5 stars And I give 5 stars (really 4.5) to this album despite the fact of this is NOT a masterpiece in compare with best albums of Yes, Genesis, JT and other monsters. But. This's REALLY "forgotten minor classic" (review from And masterpiece for me. :p This album is very good example of song-based symphonic progressive rock. Every song is vell composed and performed, but not so simple and straightforward as written in bio. It tooks several listens to understand melodies (but still not all arrangements - in process :) ) so I strongly recommend this record for everybody, who have already heard all monsters of Prog and seeks for other good albums of prog of 70th. I especially love prog music with strong and pleasant vocal melodies so this is album for me :) It is hard for my terrible English to describe each song, but at the moment I can point at least two highlights - "The Acrobat" and "August Carol", the last one is very typical for Kestrel sound and has two sections - "song" and finale section of strong mellotron- theme followed by even more emotional guitar play. So - must have.
