Their debut "To Be Continued..." The Windmill are now sensibly followed by "The Continuation". In fact, the Norwegians are starting their first work. However, both plates are not necessarily to be regarded as belonging together. The fact that an additional guitarist has joined the band is clearly noticeable. What distinguishes the band from others and at the same time puts them close to bands like Camel or Jethro Tull are the distinctive flute sounds. The saxophone is also heard and contributes to the exciting overall impression. Let's go with the instrumental title song very relaxed. It follows with "The Masque" the first of two longtracks, the luxurious ballad "Not Alone" lets you come down a bit before "Giant Prize" brings together marked guitar riffs and flute. The heart of the album, however, is the harmonious, three-part 24-minute album "The Gamer". It tells the story of a player who at first doesn't want to be distracted from his path, but then realizes that he was on the wrong track. Varied. Thumbs up!
