2 stars May be I am wrong, but after two first BN albums ( and I was very disappointed by them both) I purchase the third one! Yes, you can see now how much I believed in old Deep Purple and Rainbow hero!

Of course, nothing happened. I mean, nothing new, same Castles, same Knights, same Dragons, same medieval ballads. Some new age ( read - refreshment of style) elements, and - same acoustic sweety, same old-fashioned Hats, same light-and-sweet Candice voice. Get bored? Hey, I just started!

To be honest till the end, I think this album is better,then previous one. More different, more focused. But in fact you can take any of them, or just few songs,to make a loop and push "repeat".

May be I'm wrong once again, but for me all this project looks as a family business. Selfsinging,selfplaying,making some savings for later days. I think, it will be better just to open good restaurant somewhere in Blackmore's beloved Germany....

P.S. Another wing of the same family business is " Over The Rainbow" project with old Rainbow guys + Jurgen Blackmore ( yes, Richie's son ) on guitar. With classic Rainbow songs they are traveling around the world - how proggy is it ? Over The Rainbow plays in the middle of October (2009) in my town, do you think I am going to pay for a ticket?
