3 stars This is actually a piece of very interesting music. Or several pieces, really. Bayon played a sort of progressive folk music that manages to be both interesting, charming and baffling. Their music cannot really be said to reflect the west european tradition, not the eastern either. It is more of "world music goes progressive".

The first two tracks, in paricular Die Nacht, is enchanting pieces of music in an acoustic setting. The music is as a whole acoustically driven, whish gives it a very organic feeling. Nice and soothing. The final track is by far the most progressive, in my mind. Bayoun Suite is a multifacetted piece of music played before a live audience. That is true progressive folk and brings to mind Pentangle. Maybe not in style but in progressive ableness, the ability to expand the borders of folk into something completely different.

I think that Bayon is well worth checking out if you are into to prog folk and would like to try something that stands apart from the more well known bands from the british isles, like Fairport Convention or Pentangle. Best track? Bayon Suite, I think. It is a tour de force.
