4 stars One of the best albums of 2005.

Willowglass is all instrumental and reminds me of early seventies prog like Mike Oldfield and Anthony Phillips. There are not many catchy melodies here, but rather dreamy and mellow atmospheric soundscapes with a feel of improvisation. However, this is not ambient in the sense of background music. It's intense and skillfully performed. When it comes to the overall experience of the album I must say that there aren't much to complain about, but to point out one negative thing it has to be that it appears as a bit too cautious and laid- back. As for the style, I'm happy every time I find an album in this genre of prog ("suggestive and epic instrumental prog"?). Anyway, I might be crazy not to award this five stars but I'm still hoping for the true masterpiece from this artist. I'm sure it will come!
