I find that this album was pretty well recorded, but it just doesn't have the most compelling of tracks. The production and engineering is quite modern, the mix is quite guitar heavy, barying the keys a bit. There is a very detailed string section on this album that actually quite compliments the songwriting on the album, the strings also fit very nicely with the mix of the album overall. The album cover has a very pastoral feel, well painted, something you would see from a band like Hands or Genesis. The artwork on the cover nicely fits the mood of the album, similar to how Wind and Wuthering's cover fits the mood of the music found on the album.

I am very happy that I got to opportunity to give this album a fair shot, but overall I'm not very impressed. The songs are well produced but given the songwriting style on this album, it can't be similar to the material found on albums by Citizen Cain. Some good, well written sections scattered on the album, unfortunately the good sections are covered by moderate and amateur songwriting elsewhere.


Good, but non-essential
