5 stars One of the best concept albums I have ever had the pleasure to listen to. By far the best album by Gordon Giltrap. It all hangs together very well. Some lovely guitar work, but it is not just Mr Giltrap that stars on this work, the whole band really rock. There is some really nice drumming on the track "morbio gorge" for example. This is symphonic rock at its best. The album has nice pace and a good atmosphere and ambiance about it. To my mind there is not a bad track on it. Listeners may recognise the very catchy and stand out track heartsong which was the theme tune for the holiday program.

On vinyl, both sides build up very nicely track on track until getting to an awesome finish that nicely rounds off the sides and in the case of side 2 the end of the work. This is an album that deserves much more recognition and is a true classic. Perhaps a mistake was made by the label "Electric." Gordon Giltrap at the time was more well known for his solo guitar work and had no band following. Here we have a rock band of the finest quality interacting well but the buyer may have thought they were buying a solo guitar work! This album easily gets to the top of the 5 star category.
