4 stars Prologue for me was the best album by Renaissance in the seventies along with Ashes are Burning and Scheherazade. It has a perfect combination of piano and guitars, great vocal balancing between male and female and some good themes.' Sounds of the Sea' is so melancholic and Annie Haslam's vocals work a treat.' Spare some Love' really rocks. There is something about ' Bound for Infinity' which is quite intangible that makes it so perfect ( a bit like Dusk on Genesis , Trespass). The psychedlic ' Rajah Khan' makes for a climatic finish to the album with Haslam's chants giving the whole mood a supernatural feel. Excellent Prog rock with the undeniable classical influences.
