4 stars Interesting experiment this one.

The album isn't fully acoustic, as the title may indicate, but the band have gone acoustic on the guitar side of things. And due to that, this album has a unique sound to it, that's for sure.

The songs here are all melancholy, mostly lush affairs; quiet and haunting songs where atmosphere, mood and emotion is brought to the forefront. All instruments are carefully and gently played.

When it comes to style, the mellowest ballads of Marillion and Fish comes to mind as being the closest references here; even if the music isn't closely related the moods and the atmospheres are indeed.

One of the highlights from 2006; and should be checked out by anyone not scared of the thought of listening to acoustic guitar based music.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
