5 stars Not too hard to find, but fairly expensive for an import. Worth every penny, though. I was expecting to hear some Camel here, but I didn't hear any. That might sound like bad news to some, but not to these ears. I love Camel, but Gotic are no Camel. Gotic released 1 album only, and it sounds strictly like Gotic. Some have compared Gotic to Quebec's MANEIGE. Well, maybe in _mood_ you can compare them to Maneige, but Maneige had far more percussion in their pieces . It's hard for me to pick out a stand out track here, but all are stellar prog.rock. This album never gets heavy, but it doesn't bore anyone off to snoozeland. Entirely instrumental, but no turkies. Every track has been carefully crafted. It's well written instrumental fusion, maybe what Return To Forever might sound like had they combined some lighter influences from Gentle Giant. I like the whole album, but especially the closer _Historia d'una gota d'aigua_. Once it's over, you'll want to press PLAY again. A masterpiece.
