2 stars Ah, what a disappointment. It's obvious that the members of Angalard are excellent players but I'm afraid their compositional skills are quite lacking. With the exceptions of the short opening and closing tracks the rest of music sounds strangely unfocused, an amalgam of musical parts that bear little to no relation to one another. There is no sense of organic flow within the music, no overarching themes and nothing to distinguish one composition from another. Sections are tacked on to one another seemingly at random with little thought as to how they react with one another and no synthesis, ie the whole is not greater than the sum of parts. As a consequence of this cut and paste style, the music has little to no emotion for me. Perhaps if they used a vocalist to tie the parts together melodically it would have worked, we'll never know. Unfortunately the album is instrumental and to my ears somewhat stale.
