3 stars Not bad.

This album from this Belgian band comes across as a blend of IQ, Strawbs and Genesis. Not many miles away from Manning, in fact. The music is melodic and subtle. Sometimes, it is pastorial. The musicians knows what they are doing. The vocals are good and clearly in the Strawbs vein. The music is keyboards based, although they are used sparingly. The same can be said about the guitars. In other words; the Genesis formula. The problem is that there is only one really good song on this album. I am referring to The Muse which is a great song. The rest is pretty average. On the other hand; there is no bad songs either. The album flows and ebbs away during the three quarters of an hour it last. I really do not have any strong opinions about this album. It is good and pleasing to my ears and that's it. I doubt it will be a regular feature in my CD player or if I would ever play it again. Ten times for the purpose of this review and I have got my fill.
