5 stars I know very well this band, and now after i've listened all their 4 album, i can give my review in a full vision of their whole work. Their style remember a bit Marillion or Pendragon, but very less in this album, and just in the central passage of "Winter in your heart", you can hear the sound a la Marillion, but the band has his own style, that i'll define Baroque Neo progressive, for the brillant arrangements of keybords, and beautiful instrumental passages in the central part of the compositions. The best songs IMHO are: "Le fond du Ciel", that open with a bombastic crescendo instrumental part to end with the voice of the female singer in a mellow way to change again like before and change again, and "Castle on the Sand" driven by a melodic guitar, and by the passionate voice of the singer. The lead singer "Ima" is absolutely fantastic with her emotive, strong and evocative vocals, and her tone of voice fits perfectly with this kind of music. The moods are melancholic, strong, emotive and romantic. This album is a Masterpiece, after many listen, i don't find it borig or dull, 5 full stars
Aragon | 5/5 |
