Prog Reviewer
4 stars The most proggy album from the band in my opinion, containing two epics, one being about 25 minutes long.

Trip to the Fair is the strongest song on the album. It begins heavily dominated by piano that gives imagery of traveling (with a horse). After that section, the rest of the music is very melodic and beautiful with a few solos and instrumental sections put in. After a short pop song, Ocean Gypsy comes in and gives pleasure and plenty of beauty to the listener. The epic of the album "Song Of Scheherazade" is like Supper's Ready ... a huge song that summarizes the band with a collection of short tracks connected flawlessly.

Highlights : Trip of the Fair

Let Downs : None

My Grade : B

Zitro | 4/5 |
