5 stars A Mellotron Classic!

After the eighties neo prog scene subsided and turned into a more sophiscated brand or 'art pop' we really needed a band to remind us of what the original symphonic prog experience. However this is no imititation. Anglagard draw very heavily on their Scandanavian folk heritage and there is never one moment here that reminds me of seventies prog. A puzzle within a conundum within a paradox. New music that reflects the old.

Nothing here is rushed. The atmosphere is allowed to build slowly and the compositions and playing are as tight as a bell. No slackness just beautifull playing throughout. Superb recording.If you don't have this in your collection then why not??!
