4 stars Quite a good album. I have not heard Springsongs or Springtide yet, but this if a good deal better than the debut. The opening epic here is fantastic, featuring very dramatic and interesting music with the addition of some lovely female vocals in the first half. Zuffanti is simply not a good singer, and that is really the only thing that hurts this album. A different vocalist is also used on The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Part II, making that song another highlight of the album. Personally, I quite like this album. It is certainly not "hard prog", or overly complex. But there are some lovely melodies and interesting instrumental parts throughout. Like the previous album, this one is somewhat dreamy and folky, but contains a good deal more symphonic grandure than the first one. Very good album.
