Prog Reviewer
3 stars A wonderful album, but hardly essential in my book. There are far better albums, but nevertheless GOTIC is no way an average band. Imagine CAMEL gone more Canterburish than ever, without Latimer’s signature guitar, but with stunning keyboardist, virtuoso flute player and fiery rhythm section. GOTIC is Jazz-leaned indeed, but they never fall into jams or Avant-form Jazz stuff, they are very enjoyable, even easy-listening to some concern. They have no Prog Andaluz features (at least, I haven’t noticed anything “Spanish” about this album), but they are very melodic-gifted in their own way (just listen to the closing tune of “Historia d'Una Gota d'Aigua”, album’s 10-min long highlight). Recommended for those who wants something interesting and obscure from 70s in Fusion/Symphonic style – you won’t be disappointed.
