4 stars An impressive acoustic work, and an easy start to listen to this dutch guitar god. This is not prog, so my four stars are for the music only. There are jazzy passages here, even New Age moments. You can also find here some pieces of Focus (in Suite nš2) and of his solo work, like Tranquillizer (with Kaz Lux originally) and the second part of the Suite nš 1 (Wildflower, from Focus In Time). Whatever, this album is full of fine moments, although very few tracks are composed by Jan Akkerman; but his features in songs like Bach's Passion (by San Matteo) and the well-known Classical Gas (which was mixed by Jan Akkerman with one song of his 1977's album, Gate to Europe), composed by William Mason, are really superb.

Highly recommended to classic guitar lovers, and who enjoy the soft and relaxing music.
