4 stars First fifteen minutes was really annoying for me, I can't find something good or interesting on first track. I've written it somewhere and I must write it again, maybe my hearing is failing, but there was almost nothing for my musical soul. This strange feelings hit me almost all the first half of the album.

But there is a reversion about this --- from average instrumental song Solara things are getting much better, song called Aquaplanage changed my mind... great instrumental thing, with amazing acoustic guitar, nice, quiet and melodic parts, great and gentle bows ... I can listen to it again, and again, and again ...

Heaven's Gate... it's successful experiment to build Heaven's gate on Earth. :-) Good singer with combination of good instrumentalists makes me happy, it's almost so good like previous song.

A Song to Stand Above Them All ... huh, so unexpected rockin' ! I wanna sing and dance ... acoustic guitar, which drags me down again ... combination of el. guitars and acoustic guitars (and if it's good arrange, like here), it's a kind of magic for me. Great one.

Theme repeats and changes main guitar theme from Aquaplanage so I like it, too.

One Star is "sayin' -goodbye-" in light folk/rock style and Christmas atmosphere. (I think it will be one of my faves Christmas songs, heh...)

I think first half of the album was trial of fire. 'Cause if you withstand it, you can listen clear, beautiful music, which can takes you to Wonderland.

Result = worse 4*

Colourful | 4/5 |
