5 stars Next yer after Visionary , 1977 Giltrap releases his masterpiece in my view, Perilous journy. This is my fav GG album and the most inventiv album I've hered from him. Much more progressive from previous work, not to mention from his folky period, this Prilous journey is an essntial album if anyone wants to listen to grandious arrangements, with blistering guitar parts and top notch keyboards. No weak moments here, each piece show great potential, smooth and elegant passages, like on Pastoral, Heartsong or Cascade, all are superb. The guitar parts are more then excellent, showing how versatile Giltrap was in that period, all instrumental album, mature and complex in same time. I had real enjoyble moments listning to this release. In this time he become very well known and popular amomg prog fans, that's why he had some spectacular and well recived concerts opening for giants such as Renaissance or Cravan. Because the line up was the same as on previous work and aswell on next one, is easy to observe thet all musicians involved here done a strong job, they interlude very well and they play with pleasure each note. One of my fav albums ever not only from him but in general, this is elegant music that every serious prog fan must discover. Recommended for sure, brilliant from start to finish. 5 stars without hesitation
