Review by Warthur
3 stars Cirrus Bay's Whimsical Weather refines the "Genesis-influenced neo-prog with a Renaissance-influenced vocalist" formula which Cirrus Bay had nailed down reasonably effectively on A Step Into Elsewhere. If you were very enthusiastic about that album, you'll probably enjoy this one a lot too, though equally if you disliked it I don't think Whimsical Weather's going to win you over.

In short, more of the same.

The album begins in classic symphonic traditi ... (read more)
