2 stars In my search for the ultimate Prog Folk album of the decade, I purchased Dave Bainbridge's new album. It's the only way you can hear it. Got to shell out the cash to put it in your ear.

Small sections impressed me. Mostly Bainbridge's Gilmorish guitar work. That's about it. Too many recycled Celtic grooves that I heard decades ago. Sure, they were surrounded by symphonic keyboards, but the retread Celtic schtick left me flat. Most the songs had promising sections. They would begin and I'd think, "This is going to be good, but they quickly wore out their welcome the way Neal Morris songs fall short...for me. That said, I'm sure some folks will love this album. But will they circle back around in five years to listen again? I doubt it. For now "To the Far Away" may circulate and pulsate through their speakers, but soon their Bainbridge CD will haunt their overflowing music shelves...gathering dust. Not me. I'll sell mine. I'm sure there are plenty Americans who'll pay my $15 asking price, plus free shipping to the far away place that is their CD player.
