3 stars The first Jeremy album I ever listened to was pretty bad so I had no hopes when I put this album in my CD player. I soon discovered that I was wrong.

In cases like Celestial City, it is great to be proven wrong. This album is a showcase of understated, but still a big sound music. It is based on Jeremy's guitars in addition to tangents. What really sticks out on Celestial City is Jeremy's guitar solos. They are simply awesome. If you are a budding guitarist, this is one of the albums you should get. Then listen & learn. The rest of can just try to collect our jaws again from the floor. Which is not easy.

The music is still based in new age music and symphonic prog aka Camel and Enid. The music is floating around without offering any contrasts or texture. Which is exactly my main gripe with this album. This album is like a bird without teeth. Hence it is not an excellent addition to anyone's else than a budding guitarist's collection. But the music here is still good and it is a very relaxing album, excellent for late nights or the catnap after coming home from work. I struggle to fully keep my attention on this album though. Seventy-three minutes is twenty minutes too much for this type of albums. Hence my stars.
