5 stars One of my favourite albums ever. It`s hard to believe why Mandalaband released only two albums. If this album contained only Om Mani Padme Hum, it still would be a masterpiece of progressive music deserving 5 stars, but there are other extraordinary songs which make this album essential. David Durant (lead vocal) has a wonderfoul voice. Even Luciano Pavarotti wouldn`t be shamed such a nice voice. David doesn`t sing alone, he is supported by The London Chorale. Not only singer is amazing but also othes musicians make a very good work. Tony Cresswell plays his drums perfect and Vic Emerson is like a whole orchiestra. Ashley Mulford`s guitar is very rocky, his solos are simply outstanding. In some moments (Om Mani Padme Hum part 2 and 3) makes me think of wedding party:-) Do you agree? I love it. This album is the best example of progressive symphonic rock. This one of the wonders of this World is of course highly recommended.
Mephew | 5/5 |
