This band and the growing releases of many other band like them, with female vocals and the blend of heavy sequences with beautiful vocals and a touch of folk (mostly inspired by the great UK folk rock tradition) really opens the question, how many more bands do we need going that down particular avenue of music genre?! I guess it is a question of : Let the best band win!! Now I am not dismissing this band, they are are great, but so are all the other (10-20) bands with that same ideology and musical preference! I am merely questioning the need of that many bands opting for that very same public! Well, that could be said for many other bands in the prog genre and its wide range of different approaches, couldn't it??! Now back to this release, these fine musicians delivers the goods and the beautiful voice of Moja brings nerve and feel to the many compositions here and it is a joy to hear her different approaches to the tunes involved! Also I must mention the brilliance of guitarist and vocalist Michael Stockschlager, his guitar escapades are here, there and everywhere and in a brilliant way! Michael also seconds on vocals (occasionally lead vocals) the rest of the band follow through and you cant put a critical finger on their delivery. So a fine album from these guys, nothing new, nothing groundbreaking, still a fine release, which could have a fan base out there! So quantity wise you get your money┬┤s worth (album clocking in at almost 80 min.) equally so in quality, question is: Do we need more bands in that particular genre?? Your choice!
