4 stars Star keyboard whiz Par Lindh and assorted string guru Bjorn Johansson combine their numerous talents to produce this musical adaptation of Tolkien's Hobbitt way before tje epic movie Lord of The Rings was even in planning stages! A definite mystical symphonic folk adventure, this surprising recording of delicate medieval-tinged tunes will please some but not all fans, since its quite a departure from PLP's more bombastic style. This CD would fall in just nicely between Ant Phillips' " The Geese & the Ghost" and Gian Castello's splendid "Taliesyn" , with pastoral themes bathing in an almost "children bedtime story" veneer and sweet flowing themes that cast a magical inspiration. Ideal Sunday morning music with mandolins caressing your stessed soul and inconspicuously returning you to the wonderful simplicity of chilhood. 4 tolkiens
