Not a bad album, but it just doesn't "click" with me as the older albums did. Also I don't think that the music of Skyclad needs an orchestra as a support.

Not bad album but there are folk rock elements, bit softer, more rock as prev one, and funny lyrics, again this aspect how he writes, how all fits into music is an awesome comination, butthen you realize its not martin there anymore
