3 stars I'm still waiting to find their highly praised, legendary LEGEND-album,but after listening to this one I can't tell how disappointed I was. Certainly it has its great moments like in "Black Train", "Scarlett Horses" or "Thought" with awesome flute and violin play, but these are far too sparse on this album. There's too much stuff on like plain and straight folksy psyche pop songs ("Souls Married To The Wind","Stories ", "It's a pity") plus some odd latin grave speaking ("Mrs. Virgin") or just ambient noise ("Frank Supper"). All this doesn't make up an essential album in prog folk let alone a masterpiece. I mean how many pipes you've got to smoke in order to enjoy this album on a whole? "Paradise " is a quite good one as well, so finally there's about 60 % enjoyable outcome from this work if compiling all those songs which is (at least for me) just good enough to give a 3-star rating. As usually the extra bonus songs couldn't do anything to improve my impression (rather the opposite).
