5 stars Enough cannot be said about "Novella". Not only was this the album I was introduced to Renaissance with, but it absolutely has stayed with me as their most excellent to date.

The music is absolutely HAUNTING, its so good! Execution, musicianship, songwriting... what else could your heart desire. There are only a few places in musical history that i would have sold my soul to be where they were being created and "Novella" is one album that I'd have to give it up for. Just to be IN THE STUDIO listening to Annie sing these tracks for the first time gives me goosebumps!

There isn't a bad track on the album although on the second side you can tell they've taken the jamming a little too far and too long.

I've listened to everything else Renaissance but this is the album to OWN.
