5 stars Since 1995 I have been haunted by the musical beauty of this Norwegian bands music and since their debut masterpiece have not stopped producing albums of the highest calibre. Without a question, WHITE WILLOW have quietly risen to become one of my personal favourite Prog bands of the 90's and '00's. "Storm Season" definitely builds on this musical lore as a dark album full of brooding symphonic expressions and skilful instrumentation. This album showcases once again the soulful vocals of Sylvia Erichsen which works in great contrast against the darker background soundscape WHITE WILLOW generate. Musically this band have it all with heavy symphonic keyboard work of Lars Fredrik Froislie (piano, mellotron, Hammond B3, Rhodes, Wurlitzer), standout bass lines (Marthe Berger Walthinsen), great guitar (Jacob Holm-Lupo) and (Johannes Saeboe), accurate drumming (Aage Moltke Schou) and a number of additional excellent musicians. A foreboding and highly emotional listen which will definitely need to be in your collection.

Highly recommended album.
