5 stars I bought this CD based on the recommendations here. I was afraid that I'd be disappointed, but... oh boy....

Just make sure you do NOT judge this amazing group on the first song. Loafer Jack is in itself a reasonable folk-influenced song, but it is nothing special. The rest though sounds like a fantastic blend of Genesis, Camel and Marillion. On most tracks the singer indeed sounds like a clone of Peter Gabriel, although in some tracks I'm reminded more of Fish (who came to prominence after this band recorded this album). Really exquisite flute playing (reminding me of Camel's Andy Latimer more than Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson), great keyboards, overall good amd some really outstanding compositions. I do not hand out 5 stars easily, but this is an album that every prog lover should at least listen to. And if you love Seventies' Genesis and Camel, you sure will love this.

PS: I was able to get mine very quickly from a Dutch internet shop for a reasonable 18.50 euro. Send me (Dragon Phoenix) a message if you want to know where I got it.
