3 stars What can I say about this album is that it might be the best in the group but it has moments that take your credit. Based on an epic writer of Christian C. S. Lewis, tells the story of a woman who is offered the illusion called the devil and then is forgiven by Enda (The Lion) figured that way the writer used to talk of Christ, particularly, like the album, but the story that the sound that could be one of the best albums of the group.

This, begins by introducing "Now arriving" and follows with the complex "Times Marches On", which impresses me is the musicality of Fred Schendel and a leader who led the drum of this music (I say this because I also drummer) mainly in its introduction in time "break" where bass, drums and piano encontram.Outra thing is that I love this group and wanted to highlight is the sound that seventy them carefully and follow this line. "felix the cat" has a part to withdrawal of some classical music, while in "Way to her heart" is a beautiful and romantic ballad. "Heaven" has one of the most beautiful lyrical expressions (voices) of the group. Despite all the praise cited, tracks like "Perelandra" and "Le Danse Final" are not more than median and left the disk, where tracks are in our minds the desire to finish soon.

Good, but will not change your life. 3,5 stars
