A Real Hidden Gem,
This review is from: The Fading Ghosts of Twilight (Audio CD)
I had to put something down to represent this superb album to lovers of brilliant progressive music. The only reason I feel people wouldn't be reaching for the stars (all 5 of them!) for this cd is because they haven't heard it!
Agents of mercy are one of the "vehicles" of Roine Stolt (the Flower Kings and Transatlantic) and he is the principle song writer. This is their debut recording and a real gem- being an album I would frequently reach for from my extensive and heaving collection of music.
Within the track listing there is a variety of different moods, styles and brilliant melodies- though like any album some for me are stronger than others- 3 of the tracks on here I would say are really outstanding and amongst my all time favourites ; "The Fading Ghosts of Twilight" (the title track), "Heroes and Beacons" and "Mercy and Mercury".
In conclusion it is truly a crime that no one has yet reviewed the superb contents of this recording, as it contains some really memorable music. When this is combined with excellent recording quality and beautiful, evocative artwork I would recommend this purchase to anyone.
