3 stars Melancholic lullabies and inner dreams

This is a very nice little, almost entirely instrumental, guitar dominated album. Giltrap is a very good guitarist and he plays primarily acoustic, but also some electric, guitars. Other instruments like drums, bass, piano, keyboards and violin complement the sound as well as female vocals on one track. The album is very well crafted and the pieces are perfectly recorded and produced. Giltrap's guitar style is mostly a bit gentler than those of Steve Howe and Steve Hackett, for example. Perhaps Mike Oldfield is a good reference point, in his acoustic and most technical moments.

The music is mostly quite inoffensive but never dull. Titles like Melancholy Lullaby and Inner Dream describe the music quite well even if some parts are not very melancholic at all. The moods and feelings shift and the feel of the music often remind me of Anthony Phillips' albums. It is somehow innocent and fragile.

The title track is the hardest rocking number and perhaps also the most progressive piece on this album. However, this is not music that will take the Prog fan by storm. But I'm sure that many Prog fans can find some enjoyment in it.

Good, but non-essential.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Another year passing by and another worthy album from this underated but in same time excellent guitarist and composser. Fear of the dark from 1978 is almost in same elague with previous 2 album, better then Visionary but little less inventive as Perilous in my opinion. Beggining by saing that the line up is the same as on previous two album, that means solid musicianship and damn fine moments overall. Again some passages are impressive like on Innera dream, Nightrider or Fast aproaching. If the previous 2 albums were entirely instrumental, on this one appers Shirlei Roden on Weary eyes a beautiful melacholical track. Again he was able to combine in great manner symphonic parts with acustical and electric resulting some fine moments. Mike Oldfield can be proud of such competitor in late '70s, both were at their peak of their career, similar one to each other in musical terms very much. The gentle, intelligent passages showing that Giltrap was and is one of the most respect guitarist ever. Orchestrations are grandious as always with memorable passages. Well, I can say that this is my second fav album from them after masterpiece Perilous journey. 4 stars easy and recommened another worthy album from him.

4 stars Gordon's third album in three years brings to a close the set that is often viewed as a trilogy, with the same key musicians and producers as on the previous two. The major difference here was with the songwriting, as although there are plenty of solo writes on this album, there are also some which are credited to Gordon and keyboard player Rod Edwards. Due to issues at home, Gordon decided that they needed to have somewhere to write so they rented a house in the country to do just that. Apparently this is a practice that he stills continues to this day, as he found it so relaxing to have a totally different atmosphere.

The original 8 songs have now been extended to 15, including some TV themes that were released as a single (The Waltons works really well), so there is now well over an hour of music with Gordon showing again that he is at home on electric as he is on acoustic. "Weary Eyes" is a delight with wonderful orchestration, great piano, a warm fretless bass, sympathetic drums and a choir. Who could ask for more? These three albums cemented Gordon's reputation as a performer of the highest order, yet he has still never really gained the acclaim that he should have. I don't believe that he has ever released a poor album (even his Christmas album is listenable) and these reissues by Esoteric with bonus songs makes this a great time to investigate his music.
