4 stars Nice surprise - really strong debut of this Greek band! Even if music is something we know for years, it doesn't sound boring, or cloned too much to be criticized.

Very melodic, with strong folklore (mostly English, not Greek) influence, music is kind of contemporary symphonic prog. Without darkness, but with Mediterranean sunny soul, warm and light music really can attract wide range of listeners.

Female vocals are very competitive and pleasant, and all sound is more than well balanced. Musicianship is complex enough (in symphonic prog genre's traditions), but it is no way complexity because of complexity. Everything is combined under the sign of Harmony, and it not so often case in modern prog! In many moments songs remind best Renaissance work, just more modern, and with touch of warm Greek weather instead of cloudy rainy England.

It's really nice to realize there are new bands working in symphonic prog-folk with big potential and original point of view. Album, recommended for listeners searching for great modern releases of symphonic prog-folk, and neo-prog as well.
