5 stars What can I say about this Album!!! It is STUNNING to coin a word. From the opening track with the atmospheric guitars, seaguls, and fantastic guitar work brought by the fabulous (God) known as Colin Tench (Bunchakeze, CTP, The Mintstrels Ghost) The album mainly focuses on the sea and a dream of taking sail. with vocals to match the amazing musicianship that all the musicians show in this brilliant album. Italso features the talents of Stef Flaming (Murky Red) Marco Chiapini (Gandalfs Project, The Minstrels Ghost) Victor Tassone (Unified Past) Vocals come from Andy John Bradford ( A Solo Singer/Songwriter and the man behind most of the songs) The Album was mixed by the brilliant Colin Tench who thuogh still learning techniques, has clearly got a flare for mixing and mastering. This is BEAUTIFULLY MIXED ALBUM with a WALL OF SOUND filling your ears from the very first note.

Highlight tracks for me? They have to be Empty hands, with fabulous lyrics, 6000 Friends who also feature the vocals of Lorelei McBroom of Pink Floyd fame, and Rod Stewart fame, plus the Rolling Stones, (to name a few) It goes to show that quality attracts quality. The other highlight for me was the quirky Invictus Captain of my soul with strong and rhythmic percussion mixed with well thought out keyboards which lead the song all the way through.

This is a very well thought out Album, it flows at a nice pace and you never find yourself skipping from track to track. It is a feel good Album, pure entertainment, pure passion, pure Joy!!!

I can't recomend it enough which is why I give it 5 stars!!! BUY IT
