Between Heaven and Earth
Well, what's not to say about this album? It is somewhere between heaven and earth, between Enigma and Mythos, and yet neither. Era quite comfortably creates its own unique niche with this album. It has a European-Medieval flair while dancing on the fringes of New Age. At the same time, there is some excellent guitar riffs, much like the great rock ballads of the past. Tony MacAlpine immediately comes to mind. The synthesizers mixed with the Latin Choir is strongly reminiscient of Enigma, sounding parallel and yet diagonal.
If you enjoy losing yourself in the rhythm and the emotional feel of music, then you will definitely enjoy this album. Just sit back, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and drift into the choirs that will lift you to heaven and then dive into the oceanic lull of the rhythm that will swiftly return you to earth.
This music will definitely whisper to the ear of your heart. Where it will take you depends on the openness of your soul.
