3 stars Well , when one thinks of the influences of FD on this album, the first thing that comes to mind is a guitar-less Yes but a lot more discreet than Druid or Starcastle's debut. As you can see from the track listing , this is a concept album based on the four elements (Earth , air , water and fire) . But on my Tachikawa copy there is a fifth track (max 3 min) unanounced - more of a sound collage - that might be representing life (the fifth Element). Overall , the loss of the guitarist has hurt them a bit compared to the previous one , he was also doing some songwriting , and the players do not come to the shoulder-height of the masters they are inspired by . Don't let this deter you as these first two albums are still worth discovering . I have not heard what comes after.
