Prog Reviewer
3 stars Another concept album. This one has vocals in it.

Unfortunately, this album is not as strong as Nude and Snow Goose. The songs are fine, but they can get tedious if you are not in the mood.

The type of music here is symphonic soft rock with an orchestra. The orchestra works really well and amplifies the sound of the record. The problem I have with this album (besides the 15 minutes of nothing) is that most of the songs lack energy and hooks.

My favourite songs from this record are the energetic Running from Paradise, the pink Floyd-esque Watching the Bobbins, the opening irish melodies, and the brilliant instrumental section of "End of the Day".

My Grade : C-

Zitro | 3/5 |
