4 stars Well, apart from that typical dark sound of the early nineties in Scandinavia, which is not so much original and making it deserve an inferior score (perhaps "three stars and an half"), the construction of the songs is convincing us more and more- anyway after a careful listening. Their album reminds me of the atmosphere within "Hybris" - by Anglagaard- an important reference; but this time -in comparison to their remarkable debut "Ignis Fatuus"- this new release by W.W. is less symphonic, but always ethereal , despite of being enriched also by means of heavy guitars...well that's not the stunning folk prog sound of their debut, but rather a strange contamination between the "harsh" Flower Kings in the period of "Rain Maker" and something of "Porcupine Tree" as well.Ok I don't like always this kind of progressive music too much, but their research for some personal orchestrations at the Mellotrion and their use of charming voices too, are worth checking out at least!!

Very interesting music...from Europe, and that's enough to me!!
