3 stars For those who love acoustic guitar outfit inserted with dynamic keyboard work, this album might suit your taste. "Doorway" starts off with nice acoustic guitar fills followed with harmonica that brings the vocal part into the song. Generally the song moves naturally on a rhythm section as the musical bed comprising a combination of sweet acoustic guitar, keyboards and punches of harmonica sounds. Electric guitar also gives its fills in some segments of this mellow track. "Dance Across The Ocean" has more energy than the opening track with more upbeat and faster tempo. The basic ingredients asre similar: acoustic guitar, keyboard plus some piano punches. The piano solo is nice and it's becoming an attraction point of this track. "Everybody wants to rock the boat .." Etc.

"A Sun Of Your Oion" has an ambient nuance with keyboard effects. The piano enters nicely followed with acoustic guitar fills. The combination of these two acoustic instruments make this track is much interesting. "The world is only a playground ." the lyrical part enters the scene. The epic "We Spin The World" (can they, really?) starts wonderfully with piano touch augmented with acoustic guitar and flute-like sounds (it might be produced from keyboard). This is a nice epic which consumes 24 minutes stream of music. This time electric guitar roles are more obvious, overlaid on top of nice chords of piano / keyboard and a bit of mellotron. Piano solo with marching styles of drumming at approx minutes 17 is cool and relaxing, followed with keyboard / synthesizer solo and electric guitar solo.

Can I say this kind of music is something like CROSBY, STILLS, NASH and YOUNG meets neo progressive music? Well, I dunno. But, for sure enjoying this album is a pleasure and relaxing my mind . It's better listening to this album while sitting on the beach. Good album. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
