2 stars Well. Truly this is symphonic prog.

And symphonic prog in the line of Renaissance oldies.

Yes in comparison to some of their latest .."pop prog albums"....a real advance.

But well years pass....and the product can,t be (or is difficult to be)as good as the ones in the best of times....Scheherazade,Turn Of The Cards,Ashes Are Burning....

Annie Haslam vocals got tired...composition inspiration not as good... instruments playing not so genial...

Mostly all the songs are like opera little arias ....Haslam s voice now is more operaness......but in general boring songs..not inspired...

So some things of the best Renaissance...but don t expect long masterpieces of the old times.

2,5 stars for me.
