Summary of history
The astute reader will have noticed that this album has been released by Edith Music and it is not surprising to hear that this album is in fact a solo album by one of Ediths members. Although the music on this disc is not progressive, I've reviewed exactly because of this relation with Edith.
Like I've said, this is not a neo-progressive album, but the musical style is more relaxing, a bit in the direction of Kenny G maybe, but vocal and another reference that came into my mind was Fireships by Peter Hammill, because that album breaths about the same atmosphere as this one.
Another reference is the softer side of Steve Hackett, because of the fairly prominent acoustic guitar. With respect to the project itself and also its relation to progressive rock, it falls into the category of Petere Gee's solo album, although this album is not about religion. The tone of the album as the reader might have understood by now is subdued with a fairly large role for the sax, but the songs also contain a keyboard solo of the sort as well.
The songs are more to be listened to as singer/songwriter material IMO then as progressive epics and this is how I've judged them. Because the atmosphere within the songs and between the songs does not change a lot there is not a song that stands out. I can't say that I'm very impressed by this effort, but it's not a real disappointment either. The album is kind of flat, sometimes even beautiful but it doesn't really strike
a chord in me. IMO the best song on the album is After the Storm, because it's not so subdued as the rest.
