4 stars This is good stuff!

I only bought this after having read the positive reviews and I am not disappointed!

In fact, Part I is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. Especiall the guitar break starting around minute 10 and the whole final with the slight african feeling to it.

Love it !

Part II is nice, but much less dramatic, not up to the standards of part I in my view.

Then we have that little extra song, "on horseback".

yes, it's naive, a bit cheesy, kind of a childs song, and you know what, I Love it!!

The Refrain is one of the most beautiful tune ever in my ears :-) It often comes to my mind and my mood goes up instantly !

alltogether 4 Stars (4,3 maybe)
