4 stars An acoustic album by Green Carnation? Hell, why not?!

Each time GC continues to surprise us. After the 2002 one track masterpiece "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness", they gave us the two pretty nice follow up albums "Blessing in Disguise" and "The Quiet Offspring". Although those two albums were a bit more "plane rock albums" rather than progressive masterpieces, with "The Acoustic Verses" they seem to explore a completely different direction again... What a pleasant surprise!

Three long and interesting reviews have already been written about this album, so I will keep it brief. This entire album is really worth it. All songs are good to excellent and if you like acoustic albums and Prog in general this will be the perfect album for you! (Actually this album will also please many people who aren't interested in Prog at all!) The only negative remark I could make is that the album is too short :-( I love the variety in instrumentation very much and am pleased to hear strings like cello, viola and violin on it. The string sections reminisces the "LOD, DOD" album, but now all done in an acoustic setting. I think with "The Acoustic Verses" GC would make a high chance on the title for "Best Acoustic Album of all times"

Together with SYLVAN's "Posthumous Silence" this is my favourite album of 2006!

4.5 stars
