5 stars I am aware that Ashes Are Burning is not the best work from Renaissance, but for me is a perfect masterpiece, and my favorite Renaissance album by far. This is where the classic Renaissance sound was born, and it lasts on practically all of the album, from the first piano notes of Can You Understand? to the last guitar parts of Ashes Are Burning (made by Wishbone Ash guitarist Andy Powell). Annie's virtuosity is at it's top, too. I can't find any lows in this album, it contains pieces that would become complete classic's for the band. I obviously recommend the title track, along with the cheerful Carpet Of The Sun and the folky-symphonic Can You Understand? Definitely Renaissance at its very peak, highly recommended!
