3 stars I entirely agree with the PA biography from this German band which says "Their music can be described like an hybrid between CAMEL and NOVALIS. Music is very rich, with melodic guitar, flutes ... ) , however , I think which this isn't a balanced album. Because, between the 7 tracks that composed the album, some are exceptional tracks...Like the first track "Skylight" simply brilliant and tracks 3 " Flower in asphalt" with some very different passages and track 6 "Fool's Fantasy" mixing heavy/symphonic and a passage which starts around 1 min 46 sec and follow until 2 min and 46 sec which a certain R I O "mood" ( one of the best tracks of the album), some other tracks are not so good like the second track "Glockenrock" with a percussion passage in the midlle of the track , which in my opinion sounds "out of tune' in relationship to major part of tracks.Anotherr track that don't please me is the track 4 " Le Grand Revier" with a repetitive melody. Although I must make the mention that this album deserves a place in my collection, my rate is only 3 stars - Good but Not Essential !
