This is another great album by the Legendary Ten Seconds with exciting and superbly written music. Love the diversity of the album with fast and slower songs, from beautiful instrumentals like “Sunnes And Roses” to folk song like “Autumn Rain” to truly lovely “Middleham Castle On Christmas Eve” with its excellent sound-effects.
Wonderful music yet again by the Ian Churchward & The Legendary Ten Seconds!
