Prog Reviewer
4 stars Do you like mellow music? Do you love Mellotron sound? OK, this cd is for you. An instrumental album where beloved Mellotron is the absolute star, with nice guitars and percussion.

Melodies are gentle, clear and very different from another mellotronic bands whose music is really dark, nostalgic and complex (ANGLAGARD, SINKADUS and even DEADWOOD FOREST). Nevertheless, TRION music remains beautiful, sometimes relaxing. But warning: In this case, simple doesn't mean basic or elementary. Eleven tracks (eleven highlights) are elaborated and captivating, fresh and lush.

Despite the fascinating and always present Mellotron, don't expect '70s retro music or an extremely complex album. But if you like instrumental progressive full of colour and melodic sense, you 'll enjoy "Tortoise" from the first minute to the last.
