The Eden Prophecy is Paul Howarth and Damon Newman. This disc contains largely instrumental tracks originally featured on the discontinued albums 'Eulabes' and 'The Ascending Spirit' recorded between 2001- 2003 along with other tracks not previously released. The first three tracks are the previously unreleased ones, which stand out from the others simply as they sound like someone warming up and don't really go anywhere. "Eden" for example is very repetitive and becomes a little tedious. "Dark Planet" (from 'Eulabes') shows some experimentation but overall remains fairly simple in its delivery. However, the tracks from the 'Ascending Spirit' album offer the most in terms of variety, the best being "Arabian Journey" while "Seven Stars" provides some interesting playing. Overall, the CD has its moments, but guitar-driven instrumental albums have been done better elsewhere.
