4 stars So I get to write a 'first' review! A joy here, because this is a favourite album of mine. I bought it when it first came out, being a huge Focus fan and having bought and enjoyed Profile. It's really a strange mixture, with Side One being almost exclusively late Renaissance lute music. Brittania has been worked out a litle and drums/orchestra added to the lute piece - another interesting addition to the rock/classical fusion which yields pleasant results. House of the King is a strange re-arrangement which is an interesting take on the original but not am improvement. The outstanding tracks are Javeh and Lammy, an extended piece with a variety of sections featuring Church Organ, Swiss Cow Bells, Electric Sitar, String Quartet and Church Choir singing Alleluia. An album to be highly recommended alongside Profile even if you may find yourself selecting your favourite tracks rather than playing this end to end.
