4 stars It's remarkable that this album gets such a variety of reviews. In my own humble opinion this is the last of the really great albums by Renaissance, the last one on which they showed their unique gift of writing and performing with a classic orchestra. Just listen to the opening track 'Opening out' and you'll know what I mean. It's classic Renaissance, no other band woudl dare to open a album that way. It sets the standard for the rest of the album with 'Day of the dreamer' and the more than superb 'Song for all seasons' as absolute highlights. Most other songs are very, very nice in melody, arrangement and mood. But what really marks this album is probably that it is the first Renaissance album that contains an awful filler: 'She is love' is really, really bad, a dreadful track that is the first shame for Annie Haslam and her company. It should never have been on any album whatsoever. Unfortunately many more bad songs were to come so in an way Song for all seasons marks the end of a great period.

Enjoy it in all its beauty!
