4 stars Turn of the cards an album that has some changes in sound and manner of composition than the early albums. First the album is more symphonic than previous ones, because they have here more orchestral arrangements as important part of their songs then on Asher are burning or Prologue, and second to me this album is with some folkish elements here and there. Anyway Turn of the cards is a strong album but less captivating than previous two and even kinda weaker and to mellow at times than the next 3, with exception Novela ( i think the weakest from the '70's and the most mellow album they ever done, at least for me). So the music is again very well played, just listen to Runnning Hard, is a great start with beautiful instrumental arrangements is the beginning of the song. The song is long and very beautiful, with highlight to the keyboard arrangements of the song, i think the best from here. Another highlit is the last piece Mother Russia, a great composition that showes the talent of the whole band. All in all a great album, but not their best. 4 stars for this one
