5 stars I absolutely love N'monix. One can say it's not terribly innovative or risk-taking and so on, and they'd be right. It's not.

Instead, it's one of the best descendants of the 1970's epic British prog and it carries that tradition on brightly and warmly. I'm something of a romantic, so the open emotion and quiet beauty of the album speak to me strongly. Especially the short guitar/choir piece Shadowland is extremely moving - it's music I'd like to be played in my funeral (hopefully not very soon though!). And that's a positive compliment, mind you :)

So, not necessarily progressive in the strictest sense of the word but as excellent an album as you might wish for in its slightly retro genre. Thank you, Mr Magnus.
