      Not the best

      This Danish folk/metal band are approachable for most listeners, the guitar solos should content most metal fans and equalise the fact that it tends to be quite poppy vocally. I'm not a big fan of the vocals, they seem to go out of tune on certain songs and are a bit sharp on the ears, however due to the length of certain songs they do change considerably throughout the song - an example of this can be found on "The Road Goes Ever On" where the vocalist finishes with an almost Dio like voice. The album's musical side can also be described as eclectic, for the most part there is a power edge worthy of Blind Guardian, however folk elements and progressive sneak in, there's an intriguing acoustic turn blast of metal track "The Tapdancer Gather Ye Wild Reprise" which has a hint of medievalness to it and impresses acoustically before turning into an out of tune mess. This isn't an album I rate that highly but a favourite track would probably be the relatively straight-forward guitar solo heavy "Bad Hobbits Die Hard" which has none of Johansson's dubious vocals despite its curious name! The music seems neither innovative or at the top of it's games, there are odd tempo changes which make it sound disjointed, Johansson's vocals range from below-par Dio to downright awful. Lyrically it doesn't really float my boat either. I'd give it a miss. 1 Gather Ye Wild [Instrumental] 2 Road Goes Ever On 3 Tree 4 Longing for the Woods, Pt. 1: The Wild Children 5 Highland Winds 6 Longing for the Woods, Pt. 2: The Ring of Fire 7 Bollard 8 Bad Hobbits Die Hard 9 Longing for the Woods, Pt. 3: Herne's Prophecy 10 Land of Olden Glory 11 Lament for Lorien 12 Tapdancer: Gather Ye Wild (Reprise)
