4 stars Very, very interesting album done by this obscure band project from the late 70īs. A kind of mix together Genesis, Eloy and Tangerine Dream. Of course it is mostly keyboard-driven, the band had two keyboardists, but they also had a fine rhythm section and an added guest on flute on a couple of tunes. I liked the female Annie Haslam-like vocalise on the first two tracks, and the nice acoustic guitars on Silas Marner. It all help to enhance the music, but the keyboards sound are really the stars: tasteful, great timbres and very well played.

Production is very good and clear, the arrangements are excellent and the melodies are catchy. It has no fillers anywhere, and the only bad part of it is the short running time (a little over 30 minutes). Unlike many 70īs instrumental works, this one has no self indulgence or any excess: the music is always captivating and grabs you from the very start.

A very nice surprise. Thanks to Gatot, for his review sparkled my interest. Every symphonic prog fan should listen to this album. Highly recommended.
