3 stars There's not much going on here in the compositions, and not a great deal of virtuosity on display. The best musician here would be bassist Ross Muir, who occasionally approaches Squire territory, especially on the more rhythmically energetic compositions like "Fenris" or "Caviar Queen". Guitarist Ramon York doesn't show off much, but he's good at gentle relaxing textures - he's probably most responsible for the relative success of their more mellow tracks, and it's the mellow tracks that dominate - "Butterfly Sky", "Rainbow Bridge", "Raga", "Dream". The band makes heavy use of mellotron and occasional Moog, but it's some of the least imaginative playing I've heard on those instruments. Lea Maalfrid sings on several tracks, and while I'm not a great fan of her mid-range-belt, she's great in upper register - she saves the otherwise forgettable "Fire In The Sky", and well suits "Fenris" and "Caviar Queen".

My version has only the 8 tracks listed under 'correct track listing', I don't have the two tracks titled "Ragnarok". Am I missing anything?
