Prog Reviewer
4 stars With just a couple of reviews for this album Cirrus Bay obviously hasn't made a real breakthrough so far. And that's strange because we're talking about high quality prog with this band. First resemblance I notice is to Glass Hammer mainly caused by the female vocals. But I also hear a touch of Thieves Kitchen although an immediate additional remark will have to be made there that Thieves Kitchen likes to play the dissonant style whilst Cirrus Bay plays the 100% harmonic melodic sort of music. Another feature is the laid back mellotron you can hear all the way through. All instruments are handled by skilled musicians by the way.

And this harmonic music is of the soothing kind. If you want to be enchanted for almost an hour this disc is very recommended. It's not highly original or challenging prog but more like wonderful music with a touch of "inventive composition". And since I'm a sucker for this kind of prog I can only give a high rating for A Step into Elsewhere. Not a masterpiece but an excellent addition for most prog collections for sure.
