2 stars Ambient symphonic, with clear influences of Pink Floyd (not just in title) Brian Eno, some Camel and kindred soft symphonic bands, but not as good as mentioned bands. Of course this is an album released years after the original writing, and the artist is still enthousiastic about his work, and rightfully so, for despite my low rating it's not all bad.

Some nice melodies and themes run through the mix, but the pace in which the songs develop is a bit too fast, especially the drum sounds rather contrived and high paced. The album is all instrumental, mainly focussing on piano/keyboard melodies, some people may like it, but it really is music light, and some nice melodies can't save this album.

If you like Brian Eno's ambient records of the late 70's and some Camelesque instrumentals, and don't mind some cheese. this album might be interesting, but don't expect similar quality as mentioned bands.
