ABOUT THIS ALBUM

Almost like their 1st album.
The album is beyond great, but a little less than superb.. Don't get me wrong, E.S. Posthumus is one of my favorite artists & I have all of their albums. This album sounds way better than the butchered 2nd album "Cartographer" (my opinion that is), but not better than the 1st album "Unearthed" (which I believe is still the best album of all 3). In Unearthed, I loved ALL of the songs but two. That album was well made, and VERY catchy. In Cartographer, I only loved 2 out of the many songs in this album: Selisona Pi & Oraanu. Those were the only songs that defined the word "catchy" to me. Now in Makara, I heard a drastic change & really got me ears aroused once again. Well done. Almost like the 1st album, very catchy. Especially my favorite songs in it: Manju & Lavanya. They both sound like their previous songs "Cuzco & Oraanu". I look forward to hearing their next album in the nearby future, if they come out with one that is. Well, this is my review. I hope you enjoy their album as much as I did.

The long wait is over
If "awesome" were audible, it would be this! If you're known with their work, then this is the absolute must-have.

Where's the hype?
I remember when Cartographer came out, this site exploded with reviews. Makes me worry about how well the word got out on this album's release.

But anyway, the album itself is amazing, nothing less than what i expected of such an amazing team!! I will say that it took me a couple listen-throughs of the whole album until i really started to completely appreciate it and enjoy it, i guess i just wasnt sure what to expect of the new "high-octane" album considering their past styles. It is a different take on E.S. Posthumus: Going from exotic and sometimes almost dreamlike compositions in the first two albums to a more loud, action packed, and fast paced orchestra. But they do make it work, and they make it work very well at that.

It is a good thing, however, that they are experimenting with their sound (heh, Experimental Sound). Their 2nd album, Cartographer, brought vocals into play. Which I for one thought Luna Sans did an absolutely amazing job. and this one brings their style to a more action packed mixed with Unearthed style compostions. And once again, they did an amazing job!!

Thank you, E.S. Posthumus! I can't wait to hear what you guys have in store next!!

Another touchdown...
I agree with Matt's review, this album is closer to Unearthed. Cartographer was somewhat more mellow. This album delivers, no doubt about it. ES Posthumus is as always creative and releases powerful songs.

E.S. Posthumus does it again
Absolutely Amazing !!!

My Favourite so far
More like Unearthed than Cartographer, certainly enjoyable to a fan of both, this is easily my favorite E.S. Posthumus album, and possibly my favorite album from any other artist as well.
PS: You'd think the site wouldn't try to correct the spelling of the artist's name

Finally!
Finally some recognition of fantastic musical genius. Let's encourage the brothers to continue making great albums!

ESP still impresses me!!
With a very epic tone to this album (very much more than Unearthed and definitely Cartographer), this album sets for a great, adrenaline-packed experience! My favourites are Manju, Saint Matthew Passion, Moonlight Sonata, Unstoppable, Arise, Kuvera, Anumati and Krosah. It is really hard to say my favourite with this album! I'm so glad I finally have all 3 CDs of ESP's albums now! These guys just never disappoint! I hope ESP gets more recognition, especially after that Superbowl performance with Jay-Z, which I think was a great example of popularity-making! Hope to hear more from ESP's music soon!!

Great music, better than Cartographer, but sounds really harsh and compressed.
I've been looking forward to this followup for a long time. Cartographer was a great album, but it got extremely boring for me after the first six songs, until things picked up with the final song. Unearthed, as most everyone here already knows, is a winner from beginning to end. Makara to me is a return to that greatness, though I think it could've used some quieter songs here and there to mellow out the adrenaline a bit.

Unfortunately, all of this fantastic music is hampered by what seems to be some EXTREME use of compression, at least as far as the mp3s are concerned (a friend of mine bought them here, I ordered the CD but it's not in yet). It's extremely loud and it sounds like a lot of the dynamic range got murdered, particularly when you listen to it with headphones. Listen to Unearthed and then Makara and the difference is very clear.

Certain genres of music might be able to get away with compressing their music into a giant wall of low quality noise, but using it on anything with classical instruments in such a way that E.S Posthumus does is sacralige. I'm not some huge audiophile prude, but as soon as I listened to the first song with my headphones (high quality Bose ones), the harshness actually hurt my ears.

Hopefully this won't be a tragic victim of the loudness war (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war) that's going on in music nowadays with the CD version, but if it is, then I weep for what might have been.

WOW..... Well worth the wait!
All I can say is WOW... This album was TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT!!!!

If you loved Unearthed and the second disc of Cartographer...you will LOVE this album.

So far my favorite track is Indra.... Just buy the CD! You'll love it..>!
