4 stars If you like country and Celtic music beside progressive rock, this band is for you. TEMPEST plays a kind of progressive folk blending these styles, adding some KANSAS influences.

Mandolas and violins are generously used with interesting percussion rythms and, while the cd sounds, listener can be transported to an old Western "saloon" or to a mountaineers party (do you remember "The Beverly Hillbillies" music?) or, suddenly, melodies can be pure Celtic folk or more progressive a la KANSAS.

The album includes some instrumental funny pieces ("Top of the Hill", "Jenny Nettles" and "The Sleeping Highlander") and a couple of ballads that remember the Cat Stevens style (specially "A Kiss in the Morning Early"), but the highlight is the absolutely progressive gem "The House Carpenter".

"The 10th Anniversary Compilation" is a very nice prog folk album. Recommended.
