The album with the very long title is made by a group of esoteric neo-hippies from Great Britain, who see their mission in making the world better with their music. The songs are performed in an idealistic way and remind one sometimes of the musical “Hair”, then of Blackmore´s Night or of the musicians from the pedestrian precinct. Their instrumental repertoire goes from medieval ones to modern drums. There are pure instrumental titles like “Orpheus” next to songs with singing, but this only improves the quality of the record conditionally. In “We are long lost” the listener gets the impression that every woman in the band wanted to whine into the microphone, and the sickly sweet lyrics strengthen the Flower Power impression too. Also “Candlelight” does not really please with the wrong notes or the irresolute guitar playing. In some title one cannot be sure, what can be the sense behind it. Is there a cat screaming or does someone tune an instrument? Best example for this is “The Aphid”.

Despite the here and there emotion about the fact, that there are still people who make music for fun and not because of their talent, the buying of this record can unfortunately not be recommended.
