4 stars The third installment from Canada's Monarch Trail marks perhaps their strongest album todate. With music as majestic as the cover art , this band really pull out a beauty here on Wither Down! Ken Baird (vocals and keyboards) has always had the symphonic tendencies in his music and you can hear his touch throughout this album....piano..synths and even recorder. Dino and Chris lay down some solid prog chops along the journey and adding in a few guest guitarists too (Steve Cochrane and Kelly Kereliuk). Musically this album has some of Monarch Trails strongest songs with MEGALOPOLITANA landing as my favourite song ! If you are a fan of IQ, Marillion. Mike Oldfield and in general symphonic rock, then Wither Down may just be your next album to purchase !.
