Prog Reviewer
3 stars A mashup of a folky acoustic guitar-focused singer-songwriter aesthetic and a compositional style and progressive touches reminiscent - as I believe Colin himself says - of Camel or Pendragon, Girl On the Castle Steps is a pleasant album with a wistful atmosphere. Balancing folky songs with more electric efforts - View From the Mountain arguably being the proggiest and rockingest song on the album - it's a release which I suspect will get a passing mark from many prog fans but will struggle to get much in the way of sustained repeated playback. It's a good album and if you put it on the stereo whilst we're driving I'd happily listen to it to the end, but I can't find myself wanting to revisit it very much.
