3 stars Nice album. Not a masterpiece but not bad. Basically is a keyboard album full of proggy sections on mellotron and synthesizers a la Genesis even when the first two songs are closer to some Eloy or Renaissance stuff because the vocals of Christiane Wand. Both songs has a similar structure: a symphonic intro, Wand's vocals mixed with some epical keyboards sections and epic finale.

Anyway, my favourites are the three last songs, the instrumentals. Wings Of The Dove, Andas and specially Mitternachtstraum are full of excellent keyboards sections a la Banks, most of the time very proggy and epical perhaps Mitternachtstarum is closer to some kraut stuff but floating and very rhythmical. Definetively the best sonf of this album.

No surprises here but five decent prog songs from the 70's, specially for Genesis and female prog vocals fans...
