3 stars Few days ago I've chanced to buy 5 second-hand albums of that band (project?) by 3 $ !!! To my luck, they were in a good state. The first I listened was that one - VISIONS.

Since the very first notes I've clearly understood what will I have here - instrumental and meditational New Age with some World-Music/Sympho Prog/Space Rock/Indo-rock (due to sitar and tribalesque patterns)/you-name-them influences. Flawless as a background, GANDALF's music is not much worthy as a Prog itself (sorry for saying that). Being a proto-ENIGMA stuff (kinda), "Visions" lacks focus. Maybe it's stupid to say that about backgroundish New Age, but since it's here...OK, I'll try not to be THAT rude - melodies are good, the atmosphere is hypnotizing and this album (and the whole GANDALF's collection I got) is my mommy's favouritest now. That's why 3 stars - you have them Heinz! Thank to my mommy! :)
