3 stars Another classic and classically-oriented album by the master of the 12-string guitar. The tracks are rather soft and laid back and so quite suitable for quiet evenings at home

"Something Blue" has a particularly soothing feeling.

The ambiance changes first on the fifth track, "Lostwithiel", which is an electronic ambient track with certain development unlike "Under the ice" that sounds like meaningless 6 minutes.

Back to guitar - twingy guitar is introduced in the seventh track "Sarah Blakely's evening" and vocals in "She'll be waiting".

Classical guitar is represented on "Hills of Languedoc". Then comes a hanfdul of tracks with two acoustic guitars to enrich the listening experience and they are averagely good.

"Night Song" brings a female operatic vocal which does not match the music well. The only long track is "Chinese walls" with its 17 minutes of pure acoustic guitar.
