Review by BrufordFreak
COLLABORATOR Heavy Prog & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
5 stars Another gem of prog folk music from Germany's folk masters, FAUN. Upon first listen I found some definite high points, but after repeated listens I've come to love this entire album. Not quite as good as their masterpieces, Eden (2011) and Totem (2005), but back to that level (after 2013's disappointing Von den Elben). The spectrum of emotions this album takes one through is nothing short of remarkable. From nostalgia to haunted fear, celebratory joy to bitter sadness, the power of mutual support to the despair of isolation, there is nary an emotion left untouched. The romantically rhythmed vocal ensemble piece "Cuncti Simus" is my absolute favorite.

Five/4.5 star songs: "Cuncti Simus" (3:56); "Hörst du die Trommein" (3:23); "Walpurgisnacht" (3:50); "Buntes Volk" (4:17); "Menuett" (4:57); "Hekate" (4:16); "Blaue Stunde" (4:36); "Frau Erde" (4:29); "Die Lieder Werden Bleiben" (3:19), and; "Era Escuro" (3:33).

Another five star masterpiece of prog folk from Germany's folk masters.

Review by Warthur
4 stars On Luna, Faun play a style of neo-medieval "ren faire" folk with rock influences, not unreminiscent of the likes of Blackmore's Night. Tight songwriting ensures that the album and individual songs do not outstay their welcome, and classy production values make this a nicely accessible release. Is it especially authentically medieval? No, not at all, but it's a very fun album which hits just the right spot if you are in the mood for something with a suitably witchy flavour to listen to of a dark Walpurgisnacht when your familiar is stretched out purring in front of the fire and the snow's beginning to fall.
