Prog Reviewer
2 stars This is indeed a very folkish album. To find any prog relation here would result in a miracle!

It is just a bunch of simple and short acoustic songs with nice arrangements and decent vocals. That's the bill! Some unusual instruments are used here and there, but they are mixed with such a burden of lousy stuff ("St. Crispin's Day") that they aren't really put on the forefront.

This album has little to share with prog IMHHO. But, we'll see the band's evolution throughout their next works. This one doesn't contain any song which can move me. Not a lot of interesting tunes in here. If this band is on PA, I guess that Simon & Garfunkel can also claim their entry?Just listen to "Spring Season" to prove me right.

Their medieval sound might be of appeal at times, but I can hardly digest a song as "Willowood". Actually, the music played on this album is not very much of my liking: a combination of no prog with a lot of folk. Be it "Old Moot Hall" or the weak "Lady Marion's Galliard".

The positive point is the vocal harmonies which are well crafted, but this is not enough to make this album a good one in my prog view. Two stars for these (un) Evensongs.
