5 stars Aha, a concept album, about an Albino with a nick name of "Snow". Well there is a lot of religion in the lyrics also - so Snow is an albino Jesus or something like that...Anyway, the music is so good that it keeps your attention all the way through 2 hours of the life of Snow, very tight muscianship all the way through. Scintillating keys and interesting melodies make this possibly the best spocks beard CD I have heard up to now. Cd1 explores the major themes but it is CD2 that opens up with some wakemanesque arpegios and then my favourite bit - Ryo Okumoto doing his Keith Emerson (The Old Castle anybody) - If he had done the synth solo (and he should have) it would have been PERFECT...Anyway the CD is worth getting just for that bit of ELP bombast - I have to give it FIVE just because it's a good listen for TWO HOURS, buy it....
