5 stars Better Never Let Go!

Slightly lower than what would be three classic pillars of the group, and that would come after this great debut. The sound on the remastered version is great and raises the album to another level. The album contains four classics:

 Slow Yourself Down, claimed with two good acoustic versions on The Paris Collection. Mystic Queen, a beautiful acoustic symphonic song. Never Let Go, and powerful instrumental Arubaluba.

Vocals are interspersed between Latimer, Ferguson and Bardens, none with a voice and style defined there, Latimer achieve something in the future, and sometimes Ferguson. But in fact, as is well known, would never be the strongest of the group at the beginning, and yes one of its specific features that distanced him with reference to other classic bands of the genre.

As for the instrumental parts is clearly seen the potential of the band, being much greater results than the sum of its parts. Curiosity and the other instrumental Six Ate, are also worthy of the best Camel, not Separation .

Despite not having extensive songs, is a symphonic progressive album around the meaning of gender. 4,5 stars.

sinslice | 5/5 |
