3 stars I thought I was in for some RENAISSANCE like music when I bought this album. I was wrong.

THETA was lead by a now sadly deceased female vocalist. Her voice is beautiful..... but still far from Annie Haslam's voice. Yoko Royama's voice and English vocals is far lighter and not as dark as Annie's voice. The range is not there. But the vocals are still very good and it is a great shame that Yoko Royama left us mortals in 2004. A lost talent never forgotten. Yoko Royama's vocals flows on the top of some very pastorial and minimalistic symphonic prog. Most of it is accoustic with violin, piano and flute. Keyboards is not a dominating instrument on this album. The music is pretty much like chamber orchestra symphonic prog, best enjoyed in a dark room.

Quality wise, the album sadly lacks some really good tunes. This album is not bad and I have no regrets purchasing it. But the tunes flows into each other without being really memorable. The only memorable stuff here is the Ludwig Van Beethoven rip-offs. When that is said, the music is really not bad. This is a good progressive rock record and only that.

3 stars.
