Willowglass - The Dream Harbour

Here is another excellent self financed recording. The third release by Willowglass (which in essence is multi-instrumentalist Andrew Marshall). This is his third album under the Willowglass banner and it certainly is his best. The music is definitely of the symphonic, Genesis kind of thing, but Andrew is such a wonderful musician and composer that he takes his influences to different levels. Although his previous albums are very good, I did find that sometimes the compositions seemed to lack some cohesion. No problem with this new album. All tracks are very well structured and have a clear sense of development. He is ably assisted on this by Hans Jorg Schmitz on drums and the very talented Steve Unruh (The Samurai of Prog) on violin and flute. Excellent instrumental album this is indeed.
