3 stars 3.5 stars really!!!

This is one album that made me have high expectations for upcoming releases but only to be deceived by them. On the strength of the early 90's Scandinavian melancholic prog boom like Anglagard, Anekdoten and Landberk, came a second wave including Catweazle, Galleon, Ageness, Twin Age, Simon Says and White Willow.

If most of these groups were developing an up-graded/up-dated neo-prog, White Willow was definitely looking a bit more towards the retro prog of the first wave groups mentioned above. But unlike those three, they music was not quite as dense (musically speaking, you twits!! ;-) and definitely more atmospheric. But can these guys ever get melancholic!!!
