3 stars The only album of Moongarden's that I have heard so I can't compare it to anything else, but I was intruiged by it and quite glad I listened in, in the end.

Interesting that someone else has mentioned they don't like the artwork, I love it, and yes it's overblown, but it's Prog Rock, it's supposed to be overblown.

The album itself is patchy as has been pointed out previously, best bits are the big old prog rock wall of sound balled It's You and the nice calm, Flesh.

The opener My Darkside is good, but stays beyond it's welcome in the end a bit of judicious editing would probably have improved the album no end.

Of the other tracks Solaris, Sonja in Search of the Moon and The Lighthouse Song are the best, the others I found a bit directionless and never really hit any point with me.

Gog/Magog | 3/5 |
