5 stars This is one of the very best albums of all time and in my personal top three. Vocalist Gilli Smyth, she of the space whisper from Gong, tells three fairy tales, and the band supplies the necessary moods to these tales with their music. Everything about it is just right - the way Gilly Smyth tells the tales, the way the band follows every twist of the tales and makes the images appear before your eyes, and above all an almost supernatural Ddier Malherbe on flutes and saxes. Whether he illustrates the tunes the Pied Piper plays on his flute (you would have followed him too!), imitates the sounds of rats, lets a frog croak, dogs bark, or sends Wassilissa flying over a landscape - he is always perfect. Not that the rest of the band are slouches, but Didier Malherbe just outshines them all. Oh, and this album is also the very best if you want to get your little kids interested in prog. It is the favorite album of our kids Dorothy and Alice (both age 6). Don't hesitate, buy it now!
