4 stars This is yet again another top-notch album from Steve, who has cons istently produced a fine collection of eclectic and imaginitive albums over the last 11 years (since1999's Dark town).

Whilst past albums from Steve have mixed tracks of different styles and genres, this album goes one step further by mixing styles within the same track on some of the tracks in this album. This was done on Steve's last studio album "Wild Orchids" with the track "Down Street", but this experiment is practiced more so on this album. The best examples of this are "Emerald and Ash", and the flamenco influenced "Nomads".

The production quality is top class, and indicates the advance of technology in recording techniques given that the whole album was recorded in Steve's own living room without the use of conventional recording studio equipment.

There is not a poor track on this album, which although shorter than his last few studio albums, is just as melodic, powerful and rousing.
