3 stars SLEEPY HOLLOW is a US three-piece band that was formed back in 1999, and in the 12 years since they have issued various recordings limited in one way or another while awaiting the possibility to record and release an album in the manner they really wanted. Come 2010 and that album was actually finalized, a double CD featuring tracks made in the band's earliest incarnations and pieces written in the following years as well as numbers crafted on the spot while recording this disc. "Legend" is the name of this production.

Many years in the making and featuring compositions from the earliest to the latest days of the just over decade-long life of this band, "Legend" is an ambitious creation obviously made with a great deal of effort and passion. It's an eclectic production, with one foot firmly placed in early 70's heavy art rock and the other somewhere inside the folk rock universe, with a few brief detours towards chamber music territories. Quality-wise this one will be very much up for discussion; personally I found the lead vocals lacking and some compositions felt unfinished and slightly awkward-sounding in places. Most tracks also feature engaging and charming themes and motifs, and I'd guess that those who generally tend to like vintage heavy rock from the art rock territories will be swayed by the charming and passionate aspects of this release. Not a perfect album by any means, but one that will find its way into the hearts of music lovers despite, or perhaps because of, just that.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
