2 stars Oh my! Is this the bottom of the pit?

Ritchie is recycling his Blackmore's Night formula since "Ghost of a Rose". I think that nobody cares for Candice's lyrics (as always, forgettable or - in the best cases - plain), so it's the music the main factor of atraction in this group. Besides a curious (nothing more than that) cover of 'Street of dreams" (with former Rainbow Joe Lynn Turner in the bonus track - at least in my brazilian cd) and the "Child in time" play, nothing atracts me in this album. I'm one of the biggest Ritchie fans in the rock circles here in Rio, but I can't stand for more of the same albums, totally predictable and without inspiration. I hope Ritchie is happy with his partner and music, but I'm not. Why don't put a hard rock band with Candice? Repetition by repetition, I prefer it in the Rainbow formula.

If you don't know Blackmore's Night, try "Shadow of the Moon" or the unbeliaveble low- rating "Under a Violet Moon". For a good collection, the DVD "Castles and dreams" is the best option. But don't lose your time with "The Village Lanterne" unless you're a completist or a die-hard fan.

PS: Blackmore's Night doesn't have ANY smell of prog.
