3 stars At the listen of the first track "Nothing More", the music seems to announce textures slightly reminiscent of the first line-up of the Renaissance band, as revealed by the Baroque piano, by the typical melancholic electric guitar solos and by the rhythmic acoustic guitars. Unfortunately, a rather straightforward folkier, rock and country style occur thereafter. Fairport Convention and the other bands of this era having a female lead singer come to mind when it is time to compare the actual music. There are many modern folk artists who sound alike. Sandy Denny's lead vocals are a sure value. The music is quite good but sounds pretty deja vu. The tracks are not really progressive, and the folkier character is the strongest element, despite there are some borderline country elements. The album thus stands on the frontier separating the prog folk and the prog related styles.

Rating: 3.5 stars
