4 stars This first blackmores night album is a good album,yes it is different from what blackmore done before like but dont let that put you of shadow of the moon,yes when i first heard this it took me a few listens to enjoy it[the reason why was because i liked blackmores deep purple and rainbow stuff and this is like diofferent],anyway this has some good songs on this,shadow of the moon is a great track i love everything about this song candices voice is really nice and she sounds really attractive to and blackmores guitar sounds nice to,the other songs i love on this are,ocean gypsy,writing on the wall,no second chance,spirit of the sea,wish you were here,all these songs are all worth having in the blackmore collection,the other songs are good but the ones i mention are the best i think,also renaissance faire is one i like to,this album as ive said is like different from blackmore and ive heard that he was fed up of playing the same music for like 30 years and i think hes done well here as if you get bord of something you,ll get to hate it,and blackmore ive heard has said that when he was in hotel rooms in the 70s hed play renaissance music on his guitar in the room,so at least hes playing the music now what he truely likes and loves,and i take my hat of to him for doing this style of music although he has has had mixed reviews,but if you really listen to this hard you,ll really understand that this is a great album as candice can sing really nice and i think her voice really goes really nice towards blackmores acoustic guitar,i give this 4 stars,if any of you havent heard blackmores night give this a chance it is folk renaissance style but dont let that put you of,as on a night in with the lights of or with a lamp on this really sounds and feels great to me,4 stars.
