3 stars This band from Israel released a good debut album, a rather surprising one.

The music is well diversified on this offering. A truly folkish opening number is more an appetizer to discover the epic title track. At times frenetic, this number seems to come straight from the ELP repertoire. Wild keys, great drumming and powerful bass. But Trespass also adds some medieval sounds (with flute) which differentiate them. Even the artwork and its renaissance flavour features this tendency.

Classical influence can't be denied during this long song (over twenty one minutes), and the vocal harmonies are really pleasant. They have seriously improved in comparison of their debut. This is an extremely varied piece of work. The highlight of course.

The renaissance style is back again with Ripples. Even if it is not a cover song, it holds a lot of Genesis influences. Great beat la Dance On A Vulcano, but fully keyboards oriented of course. Very strong synthesizers, even if one might think that Banks is whispering the sounds.Watcher. has been listened to in Israel, for sure. Flute adds such a pleasant touch as well to this good track.

I'm not sure if Vivaldi would have appreciated the tribute Vivaldish. I don't like it very much but the work on the keyboards is wonderful. Not bad after all. And the closing number Forest Bird's Fantasy is almost a sountrack for a fairy tale. Classical and pompous. Pastoral (all these birds sounds) and childish.

It is encouraging that the band could release another good album. Let's just hope that they will continue on this good trend and promptly deliver a third one.

Three solid stars for Morning Lights.
