4 stars This is going to be the last chapter of my small trilogy of laid back melodic albums I'm reviewing today and you almost could say I saved the best for last. After Edhels' Still Dream and Edith's Dreams, two albums of which the title says it all in fact it's now high time for the Willowglass debut. And it's almost the best of the three because all things considered I personally prefer Edhels but it's a tough call which is objectively the greatest.

When I checked this album out first few times I often associated it with Camel, a band Willowglass is also referred to in the band description and is the best comparison I feel. Pink Floyd and Anthony Phillips are also mentioned, all with good right but will all three the vocals play an important role and Willowglass is 100% instrumental, one of the reasons I love this band so much.

When I played this album I always completely fell for second track (and first lengthy one) Remembering, such a wonderful tune making you surrender and long for more. And more there is on this fabulous debut. Most people prefer their follow up Book of Hours and all things considered so do I but that's no reason to sell this beauty short. Also the self titled debut is totally worthy of the four stars. If you want to sit back and relax, play this one. It's perfect !
