I was quite surprised when I read (after I had listened to the CD) that One Trail To Heaven by In the Labyrinth was a compilation album, because it flows so well from piece to piece.

In my book, the music on One Trail To Heaven fits perfectly into what we know as World Music, at least my definition of World Music, that is, a fusion of many musics inspired by a variety of different cultures. While listening to One Trail To Heaven I am transported to the Orient, Turky, Ireland, Spain... a many more destinations I cannot identify, all this while keeping a British/Scandinavian Prog flavour to the music.

One Trail To Heaven by In the Labyrinth is an excellent album indeed. If I play the reference game, I would compare the music on One Trail To Heaven to Steve Hackett's recent works, but also his collaborations with East European band Djabe. The music on One Trail To Heaven is mostly instrumental, but some tracks feature some nice lead vocals by Peter Lindahl. His voice is pretty close to Anthony Phillips', and there are some similarities between this album and some of the music produced by Mr. Phillips. At times I also feel that One Trail To Heaven would be a good soundtrack for a production by Le Cirque du Soleil.

One Trail To Heaven is an excellent album and it will often find it's way toi my CD player. I will also check out In the Labyrinth previous CDs, hoping that they are of the same level of quality as this one. Great stuff indeed!!
