4 stars This is the only Reniassance album I own so far, but I plan to get more of their work soon because this is a darn good album! It starts off with "Trip to the Fair", which is in my opinion the best track on the album. The first three minutes are very well done with that make me feel like i'm in a fair running away from something. The music slows down a lot as Annie begins to sing, and I must say she has a strong voice! I love the tinkle of the keys in the background while she sings as well. I feel this song is close to masterpiece material. The rest of the songs are also very well done but not as good as the first. While Vultures fly high is a non- progressive and shorter track, it's still not bad, and Ocean gypsy has some nice vocal work to it. The epic piece, Song of Scheheraze, contains some of the strongest moments on the album but also doesn't feel as it fits together as well as it should. However it is still a very enjoyable piece that i find myself listening to from time to time.
