4 stars This is the all-instrumental debut album by talented multi-instrumentalist Andrew Marshall who lives in deepest, darkest Yorkshire. If you want to know what's inside, just take a look at the gorgeous artwork by Lee Gaskins, who is also responsible for the artwork on the Pilgrym CD ... a young woman in medieval dress sits beneath a gnarled tree in a lush green meadow, gazing dreamily into the distance ... with foxgloves, birds and butterflies ...

If you like classic 1970's English style prog then this could well be your next favourite album. The style ranges from Camel, early Genesis, with even a few nods to Floyd, and some fantastic soaring Latimer & Hackett-style electric guitar solos. The mellotron features throughout but never dominates. Highly recommended to those who like the English pastoral style of Anthony Phillips' The Geese & the Ghost.

WARNING!! it may be way too gentle and melodic for some ... but for those who want to wind down at the end of a busy day or to have elegant, soothing mood music to revive your weary soul and lift your heavy spirits ... try this one out and whilst your at it, buy a bottle of mead to be served chilled with sweet cakes and dainties ... Mmmmmm !
