4 stars 3.8 3.8 The cover of this posthumous album is a lonely scene of legendary Quijote and Sancho riding tired and with their heads down in the horizonless La Mancha, maybe reflecting the mood that band members had when they were left without the opportunity to release these themes when they were composed, back in early 70's. It seems they were fired and their career ended prematurely. The three former releases had each a different style and music scavengers must have got tired of waiting for the guys to bring money home. What a shame, what an error. The third release was amazing symphonic prog, and the themes contained in this album rescued for the human kind in 97 show they had finally found their site. There are superb tracks like Sleighride that has no envy to the greatest. The quality of the sound is below standards, I imagine this is what engineers could get out of the tapes, but still you may feel the taste of great original symphonic Prog. A smooth singing resembling early Caravan, great bass, and inspired organ characterize this hidden jewel that should have been the album for recognition of this wandering band that took too long to find its site. This one should be in anyone's Prog collection.
