5 stars this time I answered "Yes" to the "Do you really want to give ****** review" prompt :-)

What everyone else says.

If you liked any of the following albums

Harmonium - SI ON AVAIT BESOIN D'UNE CINQUIÈME SAISON Celeste - PRINCIPE DI UN GIORNO PFM - Storia Di Un Minuto Trader Horne - The Morning Way


then this album is a no-brainer :-)

Hard for me to believe that this day and age that an album as great as this can possess all of the same pastoral beauty as the others listed above do (as you'd think all of the great ideas had already been done).

But it most certainly does.

this now has become a new addition to my favorite "top-10 most pastoral sounding prog albums".

Released in 2011 but it could easily pass as a classic pastoral prog release in 1972. That should give you an idea that there are no modern-sounding cliches.

When I hear pure pastoral beauty in an album like this, I think of how much work/effort the musicians put into creating this work of art that will remain timeless forever. And I think of how they may make very little to no money for this gem. And then I'm reminded that Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga make tens of millions of dollars doing their corporate backed albums that contains songs that have the same exact 1-2 chords over and over with a drum machine along with lyrics that refer to tweets and twitters and material things and the love of money and power.

this is the Van Gogh of music. It won't sell much as the masses won't listen to it. But 50-100 years from now, people will listen to this and go "Wow!!!" (which is more than I can say for a Gaga/Bieber (or anyone who appears on American idol or backed by the US top 40)).
