3 stars This album is pleasant, but slight. Which was also a good description of their first album. However, this is easily the inferior product. The title epic from Four Moments was in some ways one of the best constructed symphonic prog epics ever - not overly ambitious, not overly complex, but with sections that flowed seamlessly and an overall sense of unity. The title epic of Windchase completely lacks this quality. The music listlessly moves from one moderately interesting section to another, with no real feeling of unity, despite the late and half-hearted attempt at a rhythmically-transformed recapitulation of the original theme. The second side contains one cheesy pop song in "Life Love and Music" (this time Paul McCartney's Wings seem to have displaced Air Supply as their chief pop influence), and several slight instrumentals. It's not a bad record, but it's not an exciting one either.
