4 stars Anthony Philips comes to a full power on this long acoustic release with 61 pieces to satisfy the hunger that lasted several years. This is AP in his most conventional territory that is characterized by acoustic guitar and influence of medieval, classical or simply guitar instrumental music.

Tracks are well composed and interpreted, the sound is very clear.

My favourites on CD1: "High Fives" with its staccato runs, "Steps retraced" with a classical guitar sound, "Field Day" with its playful but subdued tone and nice melody, "Concerto de Alvarez" for its Mediterranean feel and "White Spider" for its virtuosity and expressiveness.

The second CD has a similar taste. The recommende tracks by me are: "Rain on Sag harbour" due to its melancholic feeling, "Oubliette" with its reflectiveness,"Mudlark" for a contrast guitar and banjo-like tone, "To the lighthouse" because it has an epic development.

I am sure that everybody would have chosen different favourites, there are so many choices :).

The album belongs to the better AP albums and deservers 3,5 stars although there not many progressive rock elements to be found here.
