5 stars Listening to this album for the last two days has been an absolute pleasure for me and with good reason. Let the music take you into a magical realm of a lost child and magical creatures and you have entered "The Forest of a Fey". Every song on this album is unique in its own way and I can see where the band gets their musical influences from. Songs such as "Forest Rose" and "Return from The Tournament" for me would not be out of place on a David Bowie or Pink Floyd album.

With electric and acoustic guitar solos coupled with pipes, flutes, strong drumming, excellent lyrics and vocals, for me this is one highly polished album that really shows off the enormous talents of its band members. When you add in the vocal talents of Melissa Hollick on lead female vocals, coupled with the musical and vocal talents of special guest artists, I am hard pressed to find any single track to call a favorite, so I won't and just say they are all equally favorites to me.

This album may not be for everyone's taste, but for me having listened to other Gandalf's Fists songs and having now been pulled along the hidden path into "The Forest of Fey", this album is pure magic. I highly recommend this album to one and all to indulge in some mystical fantasy rock pleasure.
