3 stars By releasing a double CD as their debut album, Morild is clearly stating their intentions.

The music on this album is pretty much straight forward symphonic prog in the vein of Camel and the other greats from the international symphonic prog scene. To this, also add the greats from the Norwegian prog scene from the 1970s. In other words, they are running their ship pretty safe, clear away from any rocks. You get tonnes of hammonds, flutes, guitars and drums. The vocals is also pretty typical understated symphonic prog. In other words; there is nothing here a symphonic prog fan would dislike.

Morild is ticking of all the right boxes. The only box they are not ticking off is the one for "great songs". And this my only gripe with this album. The only remotely great song here is The Slave Ship trilogy at the end of this double album. This is where Morild adds both identity and real quality. The rest of the album is just ticking along nicely........ and just that.

Morild is a band which is clearly very ambitious and brave. They also have the potential to really deliver killer albums. Time To Rest on the other hand is a good middle of the road symphonic prog album which will appeal to fans of this music and just that. Morild are in the process of recording a new album so keep an eye on them.
