5 stars How do you classify an album like this. The band themselves have described it as 'melancholic post-rock'. Is it prog, or rock, or even pop? Whatever it is, it is , in my view one of the very best albums of the new millenium!

Its qualities are fairly obvious from the first listening on. There is magnificent, atmospheric mellotron backing; haunting, achingly melodic vocal lines; Petronella's deliciously delicate vocals; unshowy, but very effective and enjoyable musicianship. It is similar at times to Landberk or Anekdoten.Definitely worth 5 stars for sheer quality, even though its prog credentials might be thought suspect by some.
