Opening with Bye Bye Babylon Good Bye is one of the first songs I came across by Steffan and it remains as much of a joy to hear once again, with its visceral lyric rebounding on Western Christian Society values.

Next is Libertad Freedom which had me reaching for the texts on José Doroteo Arango Arámbula with the very clear South American references and call to arms for political prisoners around the world. My pick of the Aggressive Pacifist.


Half-way through the just under nineteen minutes release is Empathy. A piece that finds Steffan in a hauntingly driven number, which is, an introspective work of his own relationships with a supportive group of friends over the years.

Opening the second half of Aggressive Pacifist is Chirimoya which is another personal number of spiritual discovery and makes for a lighter tune than has come before, with an upbeat sound.

Concluding the EP is Timebomb that consternates on current frictions and mores, which is a fine exposition of his thinking.

Steffan Rundquist never attempts to complicate the issues he sees at hand, in his compositions which are bereft of twirl, the music appearing as a timbre backdrop to the poetry and Aggressive Pacifist is a fine example of his work.
