4 stars This album is a sort of mix of symphonic prog and canterbury. Mostly instrumental, you'll hear a load of "la, la, la's" that remind me of the Northettes from Hatfield and the North, hence the canterbury comparison. What makes it such a wonderful album is the sheer originality. Not really sounding a whole lot like anybody, there are snippets of Gentle Giant noodling during "Crifana Y Tamilstenes", but other then that it's really a cool album. My only gripe, tho, is some Godawful caterwauling by the "Mia-ettes" during the title track. I mean it's just plain bad! You have to hear it to catch my drift. Yet don't let that stop you from buying this album. It's wholly original, with some fantastic playing and multiple time signature changing throughout. The last five songs are acoustic guitar played live during some concert in the 70's I gather. Very nice and calming, compared to the album proper. Give these folks a try. A very solid 4.5!
