2 stars This is a band that just hasn't clicked with me. I like the male and female vocals but when it comes to listening to one of their albums I get bored really fast.

The first disc of "The Inconsolable Secret" is a good example of this. I start out really enjoying the piano and vocals, and the guitar is great but then I lose interest. It may be that the telling of the story takes precedence over the instrumental passages, I don't know. I think it's just me.

Disc 2 has more songs and more variety. I like the first song "Long And Long Ago" the best on the whole record. Some good guitar work and violin. There is a choir that sings on "The High Place" and some orchestral movements on the "The Lady Waits" and "The Mirror Cracks". Did I mention that i'm not a big fan of choirs and orchestral type music.

Anyway this is clearly a talented band who know what they are doing when it comes to Symphonic prog, i'm just not a fan.
