4 stars What a charming music ! Each of these five pieces is a long song (13, 9, 12, 8 and 11 minutes respectively) based on a finely conceived melody, elaborate harmonies and subtle musical developments.

This music is clearly more neoprog than symphonic rock, but it's neoprog with a lot of symphonic moments and colours : piano arpeggios (with a reference to Genesis in the end of "Fridge full of stars"), some classical strings here, a delicate flute chorus there...

I don't know what these musicians did before ? They look experimented. The musicianship is quite good. There is no real virtuosity but everythng is perfectly in order. John Young has a nice, original and never failing voice. The music flows, never boring, often crossing enchanting landscapes.

Simply beautiful ! Next work has chances to be brilliant. I would give between 4 and 4,5 stars to this former and full of promises recordings.

Kjarks | 4/5 |
