5 stars Maybe the best Rennaissance album, and one of the best in Prog-Rock in my opinion. Side 1 contains 3 songs only, but they are all top class! My favourite here is 'Trip to the fair'. Side 2 contains the 24-minute long epic 'The song of Scheherazade'. The story from '1001 nights' 'dressed' with very beautiful melodies, and Annie's angelic voice of course... Many were comparing this album with 'Turn of the cards'. My second most beloved album from Renaissance. But that one has one small problem. Does not contain 'Scherazade'! :P (Although it contains 'Cold is being', another amazing song. Which is Albinoni's 'adagio' actually, but with lyrics). I don't want to write more, because many before me have already have writen great reviews. I will put 4.5 stars on this one... :) (If anyone wants pls visit: I'm doing big efforts to set up a friendly blog mostly about Rock music, and a few other stuff as well. I would love to have readers like you!) Thank you. :)
