4 stars A prerequisite for being able to enjoy this release, is to be fond of music from the 70's.

Because this album sounds like it was recorded in the late 70's, production as well as utilization of instruments and song structures just have that immense feel of yesteryear.

Musically, this is light prog with heavy spicing of AOR, light guitars, a bass guitar that on some tracks thumps along, simple and effective drumming and synth that is used sparingly and subtle when not used for soloing.

Some vocal harmonies are used, making the group sound somewhat alike to Yes in those tracks, and the vocalist do sound like Jon Anderson - but with balls and hair on his chest.

Personally I found this one intriguing and interesting, although it did take time and concentrated listening getting into this release.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
