Evan Hause's music has been called "spectacularly audacious" and "ingenious" [Gramophone], "from the sublime and elegant to bawdy and vulgar" [American Record Guide], "delightful and clever" [Records International], "astounding" [The Denver Post], "compelling" [The New York Times], and "fresh and dramatic" [Opera News]. In "Plastic Island Pentecost," his fourth and most ambitious rock solo album to date, he has created a 44-minute journey, but from where to where? A craggy, dreamlike mountain pass to a dreamed ancient temple? Or from a disjunct and disoriented present to a sanguine and idyllic future? Using mainly the instrumentation of a typical 70s prog rock group, and a few über-talented guest artists, Hause weaves a musical tapestry of incredible scope and beauty and casts his lot with the Prog classics.
