4 stars As I wrote on previous reviews, AUTUM BREEZE is a surprising band, they were active in the 70's with only one release and resurrected in the 21st Century, originally to offer us previously unreleased material but then turning into an active band again, and now we have their second original release, a 20 minutes multi part epic recorded in "Yellow Snow Studio - Stockholm" in 2011, the rebirth of an excellent but obscure band and a second chance for excellent musicians.

Since their previous release "The Autumn Band" it was obvious that the 70's hadn't ended for this guys, playing in a style that older Progheads always miss. The only problem was that the albums were a bit simple for the most demanding fans of the genre, but this has changed, "Glimpses From a Lifetime" is a well elaborate album with radical changes and complex music.

The vocals performed by Ragnar Klevman and the peculiar Sara Bergqvist are delightful, while the combination of the talents of multi-instrumentalist Gert Magnusson and pianist Jan Warmqvist provide us of all the Prog we can ask for. But that not all, the addition of William Bellbrandt in the guitar provides that heavy distorted touch reminiscent of guys like Mick Box from Uriah Heep, creating a wonderful nostalgic feeling on all of us who search for this kind of music since childhood, a sound that usually we can only find buying albums released 3 or 4 decades ago.

The only minor flaw I find is the production, which in my opinion is a bit rough, but I'm here to talk about music, not about technical issues, and the music of AUTUMN BREEZE deserves no less than 4 solid stars.

I just hope the next time they release a full studio album, because this EP has left me with the taste of honey in the lips and asking for more.
