First of all, let me mention the rather breathtaking cover art by Ed Unitsky!! This solo album by Dave Bainbridge of IONA fame, has an overall feeling of beauty, perfect musical delivery and great compositions. Multi instrumentalist (guitars, keyboards, compositions) Bainbridge
have invited friends and guest musicians by the load. let me just mention a few of these fine musicians: Randy George: Bass/Taurus bass pedals * Damian Wilson : Vocals de luxe * Collin Leijenar: Drums * Yvonne Lyon, Joanne Hogg & Sally Minnear: Vocals (angel voices) and that is just a few ot the participants here!!

Have you ever longed for an album with high powered prog instrumentals blended with folk rock like tunes, sometimes with wonderful Celtic themes and angelic voices/vocals?!!

Well, I am here to tell you, that the wait is over!!! Celestial Fire is just that ..and then some!!

From the brief opener "Heavenfield" with Uillieann pipes, keys & voices, to the second entry here namely title (and epic) tune "Celestial Fire" which is some 15:24 minutes of bliss!

You all know what it feels like, when an album grabs you by the throat (read: touches your feelings, ears, heart) and then pursuit to impress you in a certain way!! Well my friends this is one such album!

I am not gonna run through the songs on this fine release, I think you deserve to have that pleasure yourself!!

I will say this though: I promise you will enjoy every jaw dropping minute of it!!

Bainbridges musical skills, really shines through, the excellent guitar playing, the compositions, the arrangements, the wonderfully talented musicians involved!!

As a whole this is a near perfect album release!! I rate it high, still leaving half a star for his next venture!!

Celestial Fire indeed!!
