3 stars Well the present CD was a surprise in the period of its issue, above all regarding of this strange mix of a symphonic music (sometimes simplistic)- tinged with the Canterburian tones- which makes this product diverse and quite interesting too. Ok you think of the band Cerubus Effect from Baltimore, but the main leader is always in search of a certain complexity in the arrangements, even though the drums performance is not the best feature to be remarked here!! At the end it's an interesting project by Dan Britton (playing the keyboards, especially the Mellotron, as well as the guitars) being involved also in the jazz tones (do you remember the immediate jazz arrangements regarding for example the albums by Hatfield and The North?).

Ok this cd probably doesn't reach the peak of inspiration like that unique one within "Rotter's Club" by H. & The North, but it's never an emulating sample of the seventies, being quite original too!!

So you could also add an half star at least- in your evaluation!!

Post scriptum: A special mention for the pretty cover picture of this album dated 2006!!
