4 stars Mixed impressions about this album. Based mainly in an acoustic mode, the first half consist in four traditional songs, and the rest is an epic tracked in 8 parts. The first half is simply outstanding, specially the first three songs. Great melody lines with Guy Manning voice shining all the time and this guitar support. The opening In Swingtime is really catchy and addictive. Night Voices is a superb ballad with extraordinayr lyrics and a beauty melody. No Hiding place is the highlight of the album, longer than the others, in the middle of the track it flows into a really progressive instrumental interlude, just stunning. Mexico Line is good track too. The second half, the epic One Small Step, is something not much of my taste. Excesively vocally driven, the tracks lacks of diversity and the instrumental sections are in small doses, maybe except the track Black & Blue. So I give five stars for the first half, something essential, unless for me, but three stars for the second half. So as a result, I will give it four stars.
