Anyway, this is my favorite of her later albums (although I don't think she likes it much). It has variety- the songs are of similar genre, but it's not one of these albums where they all sound the same. It has some new wave effects and other musical interludes which are colorful. To me it's kind of classy and just a fun album for if a person isn't in a "I need an intense ultimate prog listening experience" kind of mood. My favorite songs would be "Moonlight Shadow", "Celestine", "Wishing On A Star" and "One More Arrow."
Actually, this album helped me to discover Renaissance. When I was a kid my parents played it. I loved "One More Arrow" and was like "hey it's that lady my parents always listen to". At a young age I liked this the best, but I ended up listening to my mom's Renaissance records because of it and have been a fan for a long time. Annie is the greatest.
I was apprehensive to buy this album, since Annie Haslam was "the voice of Renaissance" in my book. What convinced me was Larry Fast, who is, in my opinion, one of the best creators of electronic music ever (Just buy "Games" by Synergy, and you'll know what I mean). So I bought the CD and braced myself...
This album is incredible! So upbeat, so melodic, so well recorded. Annie's voice is celestial, and the arrangements catch you and don't let you go. I find myself whistling "Moonlight Shadow" all day at work. There is not a bad song in all the CD: "The Angels Cry" is beautiful, "Furthest From Fantasy" is so catchy is almost annoying (just kidding), "Wildest Dreams" is beautiful and moving. Don't hesitate to buy it, it is truly amazing.
If you liked the era of Moogs, sequencers, Mellotrons, Roland keyboards, and such, you will enjoy this album. Probably it sounds a little dated for younger people, but trust me: It is a very good album.

I recommend this CD and any others by Annie Haslam. She is my favorite soloist. I never tire of listening to her music.Published on September 7, 2013 by PM
I do happen to be a big Renaissance and Annie Haslam fan, but I'm not one of the Haslam sycophants who believe she can sing the phone book and still make interesting music. Read morePublished on June 22, 2013 by Tempus Fugit
