol2”... I particularly enjoy the width of different ambiences and feelings this album has. It keeps it from being one-dimensional. I guess it’s due to its very own nature: many musicians have been involved and they’ve provided a small bite of their musical world.
