4 stars The American band Ut Gret bring us a mix of avant-prog, retro prog, world music, folk and jazz. This is not music that jumps between styles, rythms and tunes within the space of seconds. No; Ancestors Tale is a remarkable accesible record. These are very coherent compositions while very diverse in styles and influences. There is some great playing and singing but it is all done with restraint and taste. It sounds very fresh and colourfull. For all the mellotron nuts among you: there is a fair bit of it on this album.

What is there not to like? well, nothing really. This is simply one of my favourite albums of the year.

I am tempted to give this album 5 stars as compensation for the many who gave this album 1 star (Have those people actually listened to this album more then once, or just listened to a few snippets on progstreaming and rewarded this experience by giving one star?) However, somewhere in the range 4- 4,5 is more realistic.
