3 stars This record is in fact a very beautiful one, but certainly nothing very exciting or progressive in a way. For sure reminiscent a bit of MIKE OLDFIELD (but of lower quality I have to say), also not as good as STEVE HACKETT's classical excursions, maybe the closest comparison would be GANDALF (the other Austrian fellow), some of RICK WAKEMAN's weaker more ambient kind of outputs, JON & VANGELIS or KITARO, but merged with some rock elements. It's mainly instrumental music apart of some beautiful pastoral choir, very much keyboard dominated, but as well with some quite good guitar parts. For what it is, that is some romantic "dinner music" for quiet and relaxing moments I'd say it's not a bad album, but don't expect anything interesting and relevant for an advanced Prog listener. Recommended only for lovers of the musicians mentioned above and good for 3 stars!!!
