''Sweet Gloom'' surprises by the fact that it just does not build its foundation solely on the sitar, but much more is based on the singer / songwriter level and Cuban percussion. But Payuta never loses his sitar sense out of sight, because it has become his trademark. So wise he decided, to record four purely instrumentals of the twelve songs.

''Spice Of Spain'' features flamenco rhythms, while on ''Privateer'' carried by a dreamy bass and guitar sound, the sitar sings their own 'song'. Almost the same applies to ''Pick up'', only that this is not dreamy, but full of fire, and ''Moving'' comes up with elated, spanish rhythms.

Also Paytas voice has a pleasant sound - almost tender, soft and fragile with cryptic ''hoarseness''. And the stories he tells in his sung, remain excellent course with the brilliant recording quality.

''Sweet Gloom'' is the tender, warm side in a world, which just seems to lose this site more and more in their cold and hot wars.

CONCLUSION: ''Sweet Gloom'' has become exactly what the title promises . ''Sweet Gloom'' that is not about an old, brooding grumbler, but songs and Instrumentals full of atmosphere.
