2 stars Dragonfly is a classic folk album with its ups (only a few) and downs. It is a collection of peaceful music which sounds too similar to be very exciting I'm afraid. The only above average song from the first part of this album is the melodic Josephine.

The cello work is pleasant and adds a definite value to the whole of this album, but it can't avoid some sort of boredom while one listens to these conventional folk songs. Vocal harmonies are quite decent but the overall mood is too much of a pastoral party to match my taste.

One has to wait The Vision Of The Lady Of The Lake to finally discover an excellent song. A vibrant crescendo song which offers the occasion to discover a more upbeat rhythm and rocking sound. It is by far the best moment of music which is available on this album which doesn't leave a great impression to my ears.

The very short closing number Close Your Eyes (and go to sleep) is the best shortcut to this album. Two stars.
