4 stars This album is divided in two, the first part contain three songs. They are are very nice, with the exception of Ocean Gypsy(#3), which is a great song with cool singing from Annie Haslam. But the real diamond here is Scheherazade, which is a multi-part suite. Long, complex and heavily influenced from classical music. Annie is in top shape here, her vocals are amazing, she is a great singer with beautiful voice.

I think side 1 is mostly a waste, only one song worth the trouble. But Scheherazade is a Masterpiece which worth acquiring the album alone, a great addition to any prog collection. I give it 4/5 only because of the first 2 songs.

BlindGuard | 4/5 |
