I must comment first on the CD packaging; in place of the usual jewel case we have a beautifully designed heavy-duty paper-board (with a velum quality) container that opens up to reveal two inner pockets. One pocket contains the CD in a bespoke inner sleeve on which is printed the track listing and artwork; the other contains ten cards with stunning images taken from The Bible Of Borso DâEste which come with musician and instrumentation information on the reverse for each individual track. I can’t say I go overboard usually as regards to CD packaging, but it would be worth framing these ten mini gems for display rather than keeping them in their rightful place. A lot of thought has gone into this. And a lot of thought has gone into the music too! The first track is an amalgam of delicately plucked acoustic guitar, haunting flute and violin and unobtrusive base in the style of Anthony Phillips The Geese And The Ghost which develops into a fuller sound when it merges into the second track incorporating organ, Mellotron, electric guitar, low and tin whistles. I’m actually listening to the album again as I type and, to be honest, I have an almost uncontrollable urge to close my eyes and drift with the music. The third track, which is almost Celtic in feel and slightly jazzy. Track four is piano and violin in the style of a classical lament. Fifth track starts off in a avante garde jazz style which reminds me of the band Gong and their album Shamal, but then Mellotron is introduced and Enid sounding lead guitar. Delicate percussion draws us into track six with violin, guitars, piano and low whistle adding to the hypnotic effect. The recorder on track seven reminds me of Gryphon but that soon leads onto an early Genesis sound and faster yet delicate pace. Woodwind, strings, Mellotron and organ sheer bliss. Track eight is a pacey, jazzy number with a Moroccan feel, again not unlike the sort of thing Moving Hearts used to be famous for. The final track, the longest at over 13 minutes, is again an eclectic mix of styles and instruments, combining the modern with the traditional, closing with a distinctively Celtic theme. This album is entirely instrumental, full of melodies, full of changes, demands to be listened to and yet allows the listener to lose themselves, in nature I suppose, which is the overall theme. Styles incorporating classical, jazz, prog, Celtic and even world. The entire package is indeed a work of art.
