5 stars This is one of my favourite albums of alltime. I really like the way Davy Rohl blends symphonic passages with rock and moreover how he integrates folk music with orchestral. There are many guests, but normally these are not my favorites: Most come from folk music or from not- too-progressive rock bands like 10CC, BJH and Moody Blues. Yet, with the orchestral touch done to this it all becomes very majestic. I would compare it quite a bit to Renaissance, especially when Maddy Prior takes the stage. For me this album served as an opener to more mellow type of prog, so if you like Renaissance and/or Orchestral music you should definitely give this a try. Highlights: Like the wind (awesome with vocals by Maddy Prior) and Dawning of a new day.
