2 stars I will rate purely on mathematical scale instead of the words used by our great site to describe the point of acquiring the cd : 2 out of 5 or 40% . This is mostly because I must say that I did not get into this album or the sound of it. i generally give a good ear to groups coming out of Sweden (as this country is emotionally charged for me - musically speaking but at one time also woman-wise) except for pure neo groups like Galleon and Twin Age.

This group has nothing it can offer me like alot of the bands that put out a cd in those years and sounded a bit like Zello and did not have that typical melancholy that we all love from ANGLANDOTENKADUSBERLAGARD (are you sure you're following me?) . This comes from a definitely harder edged that you can see in Valinor's Tree, Book Of Hours and so. But what this makes me think of the most is Kansas , most likely and unsurprisingly because of the violin and the way it is used and the powerfull huge sounding rythm section and powerchords from the guitar. It is too bad because I would have loved to hear a Swedish group with a violin (outside the folk realm) , maybe it would sound tooooooo melancholic but it should be tried.

To come back to the stars awarded , I can fully admit missing the point of this album (and if you like Kansas this could be enjoyable for you) but I did rate 40 % and not for collectors only.
