4 stars I really liked this album

This album, like the previous, shows the band is capable of creating a very unique style. Renessaince and Medieval folk influences are present here, but also impressionistic influences. There are even avant-garde influences here. My favourite piece is 'the Moon Is Down'. The only piece i liked slightly less than the rest (which doesn't mean it's a bad piece) is 'Edge Of Twilight.' After several listens you might not be able to say that you understand the complete album, but the music sounds still very pleasant to the ear. I understand why some people have a hard time getting into this, though.

The music tastes like a dish with 20 kinds of vegetables, 15 kinds of meat, 10 kinds of fish, 5 kinds of patatoes and rice and 30 kinds of herbs, which still tastes very well. It tasted like a great album, but not their best.

Foolsdrummer | 4/5 |
