4 stars Another warm-hearted melodic prog.

I became a fan of this band just by 20 seconds as the flute and guitars were so beautiful as CAMEL as everybody says. Even vocals sound like Andy Latimer to me. If they were CAMEL wanna-be, they succeeded.

They say it was recorded in 1982, but the record sound was rather good. This is also an advantage of German rock bands. The main instruments' sound are very clear and it suites if you are digital player listener.

You may need more solid, or harder parts in prog rock, but this kind of soft melodic will heal you at night, and this is the reason why I love these prog music.

4 ratings with no hesitation.
