5 stars Drifting Sun first appeared back in the '90's, by the latter half of the decade put out two nice studio works, and then drifted back below the horizon. Next thing you know, they've popped back up this year, spreading the word about a new album of theirs with all the enthusiasm and zeal of a fresh faced band. This I can now confirm is entirely natural, as this record is a beautiful and truly marvelous slice of music that sounds like it was cut by young blood. I mean, immediately when playing the album from the top listeners are sucked in by seemingly youthful and certainly pretty sounds. The course of the album weaves wonderfully through long tracks of symph and neo alongside shorter beauties, with piano often complementing the rock side. And at the very end, the final two tracks, a second wind of unexpected and boundless energy comes in to carry us through to a smashing conclusion. Very enjoyable, just a pure treat for the ears, played excellently and with vigor.
