4 stars A very good album, though often overlooked (just take a look at the amount of ratings). If you have ever sought for an album where classical music and rock really merge into another (with stress on classical music) you should give this one a try. 8 very good tracks, pleasant to hear, though sometimes a bit unconspicous. There are slight reminisences (not quotations) of The Gemini Suite, Lord's Concerto and sometimes a hint of ELP. Most memorable are Sarabande, the beautiful Aria, the lively Gigue and the oriental tinged Bouree. Though there a comparisons at hand (Rick Wakeman, ELP etc.) I think this music could have been invented by Jon Lord only, for if he has to choose between rock and the classical music, he opts for the latter. So, if you like this kind of music, buy this CD. It will grace your collection. 4 stars.

Favourite tracks: Sarabande, Aria, Gigue, Bourrée
