5 stars I enjoyed the last release from The Far Meadow and their latest, Foreign Land, is even more enjoyable. As before this is symphonic neo-prog. What makes this prog band stand out from the rest is the excellent female vocal which complements and enhances the excellent musicianship throughout the album. I've listened to the album on repeat since I came across it. All five tracks are notable with the opener and longest Travelogue my favourite. This is over 18 minutes that develops over several phases with fine keyboard work and guitar solos before returning for the close with the opening theme. The next two tracks, Sulis Rise and Mud, are probably my least favourite of the five but still enjoyable. The Fugitive and title track Foreign Land provide a strong close to the album with more opportunities for fine solos. I couldn't fault this album and given the amount of enjoyment it has provided I have to give it 5 stars.
