3 stars This was the 3rd album by Egdon Heath and it's very much unlike the first two. I also know the 4th and that one is also different from the first three so that's at least something Egdon Heath has managed to do in their career, they made 4 entirely different albums and that both goes for sound as well as for compositions. I always had a soft spot for Egdon Heath and even saw them a few times live but that was mainly because it's a Dutch band and they especially did their gigs in their own country but I am glad I had the opportunity, I had a good time during the gigs. But I never went overboard by them, it's a good band but not exceptional.

This 3rd album has also it's 3rd lead vocalist, this time Maurits Kalsbeek had the opportunity to show his skills. I think he did fine but I don't think he was better than Jens van der Stempel (Killing Silence). Highlights of the album are Gringo and Thousand Stories, two very nice compositions and the other two fine efforts are Jinc and Satellite. The rest of the songs don't really impress me that much and that's the reason I will have to be the fourth person to give this 3 stars (3,2).
