5 stars Now don't think I am biased based on my Wobbler profile pic! It is because of this album that Wobbler rose to become my favorite band. "The Haywain"- A stellar opening to the album. A refreshing medieval style piece with recorder. More to come later in the album! Short piece but doesn't lack beauty.

"Imperial Winter White"- An epic! This song covers a lot of ground in 15 minutes. This is the only track on the album with vocals and there aren't a whole lot. Now I have seen reviews saying the singer (Tony Johannessen) is a weak point but I disagree completely! His theatrical vocals tie together this epic track!

"Interlude" - An absolutely beautiful classical guitar piece! You feel as if Morten Eriksen (Wobbler's guitarist) is playing in the room with you! You can hear his fingers slide across the strings. You can really feel the emotion in this song as well as the rest of the album.

"In Taberna" - Another epic! Another track that covers a range of sounds both soft and melodic and harsh and unsettling. It starts off aggressive and loud. The medieval lull in the middle of the song is powerful and really creates an amazing mood for the rest of the song.

"Armoury" - Ending in similar fashion to the way it started. A brief medieval piece with recorder, crumhorn, and organ. Another memorable song that really closes out the album well.

Overall: I believe this to be Wobbler's best album so far (there others are great too :)). The fact that it was written when they were only teenagers makes it all the more impressive! If you like Anglagard or Gryphon you will like this album.

Cons of this album: Too short!!!! :D
