4 stars After hearing a few numbers from a tape I received (Thanks Richard!), I had to run out and buy the entire album. Based solely around Richie BLACKMORE's acoustic guitar and Candice NIGHT's beautiful voice, "Shadow Of The Moon" will take you deep into the dream-like RENAISSANCE age of castles and dragons. Most of the album moves very slowly and is a great album to just sit and relax to. Along the way we are treated to some real beautiful melodies carried with angelic harmonies of NIGHT's voice. BLACKMORE touches our soul with a classic ode to "Renaissance" with their classic tune "Ocean Gypsy" and a great number called "Play Minstrel Play" which features Ian ANDERSON (JETHRO TULLl) who plays his heart out on the flute. This is a great concept album really and offers some real nice touches which will appeal to those who want to explore some different worldly parts and musical horizons.
