Not only am I a hardcore fan of progmusic, I also have a big heart for folk (especially that of the English/UK origin) and here comes along an absolutely briliant Dutch folk/prog band with the wonderful moniker SCARLET STORIES, these guys and gals are simply fantastic I loved every minute of their deliverence, so heartfelt, so pure and clean, so very into your heart music and vocals, it has been a long time since I have heard such beautilful music delivered with such finesse, every tone every string every perfect delivery..goes right into my musical heart and caresses my soul!
WOW what a band..I havent heard anything this great and wonderful since the days of Fairport Convention/ Trees, Fotheringay & Trader Horne.
I have always thought that if a band can deliver their tunes/songs acoustic, they were great artists and true musicicans!
Scarlet Stories are a true example of that notion! I love this album and band!! The acoustic deliverence, the amazing vocals of Lisette Van Den Berg...that sends shivers down my back! One moment she´s a woman, the next she´s a girl/child..vocal wise!
Let me also praise the other members of this unique band, everything here is perfectly delivered as in very heartfelt and very true to the compostions at hand!
I absolutely love this band and album!!
Everything is perfect here, this album goes straight to my personal collection!!
The drama, the real feel, the sincerity, the beauty of these 7 songs, leaves me breathless and happy!
True and honest music is still here for you to enjoy, you MUST get this outing from this absolutely excellent band!!
Cant wait to hear the next album from SCARLET STORIES!!
A must have...just dont expect heavy chords and flying guitar soli!!
