2 stars An overdose of sweeties from Belgium.

The flutes rings out and the music is sweet. The vocalist is very sweet. The keyboards is sweet too. ............please pass me the salt, please.

The soundscape here is full of nice sounds from keyboards, flutes and the piano. The songs..... I am sure I have heard these songs before, done better by other bands. There is a Eleanor Rigby ripoff here which then passes over to a Yes song ripoff I have forgotten. In the middle of this; the Hair musical sound track jumps in on at least two songs. Jesus Christ Superstar also makes a flypass on this album. Everything is glossed over by a female angelic choir. Sweet..... The worst thing though is the vocals. They are more emotionally charged than a Katherine Hepburn movie and totally over the top.

This is as you may have caught onto now, not an album I rate highly. There are some good pieces here and there. Mostly when the vocalist and the female choir shuts up. Which is not often. But most of this album is pretty grim listening. This is an album with little symphonic prog or any other qualities. Avoid.

2.25 stars
