5 stars I have rated this album five stars some weeks ago, but now I feel like writing a review to support my rating and to spread the word: this album simply is a masterpiece ! The trio is from France, actually the northwestern part of it. The point has its importance because we're talking about celtic area, and indeed I think there are some celtic influences to the music. Other influences are clearly prog classics, and being an avid listener of Pink Floyd or Yes I can pinpoint places where the influence is blatant. However the bulk of the album is more eclectic than that, and often, the arrangements are simply breathtaking. This is also a strongly melodic album, with finely chiseled tunes that give me goosebumps. All the instruments are nicely mastered and some guitar solos are very inspiring. Now for the vocals: the female singer really brings an ethereal presence to the album, she has a really different voice. I understand this may be disturbing to some people accustomed to classical prog voices, but for me it is just beautiful, a real achievement. In conclusion this is one of the very best albums of 2010, and considering this is a debut album I think it really deserves five stars.
