Second album from former Under Byen composer Thorbjørn Krogshede a.k.a. Thunderbear. His piano gets a lot of space on this one. No drums, but still allowing a bit of glockenspiel and some noise layers done on guitar to add extra flavour to these instrumental pieces. Quiet melancholy does seems to be a common tone in many of the melodies, but there are also great dramatic parts and some that are more joyous and playful.
Although leaning towards the more classical genres on "Solus Ipse" Under Byen fans who enjoyed the piano parts of the previous Under Byen records as well as their overall compositional style will - no surprise, I suppose - probably find this record quite interesting.
The album was recorded in the symphonic music hall at the Musikhuset in Aarhus.
