4 stars This album is pretty interesting along with Bundles. First you have the short melody Aubade between guitar and sax.The it comes to the long adventureous The Tales of Talisen with shows that John Etheridge has as much talent as Hollsworth. Ban Ban Caliban is kind of a dance number. Song for Aeolus is a little boring and off beat almost. Out of Season is a little light and repetative number. Second Bundle is just like Between,The French or German lesson. John Marshall and Etheridge take the spot light on Kayoo and The Camden Tandam which goes from fusion to metal to a bules sound inabout three mintues. Nexus is just an intro to the funk Fantastic One over the Eight a group effort by the way. And the closer my personal favorite Etlka, a stalk beautiful folk jazz guitar piece by Etheridge
