4 stars Once upon a time, i was in a music store, and the seller recommende this album to me, he said that it`s something like progressive folk, then i said, well, why not?, so after all i bought it and i dont regret of it.

And im sure it was a nice purchase, the album has some Irish - Flokish influenced sound, with a great organ on the most of the songs, and a very special use of the Oboe. In relation with other folkish albums, maybe this is not so good, i think it doesnt have a true creative sound, but im pretty sure that this album could be a great addition for prog lovers, specially prog -folk lovers,despite Frupp is a symphonic band, this album has a lot of folkish passages, like a short tale of a town in Ireland , the songs are soft in the most of the time, the voice maybe reminds you Andy Latimer`s voice, i think is quite similar.

All tracks are good, my favorite is Garden Lady , a 9 minute song which starts with a harder sound than the other ones, but suddenly a dramatic change (all of us already know that one of the beautys of prog rock is the dramatic change in the songs), here a couple of minutes of only keys and guitars in perfect time , then some good bass lines and a great drums rythm. If you`re looking something "new" in your tastes, i mean, something innovative and creative , this is the wrong album, because here we can immediately remind another albums, but maybe you only want to know another band or album, and for that reason i recommend this album to you, because i like it so much, every time i listen to i have a good time, and despite the other reviews i think this is a good album with a nice sound. This could be a good addition for you.
