After the fantastic Secrets Of Astrology came the notably lesser album Project Shargri-La. While there is absolutely no sense in talking about a disappointment here, as this is indeed another good Lana Lane album in its own right, Project Shargi-La simply isn't nearly as spectacular as the two albums that surround it, the masterpieces Secrets Of Astrology and Lady MacBeth. Indeed, following after such an impressive series of albums from Love Is An Illusion to Secrets Of Astrology, Project Shargi-La, good though it is, is in my opinion one of the band's least good albums. However, with the sole exception of the rather awful Italian-language, Opera-style, Time To say Goodbye, all of the songs here are indeed good ones, but not one of them stand out as truly excellent the way the Astrology Suite did on the previous album. Also, as the album follows a similar formula as the previous five albums, there are few surprises here. It is certainly enjoyable, but it doesn't offer much new.

Project Shargri-La is indeed a recommended addition to any comprehensive Lana Lane collection, but it isn't one of the better places to start.
