If Klaatu and Genesis had come together to write Trespass part 2, that would be exactly what this album sounds like. Anthony Phillips (ex-Genesis) has written another fantastic record, The Geese & The Ghost was a wonderful prog-folk release, but I feel the description at the beginning of this review is pretty accurate. Another thing I'm going to point out is that Anthony Phillips really does sound like a singer from Klaatu, I really do enjoy his voice and it does fit the albums mood (not to mention the album cover is gorgeous). The harmonies on this album are very well produced, well performed, and well mixed. Songs like 'Birdsong and Reprise', 'Moonshooter', 'Wise After The Event', and 'Greenhouse' are the standout tracks, all very well written tracks that all sound like they could fit on Trespass and/or a Klaatu record. 'Pulling Faces', 'Paperchase', and 'Now What' are also fantastic tracks, they fit on the album, and I just wish that this album just more material to praise.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable listen from ex-Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips, most of his albums are very underrated and I find that he deserves a bunch more credit than he is getting.
