4 stars Well you should have to erase an half star, as for the lack of true creativeness, but their melodic sense and such a tasteful approach as well, make this album well worth checking out at least... above all when they are facing the Biblic "Seven Sins" (one for each song), they will be appreciated definitively as an excellent ensemble, because the ingenuousness of their debut album is not present anymore, especially by deserving those simple but effective harmonic solutions which begin to emerge,being absolutely satisfactory.Well They have never been pretentious within such a difficult "narration" and moreover their tunes remind me of some pretty symphonic compositions by Renaissance with Annie Haslam!! Their full maturity is almost reached here,as there is no virtuosity, but anyway the vocalism of Christina is always remarkable and essential too,for the purpose of keeping the concept under They don't need any intricate tune in order to show their good talent, and for me that's enough!!"Anger" is around 5 minutes and quite simple;instead all the other tracks are longer (average duration: about ten minutes) and anyway well structured and arranged,also by means of their remarkable musicality...check it out!!
