4 stars ****1/2 An album that gets better the more you listen to it! Extremely well written and performed, the CD consists of two long suites AWAKE AND DREAMING and FOUNTAINS OF ASH - both are emotionally charged and full of interesting changes. One of the most appealling things to me about the recording is that Leroy James manages to play exciting modern- sounding guitar without falling into the over- processed sound so prevelant in a lot of modern recordings.All of the band are excellent musicians and they are augmented by superb violin playing provided by Neil Catchpole. One of the best releases from 2006!
