'N crugu bradului opens and closes a complete and expressive cycle, a unitary vision melting mythological ambient, psychedelic and Transilvanian feeling into a complex layered musical and ideological structure. Sought original musical and lyrical structures, a deep personal emotional approach, make the album not just a cyclic dream journey throughout the essences of Romanian spirituality, but also a stage in Negură Bunget's own initiation. Symbolically based on the universal principle of 4 (through its exploration of the 4 the seasons), 'N crugu bradului explores the core of the local traditional human wisdom, the millenary spiritual contend emanated by these lands. Spirituality, tradition, feeling, behavior, wisdom, music... all merge together to offer a coagulated and complete view over the Romanian Traditional Spirituality seen as a whole.Negru / Negura Bunget interview, Prog Archives, 2011
