4 stars Before i start i just want to say..this is a great great great album, i think it just may be the greatest album released by an Irish band ever, its not without the odd flaw of course but that really doesnt matter as there are few and far between. Its just a very creative and exciting album, especially one that an Irish band has done, it kinda reminds me of a more trad version of Camel mixed with classic Tull, hmm an epic mix i know. It starts off with the brilliant theme thats played throughout the first movement DAYBREAK, its then repeated at the end with DARK, other favourites in this movement is the very folky TROUBLE (WITH A CAPITAL T), THE POWER AND THE GLORY, and SWORD OF LIGHT, the instrumentals are fantastic throughout this entire album as well, the whole second movement is amazing as is the most part of the 3rd with the fantastic instrumental SIDEWAYS TO THE SUN being one of the major songs to check out. This really is one awsome album to check out, especially if your a fan of folk rock or folk metal;

Daybreak - 9/10 March into Trouble - 9/10 Trouble with A Capital "T" - 10/10 The Power And The Glory -10/10 The Rocks Remain- 9/10 Dusk - 9/10 Sword of Light - 9/10 Dark - 9/10 Warm Sweet Breath Of Love - 9/10 Fantasia - My Lagan Love - 9/10 King Of Morning, Queen Of Day - 9/10 Sideways To The Sun - 10/10 Drive The Cold Winter Away - 8/10 Ride To Hell - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? pick this album up, i cant really say too many bad things about it, its great..
