Once Upon a Time in the North - Glorious Records 2003
Some numbers may seem a little fresh and in some cases slightly unfinished. On the other hand, you also sense a group with both talent and musical ambition. Not least the fairly extensive use of guest musicians on various violins and other classical instruments indicate big visons.
Many of the tracks are somewhat subdued, not least if you have selected the fourteen tracks version with four bonus tracks. Strongest, however, is the group on the more upbeat and rocking numbers, which are also when they sound most like on the following very fine albums that came soon after.
The single "Artboy Meets Artgirl" stand out by being by far the most catchy song - almost the perfect pop single. Otherwise, you’ll note "The Sun and the Silence" and the waltzy "Summerfool" as highlights on the album.
