4 stars All-instrumental album recorded by the bass player from the modern Itailian band Finisterre with other musicians. The album starts out very sublime, flutes, violins and Camel-like guitar dominate the album. When the sax is used, it has a smooth jazz sound not unlike what you would hear on the Weather Channel (here in the states) in the background during the local weather report. Some keyboards (melotron/synth) show up towards the end, but its mainly piano throughout. Since the theme is spring, one would think that the sound would be boring, but thats not the case. What I like very much is the theme in the beginning of the album shows up at the end to tie things up nicely. There are some driving songs here, but not aggressive. Overall band comparisons would be a mixture of Camel with a laid back Happy The Man. Music to soothe the soul. Special mention must be made about the packaging: it's in a white textured cardboard digi-pak with sleeves for the CD on one side and in the other, cardboard cards, one for each song with a beautiful painting on one sideof the card and the musicians named with their instruments on the other. I wish all bands went as far with the presentation. Gorgeous! A solid 4-star affair.
