4 stars Trails of Ambergris is their forth album issued at same Mellow records in 2008 is another worthy album from their catalogue, and is their final one 'till today. As I said on previous reviw from Opus , that I have a soft spot for this band, thie album to me is their best so far and one of the most pleasent and enjoyble neo prog album I've heared in last years. Quite underrated in my opinion, Trails of Ambergris has all the high point of the previous album and even more excellent ideas added. Perfect musicianship, instrumental passages are very well performed, with rich arrangements, again long pieces with very good guitar parts. Complex neo prog, with some symphonic touches and aswell some celtic folk, some '70's prog influences on this release like PFM, Steve Hackett, Genesis, some Marillion, but in the end the album turn to be a very enjoyble one. Wind-tanned Horses, is a perfect example of how great this band is, the instrumental Arcontes Merees Karaleos and the best pieces to me The slower, long pieces, varied compostions, complex arrangenets, like a progressive rock album must be, I like alot this kind of neo prog, with guitar shining on every piece, fascinating keybords melting with the rest of the instruments, no weak moments , only great and inventive part s from Yleclipse. Again 4 stars for this unnoticed band with moderate succes to prog listners, for sure Yleclipse needs a far more wider exposure to public because they are a fantastic band from this genre, far better then most of so called important bands from neo zone, I was very pleasent surprised. Excellent cover art, that mediaval like drawing is very catchy and goes hand in hand with the album music melodic and in same time quite complex. This album like previous one goes recommened from me, I don't really know why are so low rated, these two releases are a great example of how must sound and be played neo prog these days.
