2 stars Hats off for the instrumental tracks. The rest is more of the same: they do a decent but uninspiring cover of an old Ritchie piece (the beautiful Rainbow eyes from LLRnR), another pop cover (now with a mid tempo rhythm) and... nothing new. After three really good albums I believe the formula exhausted and Ritchie just keep releasing "new" albums for Candice's sake and for the road that always follows a new release.

Can't understand why this album (almost on pair with the weaker TVL) is so well rated and UaVM (their best along with the first one IMO) is reviewed so bad. Maybe my stomach can't take more cheese than Ghost of a Rose.

Just have to wait for the release of Autumn Sky in Brazil. I won't import their new album this time after two failures in a row. Sorry, Ritchie, I love you and hope your inspiration came back (maybe a whole instrumental album?). BTW listen to what Sting made with John Dowland songs and think about the excess of poppiness that is destroying your project. Maybe one or two doses of lute music can bring all the Renaissance magic back to BN. Forget the people that go to "Renaissance fairies" and focus on the ones that listened to real Renaissance music but still enjoy their old rock'n'roll.

A true fan of yours.
