What a wonderful surprise to return to an old love from the 70s (Aerie Fairie Nonsense and the magnificent In The Region of the Summer Stars) to find that The Enid were able to turn out this absolute beauty as late as 1997. This one really grows on you. The stand out show-stoppers are Riguardon (a real livener), Chaconne (a satisfyingly insistent, irresistable echo of Eno's brilliant but disappointingly short title track to Another Green World) and the celtic-influenced Gigue. The rest of the 10 tracks are quieter, more reflective and provide just the right amount of balance, particularly the piano piece Ballade and the final track Nocturne that quietly recaps earlier themes. Based loosely on the spirit and feel of the Robert Graves book White Goddess, this is a positive, feelgood new age offering from the old master Robert John Godfrey. A must for all Enid fans.
