3 stars Oh, the folk songs, old ones, drawing inspiration from history, medieval, or simply old- sounding instruments (even simply acoustic guitar is enough to basically every mood). But the songs are, well, it sounds like bunch of not related sounds. Judith, it is country song ? Not that I don't like this style, I like, I even like it a lot (guitar always makes me smile and dream), but for prog rock, it's strange. Good thing that this is prog folk, but later on, even more country appears. It's not bad one, just over-influenced by this genre. And also, it's first and it probably means they were still finding themselves.

OK, edited rating. They persuaded me (these songs) to give them one half better rating (these songs) 4(+), not bad album, but not prog so much. Very good folk album, different from all these endless British folklore inspired folks. But it's melodic, various instruments are used here (I was pleased how good it sounds) and if sheer admiration of this folk pearl is not enough for masterpiece, I'll give at least "almost masterpiece rating", 4 stars better.
