4 stars My fond addiction to this band's music started with their 1995 release on The Laser's Edge. With their patented strong Scandanavian influences, WHITE WILLOW also interestingly for me build in that certain magical progressive mannerism which caught my attention. With a fine array of instrumentation including a fine use of vintage analog keyboards this band have my ears. "Ignis Fatuus" is their most relaxed album to date but still contains all their mystical moods and creative Folk Prog elements. The musicians on this album are also quite talented and offer some great flute, keyboard, acoustic guitar bass and vocalizations. The music of WHITE WILLOW is always teetering on the edge of darkness, but never gets ugly or eerie... always creative. Sara Trondeal's vocals are fantastic and definitely add to the Scandanavian mystical vibe I get when I hear this album. Sara is supported by the talents of Jan Tariq Rahman (keyboards, recorders, crumhorn, kantele, sitar, bass pedals, bass, vocals, devices), Tirill Mohn (violins, classical guitar), Audun Kjus (flutes, whistles, pipes, bodhran, vocals), Eldrid Johansen (vocals), Alexander Engebretsen (bass) and the band leader Jacob C. Holm-Lupo (guitars). Overall a gentle yet very moving album full of superb workmanship and song writing.
