Of the three albums I have heard by this charming little Folk group, this one is the most interesting one. This music is purely acoustic Folk with lovely melodies and sweet harmonies. The 20 plus minute suite that gives this album its title is the definitive highlight of the album and possibly of the band's whole career. While not a Prog epic by any means, this is a quite nice suite alternating between instrumental passages with flutes and some other folky instruments and melodious vocal passages. There is no doubt about the group's talents!

The second side is slightly less effective but follows in the same soft Folk style. It must be emphasised again that there are no drums, bass or electric guitars on this album ensuring that this music completely lacks the Rock aspect. This music is sweet and exceptionally easy on the ear and as such it does not offer very much challenge for the Prog fan. However, many Prog fans would probably be able to enjoy this to some degree, I know I do. Fantasia Lindum is a good and charming progressive Folk album (i.e. not a progressive Rock album). This is recommended, but hardly essential unless you have a special interest in this particular kind of music. If you are checking out Amazing Blondel, this is the right place to start.
