4 stars Well do you remember such a renewal of one piece of art concerning 20th century's classic music, performed by Fireballet?!I'm referring to "Night on a Bold Mountain" by Mussorgsky: if the answer is "yes", try to check it out and listen to this kind of classic music stuff from Sweden as well,which is the most important reference for Par Lindh (here the title is "Night on a Bare Mountain"). In fact this first project by Lindh seems similar to Fireballet's "Night on a Bold Mountain", but in comparison to the old jewel from USA, is less referred to bands like Yes or Genesis, rather trying to emulate the same spirit of Anglagard (his former great band!!),inside an apparatus of classic music!! That is certainly you won't be disappointed or upset from this "Gothic" apparatus, built on the keyboards (above all the Hammond organs and the Cathedral organ too, played by this interesting composer),nor you will find any Romantic stuff in the vein of 70's classic prog music (unlike Fireballet), because is an instrumental album entirely composed by Lindh according to the classic model of a Music Academy...nevertheless it lacks of something, but it is not important in the whole contest!! This issue stands alone as his best effort: afterwards He was not able to repeat his performance at this level,especially with the same creativity, and cause of this "defect", the following albums were a bit disappointing and too much repetitive!! Of course a "3 stars and an half" rating is righter, but it never minds, as you could also buy it without thinking of its quality too much!!
