2 stars Automatically drawn to this album some time ago because of mr.Gee's membership of the neoprog giants Pendragon I nevertheless knew it wasn't going to be a predictable success. And this is because I also own the predecessor Vision of Angels which was ultimately a slight disappointment only saved by the highlight Always.

So I knew I was heading for dangerous territory and looking at the album title I was possibly heading for disaster. And alas that appeared to be the case in the end I'm afraid. At this very moment the album still had an average of 4.29 due to 7 ratings without review. Hmm....

Unfortunately Peter Gee is only occasionally able to produce an excellent track. At least for my personal taste that is of course. I was blown away by the first I ever heard from him which was from a sampler and that song was Crying on the inside. Boy, I wish he did all his tracks like this. Superb guitar and neo prog of the highest calibre. On Vision of Angels this great track was as I mentioned Always, again thanks to brilliant guitar and great keys. On this very album the by far best track is A matter of the Heart with, you guessed it: once again some great guitar.

But other than this sole effort there's not much to enjoy for me here. Like I usually say: one great song can't save a whole album. The rest of the songs is obviously for the faint- hearted/sensitive kind of music lovers amongst us. All about religion and love, nothing wrong with that objectively but not my cup of tea. I hope Peter Gee will be able to make an album with just a bunch of great songs on it but if he continues like this The Spiritual World will be my last purchase from him. Two stars is the verdict (2,5).
