3 stars Another good release with a fantastic voice and non-obtrusive guitar, mainly acoustic, sometimes electric. This music is intended for calm and non-challenging listening and the purpose is fulfilled well. Cover songs could be disposed off and I would welcome more renaissance oriented music such as "Fayre thee well" in all its acoustic instrumental beauty.

Increasing Celtic influence is audible throughout the album as manifested on the title track with a good melody and breath-taking electric guitar solo. "The storm" is another highlight with its appealing melody and acoustic guitar runs. If you listen closely, you will find some winter-oriented tracks which makes it suitable for pre-Christmas listening.
