5.0 out of 5 stars A new sound and a new beginning April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are many out there who have expected Ritchie Blackmore's material with Blackmore's Night to be something along the lines of Rainbow or Deep purple, and have been sort of turned off by the whole idea that he is now in a band so different from his past work. But, this is a new band for him. And with a new band comes experimenting with new material, and a whole new group of musicians. Its a new experience, and a chance to express so many other feelings through music. Personally I am a big fan of Blackmore's Night. I own all of their albums, "Under a violet moon" being my all-time favorite. Their music is mystical and capitvating, and it blends the perfect amount of rock with soul soothing melodies. I found their remake of "Self Portrait" to have an amazing touch, and gives a little something extra to the original version. Their live performances are great, they hold very true to what you hear on the albums. I highly recommend this album, and the others, to anyone who likes something just a little bit different. After all, the whole purpose of a new band is to try something new, isn't it? Definitely give it a chance.

2.0 out of 5 stars The incredible shrinking album May 11 2003
By Eric
Format:Audio CD
As my title says, this cd is a "shrinking" one, in contrast to a "grower", those cds that you absolutely hate at first but then love as time goes.
This, for me at least, worked in the exact opposite direction.
When I first bought this cd, I was aware of the music style--folk, Rennaissance era music ("Past Time with Good Company" was written by King Henry VIII and is also the best track) touched with a bit of a rock influence.
I loved it. Here it was! Medieval and Rennaissance music! Splendid! A beautiful female vocalist and great male ones too!
Then I started to really listen to it. At the time, my music interests grew outwardly as well. I started getting into different kinds of music, along the same theme only much, much darker. Bands like Emperor and Nokturnal Mortum, while certainly not acceptable to most of those who love trad metal like Deep Purple or Rainbow, do the kind of Ren-medieval era music *much, much* better.
Here it sounds like Blackmore and his fiancee are interested in the music enough to be familiar with it's style and be competent in how to play it. But overall the sound is just cheesy. The lyrics are for the most part uninspired and most of the songs are not memorable in the least. I've never described music as "naive" before, but that's the best word I can think of to describe some of the songs on this album, such as "Wind in the Willows".
"March the Heroes Home" is a kind of Tudor-era patriotic ditty. It has a nice feel, but it's still repetitive and boring.
There are good tracks on here, though: the title, "Under a Violet Moon" is one of my favorites, along with "Catherine Howard's End" and "Past Time with Good Company".

2.0 out of 5 stars Ritchie, THIS IS THE ULTIMATE SIN! March 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
P>I have always been a fairly large fan of most of the bands Ritchie Blackmore has played in, Deep Purple and Rainbow being the main ones. I heard that he was no longer a part of the current Deep Purple lineup, and after a little research, discovered he was playing in a new band called Blackmore's Night. Accordingly, I bought one of their albums, expecting something along the lines of Deep Purple and/or Rainbow.
It's called Blackmore's NIGHT for a reason.
This is the sun setting on Blackmore's once glorious musical career. This isn't even rock and roll! It's a horrific mixture of modern soft pop with what sounds a bit like Jethro Tull, but don't let that get your hopes up, the style fusion doesn't work. I saw the band had a woman singer, but paid this no attention, thinking Blackmore could make ANYTHING work well for him. Well, guess what? HE CAN'T MAKE THIS WORK!
Put simply, this is NOT rock. It's SOFT POP. ...Two stars for the (horrid) effort. People, if you want progressive rock, stick with Jethro Tull. If you want soft pop, there's more than enough bands out there to satisfy you. My final verdict is NOT TO BUY THIS.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Still May Think of You Now and Then June 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wow! So we have This medieval reniasacne prog rock thing led by the guitar master Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple and this wonderful female vocalist I have never heard of before, Candice Night. A lot of their songs are either influenced or are covers of old reneissance classics. Ritchie does a good job with acoustic guitar and Miss Night does a good job looking beautfiul and singing just as well! Since I'm sort of obsessed with that period histroically it is nice to find a nice rock type band influenced by it!
If you want more, I later discovered Aina: The Days of Rising Doom: the Metal Opera in which Candice Night does some vocal work. I would also check out Fires at Midnight and Past Times with Good Company. Very good stuff.
