3 stars Teamed with Harry Williamson, is a mixed bag of various instruments, mainly classical to provide a score to a film that is rich in the sound, peaceful in ambiance and prefers substance to the way music is played. Do not expect any complex progressive rock instrumentation, nor classical guitar being the centerfield of the concert. Every instrument has its place to take in the orchestra. Still, piano and guitar are easy to discern from other instruments and take lead in the melody.

Guitar playing is mastered to the full extent, as we are used at AP's albums. Second movement has even avantgarde elements with percussions and brass instruments.

The music is not chaotic; it is well structured and motives can be found upon deeper listening. "Movement III" provides the finale of the concert as the final piece.

"The anthem" is more a new-age relaxing composition with clear melody and a formidable goodbye to yet another new territory by AP.

A decent album!
