    Solo performer: Keiya (vocals, various instruments).
    Arranger: Keiya.
    Full of melody and invention, Sun Walker proves to be an album of surprises. There's plenty of lush instrumentation on the first three cuts, which offer a meditative feel of minor synthesizer chords over rhythms that stay polite. But then, with "Hello Sun Hayee" it turns positively jaunty for a track. By the time of "Bazaar," it's taken a turn that's, well, bizarre -- straight into some very good and authentic dancehall reggae that's add odds with the prior feel of the disc, including some excellent vocals. And from there the energy level seems to increase, with "Turquoise Drums" sporting a light dance feel, and "The Prodigal Son," with its didgeridoo sample, turning to a percussion-fest of sorts, before calming down again with "First Light." While based on a somewhat dubious, naive story (included in the booklet), the music from this Belgian artist proves to be very satisfying. The melodies flow with style and thought, the tracks develop well, and the occasional left-field addition breaks things up well. Keiya knows what he wants to do, and achieves it. ~ Chris Nickson
