5 stars One of the most beautiful CDs I had the opportunity to hear in the last year or two. Absolutely stunning perfomrance by this very underrated band from the United Kingdom. Their studio albums may sound a little too polished, but Strange Behaviour shows how good they are in front of an audience! Their sound is a joy to hear from beginning to end, and weīre talking about a 2 hour+ album!

Karnakata music is quite unique but if you want some reference think about a more progressive version of Clannad, less folkish and more rockier. This impression may be given by the fact that Rachel Jones has a superb voice that is a bit similar to Clannadīs Maire Brennan. Add that to Anne Marie Helder fine harmonies and you have a perfect combination that makes you shiver everytimne of you hear them singing together. Helder also plays the flute on some songs to give an extra texture. Simply great.

But letīs not forget that the musicians are also superb and work as a tigh unit. Sometimes is hard to believe this is a live album. All them are great, but mention must be given to Jonathan Edwards beautiful keyboards textures and, specially, to guitarrist Paul Davies who shows his tasteful guitar breaks and solos everytime the song ask for it (and then giving it a little bit more!). Absolute perfect timing and talent.

Ok, they are a bit mellow sometimes, but never lame. In fact I canīt really find any fault in this album. If you like melodic prog rock with some incredible female vocals, this is a must have. Highly recommended!
