4 stars You know how fantasy band sounds like ? Well, it's exactly how Barrock sounds. It' hard to describe, I spend many hours (when I was growing up) by playing games and this music (Overture is beginning, then more prominently in Re Artu and further in next songs) simply reminds me game music.

Instruments doesn't seem strong at all, I dare to say that they sounds little bit like MIDI music. Maybe it's because of continuing curse of unfortunate decade 80's. Strange choice of synthesizers with weak drums (I had to equalize a lot to even hear them). There's also strong medieval feeling.

4(-), I wanted to give worse, but except bad feelings that I had first minutes, there's nothing so bad. It's quite a lot electronized album, but RPI influence is strong here.
