3 stars This fair record has 2 very long songs. The movement is very slow and you have to listen entirely the album to make a review. Despite there are very good bits at many places, there are many bits that I consider too lengthy. The change of patterns could have been made more frequently. It gives a quite linear album. The songs are rather loaded of many different instruments, but it is played quite in the background, so that it seems not being well recorded. If you like Tubular bells, then you should like this one.
