3 stars FAUNS second album dispenses with the more overt and cheery celtic aspects of their debut. They continue to espouse woodsy acoustic based prog with occasional aggressive diversions, and the sounds remain pleasant in a generally background sort of way. When they emerge from reverie, the result is perhaps more obtrusive than advisable, so any hope of becoming lost in the grooves is wasted.

Sadly, the moribund pace is not altered one iota whether the passages are strummily dreamed or metallically layered. No "Sprig Within her Hair" or "As Her Autumn Song Called" here. An injection of vivacity is sorely needed and not to be found. The closest would be the opening of "A perfect Place" with its lively keyboards, percussion, and lead guitar before returning to the established mantra all too soon. Here and in the opener "Scenes from a Dream" a downbeat 1980s influence can be discerned in some of the melodies.

This collection of generally appealing songs and epics truly would benefit from the solar warmth which it purports to crave, and would probably be better off disseminated within playlists in a complimentary fashion.
