4 stars This will not please everyone. Some are not attracted to the child side of themselves, making them less sensitive about fantasy or imagination tales. So be it, for others, this will please the hobbit seeking minestrel in you. Some parts are more rythmic such as The Shire, some are more atmospheric like The Dark Cave. I for once, could not remain mute about this fantastic record. This is not a letdown and far more true to the tradition of Tolkien. I'm not a Lord of the Rings maniac, but I definitely prefered Bilbo The Hobbit.

Pär Lindh's talent is once again indiscutable, switching from digital to analogic keyboards and he's fairly well supported by the talents of Johansson on the guitar. The songs are also easy to get into, they're progressive, but not as much as Lindh's solo albums. The fairy tale is well respected, and the people familiar with the book will also find the songs appropriate with the story. The people familiar with Gryphon will have no problem enjoying this.

Wake up the kid in you for an hour with this record.
