4 stars Genesis ex-guitarist (and founding member) debut solo album. Phillips plays different strings, keyboards and even sings, Phil Collins and Mike Rutheford participated in some compositions as well.

This album is very atmospheric, a bit melancholic, predominantly strings based. With very strong medieval music influence, and some early Genesis moments in it as well. Mostly instrumental, down tempo, it builds fragile and beautiful atmosphere of ancient worlds. Very tasteful, it associates for me with knights and castles more, than with England's seventies.

I am not a big fun of symphonic prog, and Genesis as well, but this album is in big part what I like in early Genesis: possibly a bit out of this world, acoustic dreamy melancholic beauty.

Very competent album, should attract early Genesis fans and everyone with love to modern versions of medieval music.

Three and half really.
