5 stars A very solid album.

Great vocals, great harmonies, great overall atmosphere, great musicianship, great production.

It's insane to think that she did this album all by herself. The instruments, the vocals, the production. For a debut album this is insanely good.

The music crosses different syles: new age, worldmusic, folkmusic and progressive rock (sans the rock).

What haunts me the most on this album, isn't just the beautiful vocals and the nice instrumentation, but the warmth of the production and how the themes just flow into eachother. There's a lot going on, but it never is chaotic.

This is the only album of Sally I know, but I will surely check out the rest of her. This is an absolute must-have for progfans and musicfans worldwide.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
