4 stars I tend to consider Maašet to be the high water mark of Tenhi's dark folk output, and Saivo doesn't do anything to overturn that impression - it's quality dark folk material of the standard we've come to expect of them, but it's at their usual (but consistently decent) level rather than going above and beyond like Maašet did.

That isn't to say that the release is entirely interchangeable with what came before, mind. There's a certain epic sweep and a sense of the cinematic here - like this is the album Tenhi really, really hope some Hollywood producer notices so that they can get some soundtrack work going. It isn't enough to push the album into mercenary sellout territory, but it is enough to give it a distinct flavour of its own which at least reassures the listener that Tenhi's musical development has not altogether ceased.

Warthur | 4/5 |
