3 stars This was one of the better SI Music releases in the Nineties but in my opinion a bit overlooked. Their sound is a wonderful blend of folk and neo-prog featuring pieces that ranges from dreamy with mandolin, tin-whistle and acoustic guitars to up-tempo with propulsive drums, fiery electric guitar and pleasant keyboards. The vocals have a very distinctive undertone, especially in the more folky tracks they add a very warm dimension. The highlight on this CD is the long composition "Dreamscape Part 1 & 2" (more than 13 minutes) delivering lots of shifting moods, from folky with mandolin, acoustic guitar and tin- whistle to bombastic with fiery electric guitar (evoking Jethro Tull).

IF YOU LIKE FOLKY PROG, THIS ONE IS YOURS!
