4 stars "Flamborough Head" is another very good Dutch band. More on the symphonic side (at least with this album). Emotion sits at every corner of "Unspoken Whisper".

I particularly like the opening song "Schoolyard Fantasy". A personal composition featuring lush keyboards, good rhythm and a pleasant melody. "Childscream" is a great instrumental track. Powerful and solid. If you are into a more melowish mood, "Childscreen" is for you. It is a wonderful and vibrant ballad. Passion, beauty and melody are all here. The perfectly emotional vocals remind me "Grey Lady Down". "Flamborough Head" 's music is not too sophisticated : easily accessible and so enjoyable.

Still, the band is capable to offer more complex numbers like the title track which is one of the highlights from this album. A wall of keyboards sounds, great and melodic vocals are the components of this very good song. Even during weaker numbers (which aren't many), some beautiful passages will remind you that this band is worth listening to (like the flute in "Legend of the Old Man's Tree").

Most of the tracks are appealing to my proghead sense. I am just found of "Xymphonia" and "Heroes" (which is not a cover of whom you might know). A great symph moment. Keys being so impressive, invading, charming... A great instrumental track. Synthetizers are plenty and melodious. Another highlight and a wonderful manner to close this excellent album.

Four stars.
