4 stars Having listened to 'Story Tellers Part 1' back in the day and not being particularly enthused, I was watching the Prog from home concert and Peter Jones popped up playing Hygge as a piano and vocal slot (with a Firth of Fifth intro) in his garden (complete with chirping sparrows!) and I was immediately hooked... I then investigated the album version and WOW what an absolute gem of a track.

The album itself ain't too bad either, he has certainly matured since the earlier album (and now he's the keyboard player with CAMEL - some promotion).

But this one track is beautiful - set in 3/4, it ebbs and flows from peaceful to powerful, quiet to loud. On its own a definite 5 stars.

The rest of the album is quite clever with the intended bleakness of winter, including various nods to Steve Hackett and Frost. But when one considers that the whole gamut is performed by Peter Jones this then becomes nothing short of extraordinary (flute and brass excepted).

However, a very strong 4 stars - apart from that track Hygge (5 stars).
