This album features 14 instrumental compositions performed on acoustic guitar, with only some sparse orchestration in the background and occasional flutes. Also some lovely bagpipes in Dublin Day. And as if this was not minimalistic enough, there is also a bonus disc with "acoustic versions" (sic!) featuring the very same acoustic recordings but without the orchestration.

The tempo is often slow and the mood is generally soothing, but it is not a relaxation CD as such. It obviously has nothing whatever to do with progressive Rock, or with Rock of any kind. As such, it is probably of minimal interest for most visitors of this website. Still, it is actually a very pleasant listen with a nice "dreamy" atmosphere. It works well as background music when, for example, reading. I also like the romantic feel of the sleeve painting.
