This album is an album that might make some of you starting to feel a bit nostalgic about decennia that have long since passed. With this I mean that this album seems to have its roots back in the eighties. Just listen to the fourth song ‘Batllegrounds’, and I guess that anyone who was musically aware in the eighties, will immediately say that this song was inspired by ‘Over The Hills And Far Away’ by the late Gary Moore.
I own the first two albums of Cloudscape, ‘Cloudscape’ and ‘Crimson Skies’, but seem to have missed their third release ‘Global Drama’. Now I’m picking the trail back up with their fourth release ‘New Era’.
