Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
What a wonderful album from this French five-piece band! The melodic and harmonic songs alternates from romantic and swinging tot up-tempo and bombastic featuring powerful female vocals, lush keyboards (beautiful Mellotron waves) and strong electric guitar (JP Alarcen would later produce some strong solo work).
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
A slightly misleading title for this album, as it was actually the third release under the Renaissance name. In fairness though, the line up completely changed prior to the release of this album, which saw Annie Haslam take on vocal duties for the first time.
