3 stars Martin ORFORD who is likely better known for his leadership in Neo Prog bands IQ, JADFIS and The John WETTON PROJECT as their main keyboardist delivers a prog friendly album full of personal charm and character. Martin ORFORD obviously plays all keyboards and much of the vocals as well with John Wetton and IQ's Peter Nicholls leading 1 track as well. As you would expect ORFORD calls on a vast arsenal of prog talent he has worked with over the years (Gary Chandler - rhythm and electric guitars, Steve Christey - drums, John Jowitt - bass, David Kilminster - acoustic and lead guitars, Paul Cook - drums, Michael Holmes - lead guitars). The end result is a grand song/melody based album full of magical little moments with an overall sound not unlike at times IQ, JADIS and Paul Menel-era IQ with a semi classical twist.
