    "Religious Psych" may be something of a contradiction in terms. "Religiously-tinged Avant-Garde" may suit it better, yet, back in 2006, shortly after an announcement from a collector in British paper The Guardian, regarding "an esoteric Israeli acid-folk LP", a little stir was caused among collectors in the Holy Land. This time, the hype was rightfully there, as reflected from listening to this CD reissue. In the booklet, the artist himself explains how the music came about, following his strolling in the Carmel forest in the late 1970s, attempting to emulate the prophets of Biblical times… and indeed, the ability of Miel to fully integrate with his own soul via experimentalism is the key to both the creation and delivery of such collection of purely inspired, mostly instrumental tracks that are not connected in any way to traditional Jewish music. Musically, however, not only is every track a whispering ember in its own right, it is also apparent that like with a bonfire, all the roaming whispers are joined collectively in body and spirit… and heard into the sky and from the sky, like a collectively-minded prayers. A declared fan of John McLaughlin, Miel plays all instruments on the album. Always being in the position of a self-portrayed individualist, it may stand as a self-explanatory of the "Non-Commerciality" nature of the compositions, as well as of the unusual arrangements, yet delicately-textured bursts of fuzz guitar and friendly congas. All these are augmented by high-spirit guitar solos… From the acid-tinged jazz inspirations and chants on Orchard of the Whispering Embers via the somewhat mysterious-come-obvious, Gentle Giant imbued atmosphere of The Holy Zohar, through the Ramases-styled rejoicing come jam-packed A Jewish Soul, followed by the hand-drummed; sea-waved pastorally-tickled Nueiba Nueiba (the latter, not too incidentally, is named after a coast in the Sinai peninsula). Another vocal track, Derech Eretz, may demonstrate the artist's experience as a hermit that reaches a pinnacle in Halleluya. An unexplained come well-crafted drumming-filled Amsterdam Experience is followed by another guitar burst on The Creator's Joy that was apparently excerpted from the highly progressive Fourteen Minutes. A Piece of Art is another self-explanatory, carefully fabricated number, whilst the English-sung would-be lament Don't Change the World is pleading us to go back to the nature and leave the industrial world behind… The independently minded, God-loving ambience reflected in the record's name and the music carried within may not be in a position to turn the charts alight, and have never been aimed at that purpose. On the other hand, at the same time, all the above suggest that a careful and painstaking listening to the album may equate a walk through an orchard where every orange is a step towards one's true spirit and mind, where the power of thoughts leads to the oranges' self-peeling and willingness to jump into your mouth, only to prove themselves a food for thought-come-sweet platform for creation… that can set the world alight when the time has come. Whilst Shimshon Miel may have founded the album as his own method of worshipping the Lord, this is a true find for the seculars as well. Thanks to The Guardian, following by a vision (pun intended!) courtesy of ARS records together with the full co-operation of the artist, this little gem was rescued from oblivion and is finally in print again. However, unlike with the old clich?, there is absolutely no need to crank up the volume if you want to hear the embers' whispers".
