5 stars This is THE Tempest album to try first. Tempest plays folk-rock alot like "Songs from the Wood" & "Heavy Horses" era Jethro Tull, Fairport Convention, Planxty, and Silly Wizard. Lief Sorbye's vocals are similar to Richard Thompson & Ian Anderson. The version of "The Barrow Man" is leagues ahead of the one found on Sunken Treasures. "The Midnight Sun" is one of the better songs in this genre. I'd also recommend Skyclad, Cruachan, Moonsorrow, and Finntroll. This type of music may not be very progressive, but it is certainly very eclectic.
