3 stars FLAIRCK are a Prog-Folk band out of The Netherlands. They use acoustic instruments including bass, violin, guitars and flute. No drums on this one.

"Oost-West Express" opens with an intricate guitar melody as violin joins in then flute. Bass follows then it settles before 2 minutes. It kicks back in as contrasts continue. Good song except for the final minute. "De Vlander" is more of the same but I like when it gets brighter before 4 1/2 minutes. Great section. "Voor Antoinette" is a short piece filled with acoustic guitar. "De Stoomwals" opens with acoustic guitar then flute and violin join in. The tempo picks up then the bass becomes prominant. It settles back after 3 minutes but not for long.

"Gevecht Met De Engel I" is upbeat to start then it settles with violin, flute and acoustic guitar. It settles down even more as the tempo continues to shift. Great section around 7 minutes. Part II is dominated with acoustic guitar early until after 4 minutes when the violin comes in. Flute after 6 minutes. Part III opens with acoustic guitar before flute and violin arrive after a minute. The tempo picks up 2 minutes in.

Good album but i'm just not into this style of music.
