1 stars Sorry but I'm very disappointed about it!! I think of their best album "Retreat", talking about such splendid instrumentals like "Breakfast at Tyffany's", and now I can't believe it!! Has this recent album been issued by the same band?!? The present album consists of 14 very tepid songs, lacking of the flute and of the whole sound of "Light Canterbury" as well...moreover here They alternatebanal melodies to the old (a very few ones) pleasant atmospheres, but my opinion doesn't change at all, I'm very disappointed about it!!

Therefore I don't understand whether it is their nostalgia concerning their comeback to a Recording Studio or the intention to get fun with an easier and easier stuff!! I don't know the reason but it never minds, cause the light sound of Canterbury will be in my opinion always represented by their best album "Retreat" or by "MoonMadness" by Camel, without forgetting other important issues like those ones by Recordando O Vale Das Macas or other SouthAmerican "Canterburian" bands.

Try other light (but more clever) stuff concerning this genre!!
