What a class. So beautiful. Sometimes jazzy, so could be as the other sub-forum as well.

Yes, it's a good one, nice contributions from Patrick O'Hearn. The same year Isham contributed to O'Hearn's Rivers Gonna Rise album by the way.

The Grand Parade is the most "commercial" track, but the ambient ones are good too.

I have "Castalia" and I like it but I didn't enjoy it half as much as "Vapor Drawings" which is a wonderful mix of mid 80s keyboards and trumpet. "Castalia" just doesn't have that same magic.

Castalia may not be the best he ever did (since there is no account for taste, it can't be), but there are some superb tracks on it. My personal favourite is "Meeting With The Parabolist".

Some of the tracks on this album are a bit too "romantic" for me. Too much violins going on, and too much Hollywood-soundtrack-break-out-the-tissue's-because-this-is-gonna-be-a-boohoo-scene pathetics

A big bonus is that this album was recorded very well (like most of his albums)

I don't think there is a single violin on that album...

I hear strings on the track "My Wife's Champagne Shoulders".

that's what I mean...synth strings. I'm one of those old-fashioned guys that still calls them "violins".
