4 stars A must have for all prog-heads. This album is a fantastic example of how amazing prog folk can be. A 38 minute instrumental album which I still listen to every once in a while. "Opening Move" starts off the album with upbeat and catchy folk tunes, which almost remind me of late 70's Jethro Tull. The piano work in this track is definately my favorite segment of music on the album. "Second Spasm" begins folky and remains that way until it ends. "Lament" brings the album to a more somber tone, although the melody is still fantastic and may be the best written track on the album. "Checkmate" wraps up the album and brings back similar riffs & melodies that were heard earlier in songs like "Opening Move" & "Second Spasm". It ends on a build up and sums up the album in a bash. A must have!!!
