Posted Monday, December 22, 2014 Review 1327381 Germany's Prog Folk masters' second major release and quite a step forward from Zaubersprüche in that the band loosens up a bit and diverges and varies its path from straightforward Renaissance Faire music.

Every song is engaging and so well balanced between gorgeous melodies, amazingly coordinated and complementary instruments and voices interwoven in magical balance, plus there is a great warmth and to the recording and fullness of the sound.

Von Den Elben 4:08 04. The album has a sound throughout--especially the first three songs--that makes it sound as if it were harnessed straight from the stages of Renaissance Fairs. Thereby they set historical tunes from various periods and regions to music and on the other hand create a lot of their own compositions as well.
Tilo Weber Quartet - Hollis' Heaven. A nice high note to end the album. What an end to an incredible album! Lisa takes up a simple melody alone for the first verse and then is joined by another female voice and some other instrumentation violin, flutes, hand drums, electronic drums, harp.
