4 stars Whenever I put this CD on, I can't help but to think of Wishbone Ash. Or more like what that band would have sounded like still at the development stage prior to their first album. Unassuming and at the sane time very ambitious seemingly amateurs having a go.

Largely instrumental work and even the charmingly shy-ish vocals remind of WA. The mix suffers a bit from the excessively busy bass dominating throughout the whole work. Excessive in the sense of leaving the others behind, who seem to struggle to match his enthusiasm. The twin guitars that don't really sound like twins at all are lacking the skills, or perhaps just the experience to sound convincing enough. Desperately stretching out in a commendable effort, but not quite there yet in the skills department.

It's a pity that the friendship didn't last long enough to reach more maturity as this band held much promise. Altogether, it's still pretty good work, offering a pleasant listening experience. 3.5
