5 stars Gandalf's Fist are fast becoming my favourite band, their new album is quite different from the last, but equally great. This one opens with a mother shouting for her child to stay with her and the voice drifts off into the background as the child wanders from the path. The album flows with interludes filling the gaps between the songs which add atmosphere and let the album flow, as with other Gandalf's fist albums its meant to be listened to in one go, which I have done repeatedly, that's not to say there's no stand out tracks,I would love to hear Forest Rose on the radio for one, Gardens of the Lost and Drifter on the edge of time for others. Guest vocalists add much depth to the proceedings with Stories old, being a prime example.

It's hard to pin down exactly what I love about this band, maybe that none of their songs really sound the same and no 2 albums have had a similar theme. this one is very Tull like in places and then the Maiden like guitars kick in and I'm not sure like I've quite heard anything like it before, all I know is that I like it.

9.5/10
