4 stars AMAZING BLONDEL's first 3 album highlights are extensively featured on this fully stocked CD compilation. This pseudo-Elizabethan/Classically based acoustic harmonic trio will take you back several centuries into the jesters court and the kings lair. Their music is fresh, positive, romantic and beautiful with a majestic compliment of delicate instrumentation. Songs are acoustic and are supported by acoustic guitar,lute, tabor pipe, harmonium, harpsichord, mellotron, cittern, glockenspiel, flute, piano, double bass to name just a few. AMAZING BLONDEL's greatest strength lies certainly in their use of harmony and at times the hair will stand up on your arms it is so fine. Standout track for me is their 20 min epic track "Fantasia Lindum" which covers some vast musical territory and sounds so very fresh. Their music is relaxed and highly polished and do as we have been instructed... "tuck in your velvet trousers into your buccaneer boots, pull on a suede jerkin, light the tallow-lamp, prepare a platter of spiced chicken and pulses, pour copious glasses of mead, pull up a throne to a blazing fire and listen".
